Fun Physical Therapy Facts

Physical therapy, as a profession, began during World War I in response to the need created when our soldiers were injured in war. The field of physical therapy was initially a female dominant profession, as it stemmed from nursing.

When World War II occurred, more injured soldiers were surviving and their various musculoskeletal injuries due to medical advancements, and were treated by physical therapists.

As time continued and healthcare and physical therapy advanced the profession went beyond treating injured soldiers. Today, physical therapists have specializations from: cardiopulmonary, geriatrics, neurology, orthopedics, pediatrics, sports medicine, vestibular, to women’s health.

Physical Therapy education transitioned to a Master’s of Science degree in the 1990’s and more recently it has advanced again to a doctoral level.
