Physical Therapist Assistants and Aides Outline

Physical therapy assistants carry out their jobs beneath the supervising and instruction of a licensed physical therapist. Physical therapists rely heavily on their Physical therapy assistants, therefore it is important that a Physical therapy assistant can offer patients a complete plan of physical therapy exercises. Physical therapist assistants apply numerous physical therapy methods while caring for clients. Some methods include physical modalities, deep soft tissue massage, therapeutic exercise such as for instance ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional exercises.

Additionally PTAs commonly aid their patients to prevent losing movement by implementing health and fitness workouts for more active healthy life styles. When a Physical therapist assistant examines a patient for the first time, the PTA helps the PT examine the individual and develop a therapy plan supporting recovered functions, the ability to move, avoiding impairment and pain reduction. Then, together as a team, the PT, PTA, and individual all work together to make certain the purpose of the health plan is achieved, measuring client progress, response, and safety even while making adjustments as required.
