Physical Therapy And Respiratory Therapy

Physical therapists and respiratory therapists are healthcare professionals you often see in hospitals who often wear different-colored uniforms to indicate their specialty, which, in the case of physical therapy is the rehabilitation of patients who have suffered from injuries or movement-impairing diseases, and in the case of respiratory therapy, is assisting in the treatment of lung problems. As such, the Physical Therapy/Respiratory Therapy program will teach you about physiology, anatomy, orthopedic principles, therapeutic exercises, functional training and rehabilitation techniques specific to children or the elderly and to various injuries, along with advanced respiratory care for infants, children, the elderly and those in critical conditions.
