Physical therapy assistants perform their functions under the guidance and instruction of a certified PT. PTs rely primarily on their Physical therapist assistants, therefore it is necessary that a PTA can offer patients a complete plan of physical therapy exercises. PT assistants employ many physical therapy techniques when caring for patients. Some techniques include physical modalities, deep soft tissue tissue massage, therapeutic exercise like ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional training.

Furthermore Physical therapist assistants usually assist their clients to prevent losing movement by implementing health and fitness workouts to create more active healthy lifestyles. Whenever a Physical therapy assistant sees a patient first, they help the physical therapist analyze the individual and develop a treatment plan encouraging repaired functions, the ability to move, preventing disability and pain reduction. Then, together, the PT, Physical therapist assistant, and client each work collectively to make sure the objective of the therapy program is attained, measuring client progress, healing, and well-being even while making adjustments as required.
