Physical therapist aides employ a unique combination of skills – physical strength and the sensitivity to offer physical assistance compassionately. Physical therapist aides are the ones at the ready to assist patients in and out of the therapy area of a clinic, offering aid when needed without impinging on a client's sense of independence and mobility. They help support or lift clients who have physical disabilities or injuries that prevent them from moving freely, set up equipment, monitor client progress and help with clerical tasks.
