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:

me three.
I'm an undergrad now thinking about pt. However, every place I shadow has employees who are changing fields because of the strain on their own bodies. Do I have a skewed sample or is this really how it goes?
