Therapeutic Interventions for Physical Therapist Assisting (PTA 125)

This course addresses the basic physical science and principles of selected physical therapy interventions to facilitate improvements in range of motion, strength, endurance, balance, and pain management. Common equipment and exercise interventions will be covered. Presentation of a wide variety of clinical scenarios and pathologies facilitates the student's ability to use clinical judgment in selecting applying appropriate therapeutic interventions. During student-to-student practice in the on-campus laboratory setting students use simulated patient scenarios to demonstrate competency attainment. This course is subject to a course fee.
