Physical therapist assistants work under the supervision of a physical therapist. Their duties include assisting the physical therapist in implementing treatment programs according to the plan of care, training patients in exercises and activities of daily living, conducting treatments, using special equipment, administering therapy and other treatment procedures, and reporting to the physical therapist on the patient’s responses.

Physical therapist assistants work with the physical therapist to provide services that help to improve mobility, alleviate functional limitations and prevent or correct disabilities.

PTAs can assist patients who desire to overcome conditions such as pain, arthritis, orthopedic injuries, neurological conditions, medical illness, pediatric problems and conditions related to aging. Physical therapist assistants serve in many types of settings, including schools, private offices, hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, outpatient clinics and long-term care facilities.
