Physical therapist assistants conduct their services under the supervising and instruction of a licensed PT. PTs rely greatly on their PTAs, so it is important that a PTA can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy exercises. PTAs employ numerous physical therapy techniques when helping people. Several methods include deep soft tissue massage, exercise therapy, physical modalities such as for example ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional exercises.

Furthermore PTAs often aid their patients to prevent losing movement by implementing wellness and physical fitness workouts to facilitate more active healthy life styles. When a PTA sees a patient for the first time, they help the PT study the individual and develop a treatment plan promoting recovered usability, being able to move, protecting against disability and pain reduction. Then, together, the PT, PTA, and client each work together to make sure the purpose of the therapy program is reached, measuring patient progress, healing, and safety while making modifications as necessary.
