Most doctors will advise their HIV-positive patients to start combination therapy when it has become clear that HIV is causing significant damage to their immune system - which will normally be many years a…fter the infection with HIV actually occurred - but before they start to get ill and develop AIDS..

Some people will use these term interchangeably but they are not the same. A physical therapy aide is an unskilled staff member of the clinic or hospital. They may be a high school student who one day would like to become a PT or PTA. In other words, only a high school diploma is required. Their res…ponsibilities include setting up treatments (like hot packs, getting things ready for exercises), assisting with lifting or two-person transfers, and assisting with other things under a physical therapist's (PT) or, in some states a PTAs supervision. A well-trained aide may also transport patients or lead group exercises after being deemed competent to do so. A physical therapist assistant (PTA) has completed an intensive 2 year degree with both academic and hands on clinical experiences and has successfully passed the national licensing exam. The curriculum is not as extensive as that for a physical therapist (2 years vs. 6) and therefore a PTAs job description is not as extensive in scope. A PTA, working within the Plan of Care, can develop and implement therapeutic intervention including data collection (manual muscle testing and ROM testing), sensory testing, exercise (strengthening, increasing ROM, gait training, etc.) modalities (US adn estim, for example) and patient education. PTAs do not evaluate patients or create or change a plan of care developed by the PT. Depending on the jurisdiction, a PTA may be required to be in the direct line of sight of a PT, be in the same building or just be able to reach them by phone. (MORE)

Massage therapy is mainly used to relieve stress knots and tension in your body. Physical therapy is used as an aid after a physical trauma. Many athletes go to physical therapist if they have injured themselves. Some physical therapist might do a few massage techniques if they know any, but mainly …they work on getting a specific part of the body that's injured fixed. Lets say an athlete severely injures their Achilles tendon. Most likely he'll have to have surgery on it, and after that he/she goes on a long period of physical therapy on it, stretching it and getting it to it's regular shape. Again, physical therapist might use massage on that area to loosen and relax the muscle, but they'd have to be careful because they wouldn't want to injure it further. If you injured your arm, you'd go to a physical therapist. If you are just tense in your body and feel you have "knots" you'd go to a massage therapist. (MORE)

Depends on the person, their skills and their beliefs about money. Massage therapists who work in jobs don't usually make much. It is possible but rare to make $45 an hour as a massage therapist. .

As I am a tourist, I also had the chance to see the possibility of how to live and stay in London and how to handle a living in one of the most expensive city in the world. As I have ask them one by one if what is the best income or work to have ,most of the people in the house pointed to only one person who work as a massage therapist. I ask why and she answered "the secret is in my touch",because every patient or client who called for her therapeutic touch is always asking for more time or extended the hours for her service,as I continue asking,Because touch promotes healing and warm than machine or the mechanical instrument. And wow,she has the income of more or less P50,000 a day if she can handle 10 patient a day. With the proper body mechanics it is not possible to do that.She told me if she needs quick money like 1 million or more in a month,she must have a regular visits of 10 person a day.......can yo calculate it? That is why when I arrived home I immediately started to learn to become a massage therapist ,and now im just waiting my visa to arrive going back to london.

The following is written by and according to the U.S. Department of Labor and particular to the education and training required for occupational …therapists. Occupational therapists are regulated in all 50 States. Individuals pursuing a career as an occupational therapist usually need to earn a post-baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university or education deemed equivalent. Education and training. A master's degree or higher in occupational therapy is the typical minimum requirement for entry into the field. In addition, occupational therapists must attend an academic program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) in order to sit for the national certifying exam. In 2009, 150 master's degree programs or combined bachelor's and master's degree programs were accredited, and 4 doctoral degree programs were accredited. Most schools have full-time programs, although a growing number are offering weekend or part-time programs as well. Coursework in occupational therapy programs include the physical, biological, and behavioral sciences as well as the application of occupational therapy theory and skills. All accredited programs require at least 24 weeks of supervised fieldwork as part of the academic curriculum. People considering this profession should take high school courses in biology, chemistry, physics, health, art, and the social sciences. College admissions offices also look favorably on paid or volunteer experience in the healthcare field. Relevant undergraduate majors include biology, psychology, sociology, anthropology, liberal arts, and anatomy. Licensure. All States regulate the practice of occupational therapy. To obtain a license, applicants must graduate from an accredited educational program and pass a national certification examination. Those who pass the exam are awarded the title "Occupational Therapist Registered (OTR)." Specific eligibility requirements for licensure vary by State; contact your State's licensing board for details. Some States have additional requirements for therapists who work in schools or early intervention programs. These requirements may include education-related classes, an education practice certificate, or early intervention certification. Certification and other qualifications. Certification is voluntary. The National Board for Certifying Occupational Therapy certifies occupational therapists through a national certifying exam. Those who pass the test are awarded the title Occupational Therapist Registered (OTR). In some States, the national certifying exam meets requirements for regulation while other States have their own licensing exam. Occupational therapists are expected to continue their professional development by participating in continuing education courses and workshops. In fact, a number of States require continuing education as a condition of maintaining licensure. Occupational therapists need patience and strong interpersonal skills to inspire trust and respect in their clients. Patience is necessary because many clients may not show immediate improvement. Ingenuity and imagination in adapting activities to individual needs are assets. Those working in home healthcare services also must be able to adapt to a variety of settings.

Do you mean are people who require it curable from their conditions? Or do you mean does OT cure the people to whom it is given? This is a rundown on OT .

Prognos…is is more complicated and would involve by necessity input from the physicians treating the individual. Occupational therapy practitioners ask, "What matters to you?" not, "What's the matter with you?" In its simplest terms, occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants help people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). Common occupational therapy interventions include helping children with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations, helping people recovering from injury to regain skills, and providing supports for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes. Occupational therapy services typically include: 1) an individualized evaluation, during which the client/family and occupational therapist determine the person's goals, 2) customized intervention to improve the person's ability to perform daily activities and reach the goals, and 3) an outcomes evaluation to ensure that the goals are being met and/or make changes to the intervention plan. 4) Occupational therapy services may include comprehensive evaluations of the client's home and other environments (e.g., workplace, school), recommendations for adaptive equipment and training in its use, and guidance and education for family members and caregivers. Occupational therapy practitioners have a holistic perspective, in which the focus is on adapting the environment to fit the person, and the person is an integral part of the therapy team. (MORE)
