Physical therapy assistants conduct their jobs under the supervision and instruction of a licensed physical therapist. PTs rely greatly on their Physical therapy assistants, therefore it is crucial that a PTA can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy practices. Physical therapist assistants apply many physical therapy techniques when helping patients. Several techniques incorporate deep tissue massage, exercise therapy, physical modalities such as for example ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional training.

In addition Physical therapist assistants often assist their patients to prevent losing mobility by implementing wellness and fitness plans to ensure more active healthy life styles. When a Physical therapist assistant examines a patient for the 1st time, they help the PT analyze the individual and create a therapy program encouraging restored functions, the ability to move, avoiding disability and pain reduction.
