How does a physical therapist job change when they get older?
Im interested in the job, and Im currently 20 trying to decide what I want to do, but I can't imagine someone being a physical therapist when there in their in their 60's kind of like you wouldn't normally see a personal trainer whose in their 60's.. so i imagine you would do something else along the same line when you get older, but what?

As the other person said, PT and personal trainers are two different things. As PT get older, many go into supervision, and homecare. Sometimes, they switch to pediatrics. www.apta.org

Physical therapist and personal trainer are two different positions. A physical therapist usually works with people that have suffered some type of injury or trauma where a personal trainer usually works with people who want to condition and tone their bodies.
