Hire Physical Therapists

 

Working as a physical therapist requires clinical expertise, patience, and determination. Physical therapists are licensed professionals who help patients restore their physical mobility and function. These patients may be recovering from injuries or surgeries, or are coping with chronic conditions that affect movement. Ultimately, physical therapists promote wellness and improve their patient’s quality of life. 

Physical therapists work in various settings such as hospitals, outpatient clinics, rehabilitation centers, and nursing homes, among others. They may work on a part-time or full-time basis. Unlike other healthcare professionals like doctors or nurses, physical therapists work daytime hours and do not work nights. However, physical therapists may accommodate a patient’s schedule and adjust their shift to an earlier or later time. Depending on the setting, physical therapists may treat patients on a short-term or long-term basis. 

When looking to hire physical therapists, hiring managers first identify the specific needs of the hospital or healthcare facility. They obtain details to make an accurate job description. For instance, does the clinic or healthcare facility cater to a specific group like athletes, the elderly, or individuals with chronic conditions? What are the expected work hours for physical therapists in the facility? 

Next, post the job vacancy on social media platforms, hiring websites, and healthcare-specific online groups. Also, asking employees for referrals is a reliable way to source candidate leads. 

 

Responsibilities of a Physical Therapist

Physical therapists begin their work by interviewing patients and learning about their medical history and physical condition. They take note of their personal goals in restoring movement and wellness. The consultation is an opportunity to establish rapport and gain the patient’s trust. Upon analyzing the patient’s condition and goals, physical therapists diagnose movement dysfunction and come up with an individualized treatment plan, ensuring realistic goals. 

Physical therapists discuss the treatment plan with patients and focus on what they need to do to achieve their goals. They work with patients one treatment session at a time, teaching and guiding them about proper exercise techniques and massage to alleviate pain and promote healing. When necessary, physical therapists assist patients in using walkers and wheelchairs. Physical therapists collaborate with other healthcare professionals involved in the care of the patient. 

Physical therapists educate patients and their families about home treatment, therapeutic exercises, and injury prevention. They maintain accurate patient records, noting patients’ history and progress after each treatment session. 

 

Skills and Qualifications of a Physical Therapist

Candidates must hold an updated license to practice as a physical therapist in the state where the job vacancy is available. A master’s degree in physical therapist is required. The ideal candidate is compassionate, patient, with a helpful attitude. Physical therapists conduct face-to-face treatment sessions and collaborate with the patient’s family members and other healthcare professionals. Excellent interpersonal and communication skills are also important.

Physical therapists are essential to the quality of life of patients. They treat patients through clinical expertise and cheer them on towards progress and wellness.
