Physical therapy assistants play an important role with patient care and are a valued member of the healthcare team of movement and rehabilitation specialists. They work under a licensed physical therapist and are directly involved in the care of patients who have movement disorders following an injury or illness.
Physical therapist assistants can work in many environments and in multiple specialty areas such as neurologic, orthopedic, cardiac and pulmonary, sports medicine, geriatric and women’s health.
