Physical therapist assistants carry out their jobs under the supervision and direction of a licensed PT. PTs rely greatly on their Physical therapist assistants, therefore it is essential that a Physical therapy assistant can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy practices. PT assistants employ numerous physical therapy methods when taking care of patients. Some methods consist of physical modalities, deep soft tissue tissue massage, exercise therapy such as for example ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional training.

In addition Physical therapy assistants usually aid their patients to prevent losing mobility by applying health and fitness programs to enable more active healthier life styles. When a Physical therapy assistant examines a patient first, the PTA helps the physical therapist analyze the individual and create a therapy program promoting repaired functionality, being able to move, avoiding impairment and reducing suffering. Then, as a team, the physical therapist, PTA, and client each work together to make sure the purpose of the therapy plan is achieved, measuring the patient's progress, response, and well-being even while making modifications as required.
