Physical therapist assistants conduct their jobs beneath the guidance and instruction of a licensed PT. PTs rely a great deal on their Physical therapy assistants, so it's important that a PTA can offer patients a complete plan of physical therapy techniques. PTAs apply numerous physical therapy techniques when helping people. Several methods include deep soft tissue massage, exercise therapy, physical modalities such as for example ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional exercises.

Furthermore PT assistants frequently assist their patients to prevent losing mobility by employing wellness and physical fitness programs for more active lifestyles.
