Physical Therapy

Make your move. Physical therapists know better than anyone how the human body moves through the world, how resilient it can be — and how much support it needs. The body is able to endure so much activity, strain, sickness and injury, but it needs care so that the person can stay well not just physically but emotionally. No one wants their body to be a limitation, and those who can help them can truly be a hero in their lives. When you choose to be a physical therapist, you are choosing to be someone else's hero. You are helping them overcome physical limitations not only with hands-on care, but also by helping them become their own hero. You teach them exercises to build mobility, and in some cases, how to move again. And when you earn a physical therapy degree from Regis University, you commit to a life of service and healing propelled onward by the excellence you can only receive through an education in the true Jesuit Catholic tradition.
