Physical therapists have always had a challenging time getting into the state’s burgeoning field.
It’s a challenging job, especially since physical therapists are among the fastest-growing professions in the country, according to the American Physical Therapy Association.
According to a report from the Texas Professional Association of Physical Therapists, physical therapists saw their enrollment increase from 2,000 in 2010 to 7,000 last year.
That increase has resulted in the profession being in demand for years, with more than 40 percent of physical therapists nationwide working in the last 10 years.
The Texas Board of Physical Therapy has also made it easier to find a physical therapy program.
In 2016, Texas lawmakers created the Texas Physical Therapy Professional Association (TPPPA), a body that’s been able to set up a statewide network of physical therapy programs to offer better access to physical therapy.
Now, in 2017, TPPPA is planning to hold its first physical therapy conference in Texas.
The conference is set to be held in Austin on February 24 and 25.
That means a lot of physical therapist professionals are looking to the state to set them up for a career.
The physical therapist profession is growing faster than any other profession in the U.S., with a projected 5 percent growth rate from 2020 to 2025.
It also offers a variety of jobs and benefits, like paid sick leave and access to paid family leave.
Some physical therapists earn upwards of $60,000 annually.
With all of the changes to the physical therapist industry over the last few years, many physical therapists say they want to move to Texas, which has a high rate of unemployment.
It seems like every day there’s something new and exciting about physical therapy, but it can be challenging to find jobs in the state.
One physical therapist in Austin said he recently found himself stuck in a hiring process with the TPPPA.
“They’ve just been very receptive to me and they’ve given me the resources to work in their system,” said Patrick Miller, the executive director of the Austin Physical Therapy Council.
“It was a great experience to be a part of.”
He said the TPPPa has given him and his colleagues the tools to build a solid career.
Miller has been working with physical therapists in the Austin area for about 15 years.
He said that even though he’s a physical therapist, he was looking for work when he found out the TPPPPA would hold its inaugural convention.
He’s hoping to apply to physical therapists at the conference.
“I’m looking for a position in physical therapy at some point in the future,” Miller said.
He added that he’s also looking for other physical therapists to apply for his position in the TPPPG.
“At the end of the day, I think it’s important to look at it as a career, and I think that we have a lot more work to do as a profession,” Miller added.
According the TPPpa, more than 1,600 physical therapists and allied health professionals from around the country will attend the event in Austin.
