Pay - this will vary depending on size of clinic and location.

- The median annual wage for physical therapist aides was $27,000 in May 2019.

- The median annual wage for physical therapist assistants was $58,790 in May 2019.

Job Outlook
Overall employment of physical therapist assistants and aides is projected to grow 29 percent from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for all occupations. Demand for physical therapy is expected to increase in response to the healthcare needs of an aging population and individuals with chronic conditions, such as diabetes and obesity.

Sheila’s Answer

Hello A:

Physical therapist assistants, sometimes called PTAs, and physical therapist aides work under the direction and supervision of physical therapists. They help patients who are recovering from injuries and illnesses to regain movement and manage pain.

The median annual wage for physical therapist aides was $27,000 in May 2019. The median wage is the wage at which half the workers in an occupation earned more than that amount and half earned less. The lowest 10% percent earned less than $20,310, and the highest 10% percent earned more than $39,740.

The median annual wage for physical therapist assistants was $58,790 in May 2019. The lowest 10% percent earned less than $33,450, and the highest 10% percent earned more than $80,840.

Employment of physical therapist assistants is projected to grow 33% percent from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for all occupations.

Best of luck to you!
