Physical therapist assistants conduct their jobs under the supervision and direction of a licensed PT. Physical therapists rely heavily on their PTAs, so it's important that a PTA can offer clients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy practices. Physical therapy assistants apply lots of physical therapy techniques while looking after patients. Certain methods incorporate deep soft tissue massage, exercise therapy, physical modalities such as for instance ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional training.

In addition PT assistants commonly assist their patients to avoid losing movement by creating wellness and physical fitness programs for more active lifestyles. Whenever a Physical therapist assistant sees a client initially, the PTA helps the PT analyze the person and develop a therapy plan encouraging restored usability, being able to move, preventing disability and pain reduction. Then, as a team, the physical therapist, PTA, and individual all work together to make certain the objective of the health program is attained, calculating patient progress, reaction, and well-being while making adjustments as needed.
