Physical Therapy is a profoundly important practice in caring for our Veterans. It serves as an alternative to surgery, prevents injury, increases mobility, reduces pain and restores independence. At VA, Physical Therapists develop unique and resourceful treatment plans for complex medical conditions. And beyond physical rehabilitation, our Physical Therapists develop wellness and fitness programs tailored to each Veteran’s personal needs. Through this emotionally rewarding practice, our patients and therapists form strong interpersonal levels of trust. Ultimately, our Physical Therapists help Veterans understand their injuries so they can get back to their everyday lives and enjoy long-term health and mobility benefits.

If you’re a Physical Therapist, consider using your skills to improve Veterans’ quality of life. Beyond a rewarding career path, you’ll enjoy a generous and comprehensive benefits package, including our competitive salaries, work/life balance, education support, benefits, flexible work schedules, and hiring programs and incentives.

    What about needs for MS, OTR/L? I’m a daughter of VIETNAM VETERAN. I COME FROM LONG LINE OF MILITARY MEN. I LIVE IN ALEXANDRIA VA. SORRY I’M YELLING IN CAPS…NEW TABLET. OK apologies..I currently work in hm health. I called VA at Ft Belvoir, but they advised President Trump has issued a hiring freeze. I’m interested volunteering as well. Hell, I spend more time with most all of my patients than a typical hm health therapist does already. Where do I begin?

    I have a non-service related chronic illness. I’m looking for a way to get physical therapy for a condition known as rhabdomyolesis. I can function but have chronic pain and muscle weakness. Any advice? Fixed income senior(65) with VA healthcare only.
