Physical therapist assistants (PTAs) help people of all ages with medical issues or health-related conditions that limit their ability to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives. Among their responsibilities, PTAs teach patients exercises to improve their mobility, strength, and coordination; train patients to walk with crutches, canes, or walkers; and provide patient treatments, such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, heat, cold, and massage.
Blinn College's Physical Therapist Assistant Program focuses on student excellence and service in the classroom, in clinical environments, and in the greater community. Students receive extensive hands-on experience in the Blinn Physical Therapy Lab and in clinical experiences at area physical therapy facilities.
