Physical therapist assistants (PTAs) help physical therapists provide important services to people with disabilities and those recovering from injuries.
The PTA carries out the plan of care created by the physical therapist (PT), monitors the patient’s progress, and documents the care the patient receives.
As a PTA, you'll provide treatments in strengthening, flexibility, aerobic conditioning, exercise, balance activities, functional training, gait training, modalities and other therapeutic interventions, as well as patient and caregiver education.
