PT assistants carry out their tasks under the supervising and instruction of a certified PT. Physical therapists rely heavily on their Physical therapist assistants, so it is crucial that a Physical therapist assistant can offer patients a complete plan of physical therapy techniques. PT assistants apply many physical therapy techniques while helping people. Several techniques include deep soft tissue massage, therapeutic exercise, physical modalities such as for instance ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional training.

In addition Physical therapist assistants frequently aid their patients to avoid losing movement by employing health and fitness routines for more active healthier lifestyles. When a Physical therapist assistant sees an individual initially, the PTA helps the physical therapist study the individual and create a therapy plan supporting restored functionality, being able to move, avoiding impairment and reducing pain. Then, together, the physical therapist, Physical therapy assistant, and patient each work together to make sure the goal of the therapy plan is achieved, measuring patient progress, reaction, and safety even while making modifications as necessary.
