Physical therapy assistants carry out their functions under the supervision and direction of a licensed physical therapist. PTs rely greatly on their PTAs, therefore it is essential that a Physical therapist assistant can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy techniques. Physical therapist assistants apply lots of physical therapy techniques while taking care of people. Some techniques include physical modalities, deep tissue tissue massage, exercise therapy such as ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional training.

Additionally Physical therapist assistants usually assist their patients to prevent losing mobility by establishing wellness and physical fitness workouts to enable more active lifestyles. When a PTA examines a client initially, the PTA helps the physical therapist examine the individual and create a care plan promoting restored functionality, being able to move, protecting against impairment and reducing pain. Then, as a team, the PT, Physical therapy assistant, and client all work with each other to make certain the goal of the health program is reached, measuring client progress, healing, and well-being even while making modifications as needed.
