Physical therapy assistants conduct their functions underneath the guidance and direction of a certified physical therapist. PTs rely heavily on their PTAs, so it is necessary that a Physical therapy assistant can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy activities. Physical therapist assistants employ many physical therapy methods when looking after clients. Several techniques incorporate deep soft tissue massage, therapeutic exercise, physical modalities such as for instance ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional training.

Additionally PTAs regularly aid their clients to avoid losing mobility by establishing health and fitness programs to create more active healthier life styles. When a PTA sees a patient for the 1st time, the PTA helps the PT analyze the person and develop a therapy plan encouraging repaired functionality, being able to move, avoiding disability and pain reduction. Then, together, the PT, Physical therapy assistant, and patient each work with each other to ensure the purpose of the health program is attained, measuring client progression, response, and well-being while making modifications as needed.
