What is Physical Therapist Assistant?
A Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) works under the supervision of a physical therapist, and assists in implementing treatment programs according to a plan of care. The PTA trains patients in exercises and activities of daily living, conducts treatments using special equipment, and reports to the physical therapist on the patients’ response.
