Physical Therapist Assistant Job Description

Search PTA Jobs in Texas

Physical therapy assistants conduct their jobs beneath the supervising and direction of a certified physical therapist. Physical therapists rely greatly on their PT assistants, therefore it is necessary that a PTA can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy workouts. Physical therapist assistants apply many physical therapy methods while caring for people. Certain techniques include physical modalities, deep tissue tissue massage, therapeutic exercise like ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional training.

Additionally PTAs regularly assist their patients to avoid losing mobility by applying health and fitness programs to create more active healthy life styles. When a Physical therapy assistant sees an individual for the 1st time, they help the PT examine the individual and create a care program promoting restored functions, being able to move, preventing disability and pain reduction. Then, together as a team, the physical therapist, PTA, and patient each work together to ensure the goal of the therapy program is reached, measuring the patient's progression, reaction, and safety even while making adjustments as needed.
