SOMERS POINT— Physical therapy is becoming a more common post-surgical or preventive treatment, making it one of the nation's fastest-growing occupations, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Jared Mannello, director of rehabilitation for Ivy Rehab in Somers Point, said people are becoming more familiar with the specialty, especially as the population ages.

"The way I look at physical therapy, we need to establish ourselves as a family care practitioner. Everyone should have a family physical therapist," said Mannello, of Somers Point. "Eventually with aging, you'll probably require some hospitalization. It's good to know you'll build a relationship with a physical therapist."

His practice is part of a regional chain founded in 2003.

Ivy Rehab has offices in Somers Point, Egg Harbor Township and Lacey Township and 32 other offices across Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York.

"It's a fun profession. Physical therapy is not all about whirlpools and massages. It's come a long way in training," Mannello said.
