Age Well, This New Year

The Road to Becoming a Physical Therapist

The road to becoming a physical therapist takes years of education, hard work and dedication. Our Senior Physical Therapist and Cambridge Clinical Director, Alex Eberspacher, DPT, knows this very well. Alex’s story differs from many of our physical therapists, as Alex didn’t know he wanted to be a PT when he started his undergraduate degree. His journey to becoming a PT has many twists and turns, which paved the path for him to earn his Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) in 2016.
