Physical Therapist Assistant Job Introduction

Search PTA Jobs in Illinois

Physical therapist assistants carry out their functions beneath the supervision and direction of a licensed physical therapist. Physical therapists rely heavily on their PTAs, so it's crucial that a Physical therapist assistant can offer patients a complete plan of physical therapy workouts. Physical therapy assistants apply many physical therapy methods while caring for patients. Some techniques incorporate deep massage, therapeutic exercise, physical modalities such as ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional exercises.

Additionally PTAs regularly assist their clients to avoid losing movement by implementing health and physical fitness programs to facilitate more active life styles. Anytime a PTA examines an individual initially, the PTA helps the PT examine the person and create a treatment program encouraging repaired functionality, being able to move, avoiding impairment and reducing discomfort. Then, together as a team, the physical therapist, PTA, and client all work collectively to ensure the objective of the health program is achieved, calculating the patient's progression, reaction, and safety while making adjustments as necessary.
