PTs rely heavily on their Physical therapy assistants, so it is important that a Physical therapy assistant can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy workouts. PTAs employ lots of physical therapy methods when looking after patients. Some methods incorporate deep soft tissue massage, therapeutic exercise, physical modalities like ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional training.
