By Dan Auerbach, AP Sports WriterThe physical therapy profession in the United States has become more specialized, more lucrative and more complicated over the past decade.
It used to be a niche sport.
Now, physical therapists are employed in more than half of the U.S. state-run physical therapy programs.
There are now more than 50,000 licensed physical therapists, and nearly 70,000 full-time employees.
Physicians use a variety of techniques, including orthopedic surgery, massage, acupuncture, biofeedback, massage therapy and homeopathic remedies.
They use a mix of physical therapy equipment, including massage chairs, foam roller, compression machines, treadmills, pressure bands, heaters, thermal blankets and thermal baths.
They also work with patients in an environment similar to a hospital ward, such as a suite, conference room or cafeteria.
The practice requires specialized training and education, but not much time.
The industry has grown at an exponential rate in the past 15 years, and many physical therapists now work at large medical facilities and hospitals.
The demand for physical therapists is growing at a rapid pace.
The total number of physical therapists has tripled since 2010.
According to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism in 2014, there are nearly 300,000 physical therapists in the U, with an estimated 25,000 practicing in the states.
And the number of specialty practices is expected to increase by another 5 percent each year.
“This growth has happened in a relatively short period of time, so I’m not surprised that we’re seeing an explosion of physical therapist employment,” said Mark Cavanaugh, director of the Physician Assistant Program at the University of Florida.
Physician assistants are physical therapists who are also specialists in a specific specialty.
A physical therapist is a physical therapist who works with patients who have health problems, as opposed to those who are suffering from medical problems.
They work with adults and children who need specialized treatment or have other health issues.
Physicists can specialize in a wide range of care, from physical therapy to physical therapy, and from medical care to medical care.
There’s no shortage of physical and medical specialty jobs.
In addition to physical therapists employed in primary care settings, the physical therapy industry has an increasing number of licensed physical therapist assistants, or PHAs, who are specialists in the treatment of adults.
There have been more than 70,500 PHAs in the industry, according to the American College of Physical Therapy, which has published the industry’s most recent annual report.
Physically trained physical therapists have become a key element in the development of new treatments for many chronic diseases.
One of the most well-known treatments for type 2 diabetes is using the therapeutic combination of insulin and glucose to lower blood sugar.
The idea of treating diabetes with a physical therapy regimen is not new, said Dr. Joseph M. Zolota, a professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation at Columbia University and president of the American Physical Therapy Association.
Physical therapists have been doing this for years.
“There’s a lot of evidence, a lot that we know about, that there are many benefits of doing physical therapy,” he said.
Physiologists use a wide variety of methods to treat patients.
The use of ultrasound is the most common, and it’s often used to measure the size of a patient’s waistline, as well as the location of the muscles and joints that cause pain.
A wide variety to the methods used by physiologists includes the use of a needle to stimulate muscle or tendon tissue, a needle that moves through the skin and into the tissue and a balloon, which is used to deliver a medication to a patient.
The use of these techniques has also changed the way physical therapists treat patients with disabilities.
Today, a doctor can take a patient with a disability, and the doctor can use the same techniques that a physical trainer would use to treat a patient who is disabled, said David M. Kopp, associate dean for the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University.
Physiological therapists are not limited to physical treatments.
They can also use massage, homeopathic treatments, acupuncture and other forms of therapy to improve the health of their patients.
In addition, physiologists can work with a patient to treat their physical disabilities, like cerebral palsy or learning disabilities, Kopp said.
They can also specialize in treating people with mental health problems and depression.
The number of mental health professionals working in physical therapy is increasing rapidly, said Kopp.
The rise of physical activity and exercise has been linked to a decrease in cardiovascular disease, depression and other health problems.
And physical therapy can be a great tool to help treat these conditions.
“It’s an excellent place to be if you’re struggling with depression, if you have a mental health issue or you need some help,” said Cavanaugh.
Physical therapists can also offer a range of services that are not related to their physical practice.
