Physical therapy assistants perform their functions underneath the guidance and instruction of a licensed physical therapist. Physical therapists rely heavily on their PTAs, therefore it is important that a Physical therapist assistant can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy exercises. Physical therapist assistants apply many physical therapy techniques while caring for people. A few techniques consist of deep soft tissue massage, therapeutic exercise, physical modalities like ultrasound and electrotherapy as well as functional exercises.

In addition PT assistants regularly aid their clients to avoid losing movement by implementing wellness and physical fitness programs for more active healthier lifestyles. When a Physical therapist assistant examines a client initially, they help the physical therapist study the individual and develop a therapy program supporting restored functions, being able to move, preventing disability and reducing pain. Then, together, the PT, PTA, and client all work together to make sure the goal of the therapy program is attained, measuring client progression, reaction, and well-being even while making modifications as needed.
