Physical Therapy Assistants

Employment prospects are very good for physical therapy assistants. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment will grow much faster than the average for all careers through 2022. Many new positions for physical therapy assistants are expected to open up as hospital programs that aid the disabled expand and as long-term facilities seek to offer residents more adequate services. Physical therapists can assign many parts of treatment to physical therapy assistants and aides, and thus reduce costs of physical therapy services. The passage of the¬†Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will also expand the number of people who have health insurance, which will create more demand for physical therapy professionals.  ¬†
