Physical therapy assistants conduct their services under the supervising and direction of a licensed physical therapist. Physical therapists rely heavily on their Physical therapist assistants, so it is crucial that a Physical therapy assistant can offer clients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy activities. PT assistants apply many physical therapy techniques while taking care of patients. Several techniques consist of physical modalities, deep soft tissue massage, therapeutic exercise such as ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional training.

Furthermore Physical therapist assistants often aid their patients to prevent losing mobility by implementing wellness and physical fitness workouts for more active healthy life styles. When a Physical therapist assistant examines a patient for the first time, they help the PT analyze the individual and create a care plan supporting restored functions, being able to move, avoiding impairment and reducing suffering. Then, together as a team, the physical therapist, Physical therapy assistant, and patient each work collectively to ensure the purpose of the therapy program is attained, calculating client progress, reaction, and well-being even while making adjustments as necessary.
