They are vastly different.

Physio Aid = Do towel laundry, stand there and wait for instructions form the physio, they get ice packs, heat packs and use modalities. aka you are the lowest of low on the clinical food chain. And you make probs $12/hr

Physio - Way more respected, you need a masters, you actual perform treatments etc etc. Much better. Do a degree in Kin, if you dont get into Physio school, become a kinesiologist.
