PTAs perform their tasks under the guidance and direction of a licensed PT. PTs rely greatly on their PTAs, so it is necessary that a PTA can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy practices. PT assistants apply lots of physical therapy methods while caring for people. A few techniques include deep tissue massage, therapeutic exercise, physical modalities like ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional training.

In addition PTAs frequently assist their patients to avoid losing movement by applying health and physical fitness workouts for more active healthy lifestyles. Anytime a Physical therapy assistant sees a patient for the first time, the PTA helps the physical therapist analyze the person and develop a therapy program promoting repaired functionality, being able to move, avoiding disability and pain reduction. Then, as a team, the physical therapist, Physical therapy assistant, and individual all work with each other to ensure the objective of the health plan is reached, measuring patient progress, response, and well-being while making modifications as needed.
