What kind of doctor is a physical therapist?
Physical therapists are not technically doctors, as their education is separate from that of a medical doctor. In order to become a physical therapist, an individual first takes four years of undergraduate studies and then three years of graduate school for a total of seven years before they can practice as a physical therapist in the United States. In this sense, physical therapists are not a poor man’s doctor. Instead, they provide highly specialized knowledge and experience and a unique skillset for treatments that medical doctors do not have the training or expertise to perform. When working in tandem, physical therapists and medical doctors can provide numerous invaluable benefits for treating chronic pain conditions. At the Ramos Center for Interventional & Functional Pain Medicine, we are delighted to offer treatment plans developed by an outstanding team of board-certified physicians and physical therapists!
What are the different types of Physical therapist?
Just as there are many different medical fields that a physician can specialize in, there are also numerous physical therapy specialties! As such, a physical therapist can specialize in any of the following branches of physical therapy:
- Cardiovascular and pulmonary
- Clinical electrophysiology
- Hand therapy
- Manual therapy
- Sports and rehabilitation
- Women’s health
As mentioned, our physical therapists at the Ramos Center specialize in gait and vestibular rehabilitation, strength and condition, orthopedics, and manual therapy!
