With the information on physical therapist assistants. You can go into so many categories like : military, child or elders, sports, and women's heath. In Oklahoma they start out with 33.00 bucks and hour. With a good heart of helping people the pay is not bad its self. It takes about two years to become a physical therapist assistant. And to be just a Physical therapist takes up to tree years. Many people cant be in this profession because it takes time and care to get that person to their goals. That is one of the reasons why I would love working at this job. To help people and help them reach their goals.
