Physical therapy assistants perform their jobs under the guidance and direction of a licensed PT. Physical therapists rely a great deal on their Physical therapist assistants, therefore it is necessary that a Physical therapist assistant can offer patients a complete plan of physical therapy practices. Physical therapy assistants employ lots of physical therapy techniques when taking care of patients. Some methods incorporate physical modalities, deep tissue tissue massage, therapeutic exercise particularly ultrasound and electrotherapy as well as functional exercises.

In addition Physical therapy assistants often aid their patients to prevent losing movement by creating health and fitness workouts to enable more active healthier life styles. Anytime a Physical therapist assistant examines a client for the first time, they help the PT analyze the person and create a treatment plan promoting restored functionality, the ability to move, protecting against impairment and pain reduction. Then, together as a team, the PT, Physical therapist assistant, and client all work with each other to make sure the objective of the health program is attained, measuring the patient's progress, healing, and well-being while making adjustments as needed.
