 KANSAS PROMISE SCHOLARSHIP ELIGIBLE PROGRAM   


Physical therapists provide services that help patients restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain, and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities of those suffering from injuries or disease. Their patients include accident victims and individuals with disabling conditions such as lower back pain, arthritis, heart disease, fractures, head injuries, and cerebral palsy. They design the treatment programs, and assess the patient’s physical abilities and progress, maintain statistical and clinical records, confer with other health care professionals, and often develop and implement health promotion programs.
