Become a Physical Therapy Aide

LinkedIn

Fee: $215

Prepare for a rewarding career as a valued member of the physical therapy team while learning all about the human body, specific disorders, and the way physical therapists treat these disorders. You will explore the history of physical therapy and the relationships between physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and physical therapy aides. You will learn how to communicate effectively with other health care professionals and patients. You'll also come to understand the medical documentation that physical therapists use and principles of ethics and law that affect the PT aide. Physical therapists often use words and terms that may be unfamiliar to you, so this course will devote some time to learning much of the language of PT. You'll learn proper body mechanics and how to safely move patients. You will come to understand the normal gait cycle and how to help patients walk with assistive devices like walkers, crutches, and canes. You will also investigate various balance and coordination disorders. By the time you finish this course, you'll have gained valuable knowledge and be well on your way to becoming an important member of the physical therapy team!
