    I used to hear the term "physiotherapist" in the 1950s. In recent years,"physical therapist" has become far more common, at least in my area of the USA. The profession has upgraded itself so that the entry level degree is now a doctoral degree.

    In the US, the abbreviation is DPT. At the university where I worked, we had a five year program for the degree, which could be started right after high school.
