Becoming a Therapist: The Differences Between a Career in Physical Therapy Vs. Occupational Therapy

If you’re a busy parent who has decided to make a career change, you already know how monumental that decision is. Changing careers while taking care of your growing family means making a lot of sacrifices – perhaps bringing tumultuous change to your everyday life. However, you most likely didn’t make that decision on a whim, you made it because the time and the circumstances were right for a change.

What’s more, you’re sure that the long-term benefits of that career change will outweigh the struggles you may face. Those benefits are particularly clear if you’re considering entering the world of therapy, where you’ll not only have an opportunity to impact the lives of patients for the better, but you’ll also have an opportunity for greater career fulfillment and financial security for your family.

The decision to change careers while taking care of a family is not an easy one, but it may be the right one for you. Though before you start on the path to your new career in therapy, there still are some other important decisions to make. The following guide illustrates the differences between physical therapy and occupational therapy.
