Physical Therapist Assistant Job Overview

Search PTA Jobs in Connecticut

Physical therapy assistants conduct their jobs under the supervision and direction of a certified physical therapist. PTs rely heavily on their PTAs, therefore it is crucial that a Physical therapy assistant can offer patients a complete plan of physical therapy workouts. Physical therapy assistants apply many physical therapy techniques when taking care of clients. Certain methods consist of deep soft tissue massage, therapeutic exercise, physical modalities such as for example ultrasound and electrotherapy as well as functional training.

Additionally PT assistants regularly assist their patients to avoid losing mobility by implementing wellness and fitness workouts for more active healthier life styles. When a Physical therapy assistant examines a patient for the first time, the PTA helps the physical therapist analyze the person and develop a care plan encouraging restored functionality, the ability to move, avoiding impairment and reducing pain. Then, as a team, the physical therapist, Physical therapy assistant, and individual all work collectively to make certain the objective of the therapy plan is achieved, calculating client progress, reaction, and well-being while making modifications as needed.
