Physical therapist assistants carry out their jobs under the supervision and direction of a certified physical therapist. PTs rely heavily on their Physical therapy assistants, therefore it is crucial that a Physical therapist assistant can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy practices. Physical therapy assistants employ lots of physical therapy methods when looking after people. Certain techniques consist of deep massage, exercise therapy, physical modalities such as for example ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional exercises.

Additionally Physical therapist assistants frequently assist their clients to avoid losing mobility by establishing wellness and physical fitness programs to enable more active healthy life styles. Whenever a Physical therapist assistant examines a patient for the first time, they help the physical therapist examine the person and create a therapy program encouraging recovered usability, the ability to move, avoiding impairment and reducing pain. Then, as a team, the PT, Physical therapist assistant, and patient all work collectively to ensure the objective of the therapy plan is attained, calculating client progression, response, and safety while making modifications as necessary.
