Want to make a change and help people in a positive way? A physical therapist is probably the job for you. Some things that you would have to do to become a physical therapist gets your bachelor’s degree. The two main classes that you would need to take would be anatomy and biology. When you come to those classes you would have to enroll in to physical therapy program. When you complete those programs that would probably take 3 years you would have to take and pass the national physical therapy examination. If you are thinking of extending your physical therapy career you would have to be board-certified, which requires an exam and several hours of clinical work. Pros of becoming a physical therapist would be getting a good amount of money. You would get a raise. Helping people make a change in their life in a positive way. On the other hand, when being a physical therapist can also be very stressful. You would have to deal with people that have so much trauma they carry or you would have to have patients.

I understand that becoming a physical therapist is a lot of work but imagine how you would feel like a person when see look at your patients and you realize how they are progressing. Knowing that they are wanting to thank you because you are making an impact in their lives. On the other hand, I also have to understand that it is not easy. Many patients are stubborn and struggle with physical therapy due to their trauma.
