Physical therapist assistants conduct their functions under the supervision and instruction of a licensed PT. PTs rely greatly on their Physical therapist assistants, so it is important that a Physical therapy assistant can offer clients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy activities. PTAs apply numerous physical therapy methods when taking care of people. Several methods consist of deep soft tissue massage, exercise therapy, physical modalities like ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional training.

Additionally PTAs commonly assist their patients to prevent losing movement by employing health and fitness programs to ensure more active life styles. Anytime a Physical therapist assistant examines a patient initially, they help the physical therapist study the individual and develop a care program encouraging recovered functions, being able to move, avoiding disability and pain reduction. Then, together as a team, the PT, Physical therapist assistant, and patient each work with each other to make certain the goals of the health program is achieved, measuring patient progression, reaction, and well-being while making adjustments as necessary.
