Laura L,

The Physical Therapist is the professional actively engaged in the discipline and science of medicine dealing with physical therapy. Massage, exercise and heat treatements are apart of their daily responsibilities. The Physical Therapist Assistant assists the physical therapist in supplying items used in the physical therapy. This consists of operating the treadmills, setting up the treatment tables and bringing out the exercise balls as well as setting up the ultrasound machines. The better choice is based on your interests and skills. I wish you the best on your journey.
