Physical Therapists

Work Environment

Shifts for physical therapist vary from a standard 40-hour work week to longer shifts but fewer days per week. Patient sessions may be brief or may last an hour or more. Usually, treatment is on an individual basis, but occasionally therapy may be given in groups when the patients' problems are similar. Most physical therapists work full-time, and about 5 percent are self-employed.
