Physical Therapy Assistants assist Physical Therapists with many important tasks, including:

  • Helping patients who are recovering from injuries, illnesses and surgery to regain movement and manage pain.
  • Being key players in a team that help people to become mobile again.
  • Working in a variety of settings, from hospitals, rehabilitation centers, nursing facilities, private practices, clinics, schools, nursing homes, and more.
  • Utilizing specific techniques and modalities, such as massage, ultrasound, hydrotherapy, stretching and other exercise methods to treat patients.
