PT assistants conduct their services under the guidance and instruction of a licensed PT. Physical therapists rely greatly on their PT assistants, therefore it is important that a Physical therapy assistant can offer clients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy exercises. Physical therapist assistants employ many physical therapy methods when caring for clients. Some methods incorporate physical modalities, deep tissue massage, exercise therapy particularly ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional exercises.

Furthermore PTAs commonly assist their patients to prevent losing mobility by developing wellness and physical fitness routines to facilitate more active healthy lifestyles. Whenever a Physical therapy assistant examines an individual for the 1st time, the PTA helps the physical therapist analyze the individual and create a therapy plan promoting restored functions, being able to move, protecting against disability and reducing suffering. Then, together, the physical therapist, PTA, and client all work together to make certain the purpose of the therapy plan is reached, measuring the patient's progression, reaction, and well-being while making adjustments as necessary.
