Physical therapy is helpful from cradle to grave

"Barbara Boucher, a physical therapist and director of Rehabilitation Services at the University of Connecticut Health Center, believes there is no age limit for physical therapy, and has seen its benefits for 20 years.

Boucher has been involved in helping infants who are born with physical developmental problems, people recovering from injuries and surgery, preventive therapy, and loss of mobility during aging."

While most people may think of hospitals or clinics when they think of physical therapy, there are many other places where therapists help. Physical therapists are in school systems helping the developmentally disabled, in nursing homes, in rehabilitation facilities helping people who are ready to leave the hospital but not yet able to return home. They help paraplegics learn how to propel wheel chairs, and they are in health clubs helping people with fitness while avoiding injury.
