Are you seeking a career as a Physical Therapist Assistant?

Physical therapist assistants and aides provide treatment that improves patient mobility, relieves pain, and prevents or lessens physical disabilities, under the direction of physical therapists. Employment is projected to grow much faster than average. Physical therapist assistants should have very good job prospects; on the other hand, aides may face keen competition from the large pool of qualified applicants.
