Physical therapist assistants perform their services underneath the supervision and direction of a licensed physical therapist. PTs rely heavily on their Physical therapist assistants, therefore it is important that a PTA can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy workouts. Physical therapist assistants apply many physical therapy techniques while taking care of patients. A few techniques include physical modalities, deep tissue tissue massage, exercise therapy particularly ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional exercises.

In addition PT assistants often aid their clients to prevent losing mobility by implementing wellness and physical fitness workouts to ensure more active life styles. Whenever a Physical therapy assistant sees a client for the 1st time, the PTA helps the PT examine the individual and create a treatment plan encouraging repaired usability, the ability to move, protecting against impairment and reducing discomfort. Then, as a team, the physical therapist, Physical therapist assistant, and client each work with each other to ensure the goal of the therapy plan is attained, calculating the patient's progression, response, and safety even while making modifications as needed.
