Physical therapy is a rapidly growing field. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, physical therapist jobs are expected to grow 39% by 2020. This rise in demand can be attributed in large part to the aging baby boomer population. Because boomers are living longer than previous generations, they are more likely to require physical therapy for mobility-related illnesses and injuries.

Acute care physical therapist jobs are particularly important in helping baby boomers and other patient populations recover from illnesses and injuries that affect mobility. In acute care, physical therapists treat patients in the hospital for short-term patient care recovery from a trauma, illness or surgery.

In an acute care setting, physical therapists help to arrange a safe discharge for patients. Usually, this is comprised of providing short-term physical therapy treatment that equips patients with techniques to stay mobile and manage their pain upon discharge.  However, in more severe instances, acute care physical therapist jobs may involve arranging and preparing patients for long-term treatment after discharge. The ultimate goal is to make the necessary arrangements to get the patient safely discharged as soon as possible.

Whether you’re looking for acute PT jobs or any other jobs in physical therapy, you can find them right here at ADVANCE Healthcare Jobs. Search for positions by job title, location or employer to narrow your results and find the best matches!
