Thousands of people attend physical therapy schools every day to become a part of this hot career field. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, employment of physical therapy aides is expected to grow by 29% over the next decade, which is much faster than the average job. A physical therapy aide most often works under the direction of a physical therapist and/or physical therapy assistant. Physical therapy aide jobs often include keeping the treatment area clean and well organized, as well as helping escort patients in wheelchairs, performing clerical duties, ordering supplies and more. A physical therapy aide generally needs to be well organized, have patience, and enjoy working with others.
