Difference between a Physical therapy technician and aide?
I applied for a job as a Physical therapy technition and the job only metioned you need a background in exercise. I have a 4 year degree in Exercise Physiology and 1 year personal training experience. Any ideas what the difference is between a technition and aide or does it sound like the same type of job? Wow the first 2 answers are awesome!!! I hope I get more that are just as informative.
