When you think about it, professional physical therapy is just a job.
There’s a huge range of different jobs in physical therapists, including chiropractors, physical therapists and physical therapists who specialize in the physical treatment of people with disabilities.
There’s no such thing as a ‘professional’ physical therapist.
In fact, the term ‘physician’ can be confusing because physical therapists have so many different occupations, but the term is used interchangeably.
Professional physical therapists are typically paid by their profession, which typically involves a degree in a medical or health field.
While some of the jobs are well-paying, there’s a significant pay gap between the pay of the highest-paid professionals and the lowest-paid workers.
While there’s some overlap between the different types of physical therapy jobs, there are certain areas of specialty where pay is often higher than average.
A physical therapist specializing in physical rehabilitation can earn between $60,000 and $90,000 per year.
That’s a lot of money.
A physical therapist who specializes in the treatment of children is usually paid between $50,000 to $70,000 a year.
A physiologist specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer is typically paid between between $40,000-$50,00 a year, according to the National Institute on Aging.
A physiotherapist specializing in treating patients with chronic pain, diabetes, arthritis, or other conditions is usually paying between $30,000-40,00 per year, the American Academy of Pediatrics said.
A therapist who works with individuals with autism spectrum disorder, which includes Asperger’s syndrome and Aspergers-related disorders, can earn up to $45,000.
A therapist specializing on the treatment and treatment for multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s disease can earn as much as $75,000, according the American Psychological Association.
Physicians who specialize on the care of elderly people are often paid between about $30-35,000 in annual salary.
And if you have children, the average income of a physical therapist is between $25,000 or $30.
That’s a big difference from the $100-150 per-hour wage the average family pays for a nurse practitioner or a social worker, according and the National Association of Social Workers.
And, of course, there is the money that comes with training.
For physical therapists with specialized training, a diploma can go for $45k or more.
A nurse practitioner can earn $80k.
The median salary of a certified physical therapist in the U.S. is $91,000 annually, according ToTheFuture.
That is, it’s not uncommon for physical therapists to earn a bit more than the median salary.
According to PayScale.com, physical therapy professionals are more likely to be part of an elite medical, dental, and hospital training program, and they often earn higher salaries than the typical public school graduate.
The median annual salary for a physical therapy associate is $81,000; the median for a full-time physical therapist, $91K.
