Search Travel PTA Jobs

Physical therapist assistants carry out their jobs under the supervision and instruction of a certified PT. PTs rely primarily on their Physical therapist assistants, therefore it is important that a Physical therapist assistant can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy techniques. PT assistants employ many physical therapy techniques when looking after clients. Certain methods include deep soft tissue massage, therapeutic exercise, physical modalities particularly ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional training.

Additionally PTAs frequently aid their patients to prevent losing movement by applying health and fitness routines for more active healthier life styles. Anytime a Physical therapist assistant examines a client initially, they help the physical therapist examine the person and develop a therapy program encouraging recovered usability, being able to move, protecting against impairment and reducing suffering. Then, together, the physical therapist, PTA, and client each work together to make sure the purpose of the health plan is attained, calculating client progression, reaction, and well-being while making adjustments as required.
