PTAs carry out their tasks under the guidance and instruction of a certified physical therapist. Physical therapists rely greatly on their PTAs, so it is essential that a PTA can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy exercises. PT assistants employ lots of physical therapy techniques when taking care of clients. A few methods consist of physical modalities, deep tissue tissue massage, therapeutic exercise particularly ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional training.

Additionally Physical therapist assistants commonly assist their patients to prevent losing mobility by establishing health and physical fitness routines to create more active healthier life styles. Whenever a Physical therapy assistant sees a client initially, they help the physical therapist examine the person and create a treatment program supporting repaired usability, the ability to move, preventing disability and pain reduction. Then, together as a team, the PT, Physical therapist assistant, and client all work with each other to ensure the objective of the therapy program is achieved, calculating patient progress, response, and well-being even while making modifications as needed.
