PHYSICAL THERAPIST ASSISTANT

As a physical therapist assistant, you deal with one of the most important aspects of the human body — movement. You will care for patients, guiding them from physical disability to reach the highest level of physical ability possible. In addition, you will be under the supervision of a licensed physical therapist providing treatments that improve mobility, improve physical strength and endurance, restore functional ability in work, play and daily life, and that relieve pain.
