Physical Therapy Career

Physical Therapist Assistants and Aides - Working conditions

The hours and days that physical therapist assistants and aides work vary with the facility and with whether they are full- or part-time employees. Many outpatient physical therapy offices and clinics have evening and weekend hours, to help coincide with patientsí personal schedules. About 30 percent of all physical therapist assistants and aides work part time.

Physical therapist assistants and aides need a moderate degree of strength because of the physical exertion required in assisting patients with their treatment. In some cases, assistants and aides need to lift patients. Constant kneeling, stooping, and standing for long periods also are part of the job.

Physical therapist assistants and aides work under the supervision of physical therapists. Other workers in the health care field who work under similar supervision include dental assistants, medical assistants, occupational therapist assistants and aides, pharmacy aides, pharmacy technicians, and social and human service assistants.

Employment is projected to increase much faster than average; physical therapist aides may face keen competition from the large pool of qualified applicants.

Physical therapist assistants generally have an associate degree, but physical therapist aides usually learn skills on the job.

About 60 percent of jobs are in hospitals or offices of physical therapists.
