A Physical therapist (PT) is a healthcare professional who diagnoses and treats individuals of all ages, who have health-related conditions, illnesses or injuries that may limit their ability to move and perform functional activities as well as they would like in their daily lives. PTs examine each individual and develop a plan using treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function and prevent disability. PTs evaluate and diagnose movement dysfunction and use therapeutic interventions to treat patients.


A Physical Therapy Assistant (PTA) works under the direction of a physical therapist to provide care to patients who are recovering from injuries, illnesses or surgery. Physical Therapy Assistants provide therapy to patients through specific exercises, educate patients and family members about what to do after treatment, observe patients before and during therapy and report patients’ responses to treatment to the physical therapist.
