rehabilitation began to emerge in the U.S. between the two world wars, a period
that saw the organization of such physician groups as the American college of
radiology and physiotherapy and the American society of physical therapy
physicians. This Originating with a focus on physical treatment of musculoskeletal
and neurological problems, the field expanded its scope following World War II as it
sought to help disabled veterans resume productive lives. It was recognized as a
board-certified medical specialty, under the name physical medicine. We have

Physical therapy is used in treatment of patients with a disability, disease, or injury

to achieve and maintain functional rehabilitation and to prevent malfunction or
deformity. Treatments are designed to minimize residual physical disability, to
hasten convalescence, and also contribute to the patients comfort and well-being.

and respiratory conditions, which also may be the result of congenital malfunction
or disability. Physical therapists are employed in hospitals, rehabilitation centers,
clinics, nursing homes, and schools for handicapped children. Therapist in federal,
state, and local health agencies; and in private practice. In addition to direct patient
care, physical therapists are involved in other areas including consultation,
supervision, teaching, administration, and research. Professional physical therapists
in the U.S. must be licensed by the state in which they practice. Requirements for
licensing include graduation from an accredited physical-therapy program and
achievement of a passing score on a state-administered national examination.
Physical therapists were trained in bachelors degree programs, but growth in the
amount of knowledge incorporated into physical-therapy curricula prompted the
American Physical Therapy Association to advocate the requirement of a post
baccalaureate professional degree. In 2002 the Commission on Accreditation in
Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE), the accrediting body for U.S. physical-therapy
education programs, ceased to accredit professional education programs at the
bachelors degree level. Graduates of accredited physical-therapy programs now
receive a masters or doctoral degree. Also, these programs include basic science
courses such as biology, chemistry, and physics as well as specialized courses in
such subjects as biomechanics, disease manifestations, human growth and
development, neuroanatomy, examination techniques, and therapeutic procedures.
They also have to have supervised clinical experience. Some physical therapists
seek advanced certification in such specialties as orthopedic, neurologic,
cardiopulmonary, geriatric, pediatric, and sports physical therapy. Physical therapy
