Job Description for Senior Physical Therapist

Senior physical therapists help individuals who have experienced injuries or illness with physical movement and pain management. The range of patient conditions can vary widely from simple ankle sprains to leg fractures to ischemic strokes that have resulted in paralysis. Senior physical therapists design a program to increase function and allow patients to better be able to complete activities of daily living. This includes working alongside fellow healthcare professionals such as occupational therapists and speech language pathologists to plan and coordinate on a complete care plan. Then, senior physical therapists must work with patients to explain and carry out physical therapy in accordance with this plan and update the plan as necessary.
