Carrington’s Physical Therapist Assistant Program

Physical Therapist Assistant

Physical therapist assistants work under the supervision of a licensed physical therapist to help patients with mobility and flexibility. Many patients who seek out physical therapy are recovering from injuries, disabilities or other health concerns, but physical therapist assistants may also help patients who just want to live healthier lives and increase mobility. While a physical therapist makes a diagnosis and treatment plan, a physical therapist assistant may help patients complete exercises and stretch or complete other therapeutic techniques. Carrington’s Physical Therapist Assistant program can be completed in as few as 19 months.

Respiratory Care/Respiratory Therapist

Respiratory therapists help patients breathe easier, quite literally. A respiratory therapist may work with a premature infant whose lungs are not properly developed, a young adult with chronic breathing issues due to asthma, or an elderly patient dealing with an advanced diagnosis affecting the lungs. Carrington’s Respiratory Therapist Education program helps students learn to assess and treat patients with respiratory diagnoses and can be completed in as few as 23 months.
