Posted on in Medical License Defense

Illinois license defense attorneyPhysical therapy is a great practice for individuals who want to help others feel better after a long-term illness, injury, or any other situation requiring the re-use of muscles and joints. To qualify to become a physical therapist, an applicant needs to go through extensive programs to learn about the human body and how to correctly fix various physical problems. Once the applicant is familiar with the rules and regulations of applying for a physical therapist licensure, he or she will be able to successfully obtain such privileges to help others.

What Is Physical Therapy?

Physical therapy is defined as the examination and evaluation of individuals who may have physical impairments or disabilities, and then classifying and determining a rehabilitation plan to get a person back to a normal life.

Physical therapy is also defined as the practice of alleviating impairments and disabilities, as well as creating methods of reducing the risk of injury and impairment while emphasizing fitness, health, and wellness. Licensed physical therapists also frequently engage in administration, consultation, education, and research on different topics and categories of physical therapy curricula.

Requirements for a Physical Therapy License

The applicant for the physical therapy license must be at least 21 years of age or older and of good moral character. In order to determine good moral character, any conviction may be taken into account but may not automatically prevent the applicant from receiving his or her physical therapy license.

The applicant needs to have graduated from an approved physical therapy program, and must also pass an examination to determine the ability to practice as a physical therapist. In order to further evaluate the applicant’s qualifications for a physical therapy license, a personal interview may be requested.
