If phlebotomists are vampires....

  1. what is a nickname for physical therapists?

    My niece is studying to be one, and I wanted to make her a gift with the occupational nickname. I've searched various PT sites, but no luck.

    I've heard that phlebotomists have the nickname of 'vampires'. Does anyone know the nickname for physical thereapists?

    Thanks. Kavi

    I've heard "physical terrorist"

    Jim Brady gave that knick-name to his PT after he was shot during the Reagan assassination attempt.

    I suppose calling anyone a terrorist would not be too funny nowaday, though.
