Are you interested in pursuing a growing career path that helps people regain their top physical function? Physical therapist assistants work under the supervision of a physical therapist to promote a patient’s ability to move, restore bodily function, reduce pain and prevent disability.

What do Physical Therapist Assistants do?

Physical therapist assistants carry out the physical therapist’s plan of patient care, working with injured athletes, accident victims, disabled children and anyone else whose physical ability is impaired. Working environments could include acute care and community hospitals, rehabilitation units, long-term care facilities, schools or private practices.
