Physiotherapist Employment - Where Are Physiotherapists Employed?

Physiotherapists are considered as one of the best jobs in the United States, according to the Physical Therapy (PT) Notes website. And, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of physiotherapists employed may be less than the available physiotherapy jobs, "because some physiotherapists work part time, holding two or more jobs."

  • Home healthcare services industry

Some physiotherapists may be self-employed in private practices, either seeing individual patients or contracting with other providers, such as in hospitals, nursing care facilities, or adult daycare programs.
