Physical therapist assistants help people of all ages who have medical problems or other health-related conditions that limit their ability to move and perform activities in their daily lives.  A PTA may help patients exercise or learn to use crutches, or gather and prepare therapy equipment. Physical therapy patients may include accident victims or individuals with disabling conditions such as lower-back pain, arthritis, heart disease, fractures, head injuries and cerebral palsy.
