October is an extremely important month when it comes to raising awareness for great causes and great educational programs and UA Cossatot’s Physical Therapy program is busy this October recognizing and raising awareness of the great benefits physical therapy provides. Physical therapists (PTs) and physical therapist assistants (PTAs) play a vital role in helping individuals improve function, mobility, and pain relief. In addition, PTs and PTAs encourage individuals to play an active role in their own care.
This semester, UA Cossatot students are learning many foundational concepts in preparation for building on future knowledge needed for therapeutic exercise. This semester as part of their learning, UA Cossatot students are building the muscles of the body on a skeleton in order to provide physical and visual learning of the location of these muscles and how they assist in everyday movement.
UA Cossatot began the Physical Therapist Assistant program in 2018. In August, the PTA program admitted its second cohort.
