PT career + injury/illness

What specialties are the most/least physically demanding? How doable is it to move between specialties? Are there any areas that do not involve any/much manual therapy (i.e. massage, manual joint mobilization, etc.)?

Coming from the professional dance world where injury/illness often ends one's performing career, I'm wondering what the options are for a PT who becomes chronically ill or injured.

Thanks in advance.:confused:
