NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/27/13 -- According to an article posted by "The Walton Tribune," physical therapy is "one of the fastest growing occupations in the country right now -- projected by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics to grow another 39 percent in the next decade." There are many elements that may contribute to this surge in popularity, but the fact that physical therapy is being recognized for its ability to improve wellbeing, particularly in seniors, is helping to increase the number of patients who are turning to this field of the medical industry. Sherrie Glasser-Mayrsohn, physical therapy professional, supports the claims of the article with information about her own growing practice.

The article turns to the insight of Otis Clark, who manages Drayer Physical Therapy, in explaining the surge in popularity of physical therapy as it relates to the elderly population: "As people age, they need to rehabilitate. There's also a growing awareness of the benefits of physical therapy."

Glasser-Mayrsohn, who runs Metro Physical & Aquatic Therapy, agrees that the value of physical therapy is more widely recognized now than it has been in the past. Additionally, she points out, the Baby Boomer generation is getting to the age at which physical therapy can prove exceedingly valuable.

"The average lifespan continues to grow, as do the Baby Boomers," comments Sherrie Glasser-Mayrsohn, physical therapy professional. "With physical therapy being an integral part of old age, I have taken numerous courses on wellness and active aging. I currently have 10 clinics located throughout Nassau and Suffolk counties. I foresee in the near future that I will continue to expand due to the increasing need for physical therapists and clinics."

Glasser-Mayrsohn encourages individuals who are interested in learning more about physical therapy to contact a qualified, experienced professional who can answer their questions. The benefits that physical therapy can provide vary from one case to another, and individuals who are facing certain illnesses or physical limitations may find this form of therapy to be extremely helpful in improving their wellbeing and enhancing their overall quality of life. Glasser-Mayrsohn urges seniors, in particular, to consider how incorporating physical therapy into their lives may prove beneficial.
