This groundbreaking text has been written specifically for PTAs by an expert in the field and delves into the ever-expanding role of the PTA in the clinical setting, as well as the regulations that govern the PTA’s scope of work.

Inside, you’ll find the knowledge you need to grow as a PTA. By understanding the importance of this information and how it affects you, your colleagues, and your patients, this text empowers you in your new role and in your professional relationships.

Finally a book that address the role of the PTA in a clear, concise, and objective manner …. The use of the colors and diagrams are wonderful and I especially like the For Reflection bullets and Review and Application sections. I have adopted it for one of the courses I teach in our curriculum and plan to ask our faculty to please read it. I simply LOVE your book! - Marlene Carmona, DPT, MSPT, Associate Professor and Program Coordinator, PTA Program, Miami Dade College
