Certified Restorative Aide

Helping patients get back on their feet can be an uplifting career.

The road to recovery can be challenging. As more of us live longer lives, the potential for disabling injuries or conditions increases. Physical therapists are seeing significant increases in their patient loads and are continuing to rely on the support of Certified Restorative Aides (CRA). 

The CRA curriculum instructs you in musculoskeletal anatomy and function, the full range of restorative exercise therapies, and the preparation and execution of care plans. In addition to classroom instruction, you learn to use rehabilitative equipment.
