Description : Jobs in physical therapy and rehabilitation are an excellent choice for those who want a secure, in-demand career that makes a difference in people's lives. In many states, rewarding positions in the field can be accessed with an associate's degree. Working under the direction of physical therapists and occupational therapists, PT assistants and aides help patients recover from injuries, illnesses, and surgery, while OT assistants and aides help patients with disabilities learn skills to function successfully in everyday life. Enhanced with sidebars and vivid photos, the text describes typical working environments, tasks, equipment, and approaches in these fields, as well as the education needed to start a career.
