Our Physical Therapist Assistants

Physical Therapist Assistants

Physical Therapist Assistants (PTAs) are licensed professionals who have graduated from the Commission on Accreditation of Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE) educational program. They have participated in extensive classroom and clinical education and hold an Associate of Science degree in Physical Therapy. They have taken and passed the National Physical Therapy Exam (NPTE) of the Federation of State Boards of Physical Therapy.
