Physical therapy assistants conduct their functions underneath the guidance and instruction of a certified PT. PTs rely heavily on their PT assistants, so it is essential that a Physical therapy assistant can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy practices. PTAs apply numerous physical therapy techniques while looking after clients. Some techniques incorporate physical modalities, deep tissue tissue massage, therapeutic exercise such as for example ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional training.

Additionally PT assistants commonly aid their clients to avoid losing movement by applying wellness and fitness programs for more active healthy life styles. Anytime a PTA sees a patient first, they help the PT study the individual and develop a therapy plan supporting recovered functionality, being able to move, protecting against disability and pain reduction. Then, together, the physical therapist, PTA, and client all work with each other to ensure the objective of the health program is achieved, calculating the patient's progress, healing, and safety even while making modifications as required.
