Physical therapy aide jobs are increasing at a rapid pace. The Bureau of Labor and statistics predicts positions to grow up to 43% by 2020. To learn more about this exciting field in healthcare, read on.
As a physical therapy aide, you will be responsible for assisting physical therapists. Typical duties include clerical tasks, such as completing insurance forms, scheduling visits, and ordering supplies. You may also be responsible for preparing and maintaining the treatment area along with assisting patients who have difficulty moving.
Your duties may involve more direct patient care depending on the state in which you work. Some states require physical therapist assistants to be licensed, and so physical therapy aides who are not licensed cannot help as much with patients.
PTA positions don’t require a degree, although some certifications may be needed. To see what physical therapy aide jobs your area has to offer, visit the ADVANCE job board today!
