Rehabilitate your Career: Become a Physical Therapist Assistant
Many physical therapy schools may have programs for both physical therapists and physical therapy assistants. Physical therapist assistants may perform some components of the physical therapy process to help physical therapists relieve pain, restore muscle function, and improve mobility for patients suffering from injuries or disease.
What Physical Therapy School May Offer
Although some physical therapy assistants are trained on the job, most typically have associate's degrees from a physical therapy school. Coursework is generally divided into an academic component including algebra, anatomy and physiology, biology, chemistry, and psychology and a hands-on clinical component.
