PT assistants conduct their services beneath the guidance and instruction of a licensed physical therapist. Physical therapists rely a great deal on their PT assistants, so it is necessary that a PTA can offer clients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy workouts. Physical therapy assistants apply many physical therapy methods when taking care of patients. Certain techniques incorporate deep tissue massage, exercise therapy, physical modalities such as ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional training.

In addition Physical therapy assistants often assist their patients to prevent losing movement by implementing wellness and physical fitness routines to create more active lifestyles. Anytime a Physical therapist assistant examines a client first, they help the physical therapist study the individual and develop a therapy program encouraging restored functions, being able to move, preventing disability and pain reduction. Then, as a team, the physical therapist, PTA, and patient all work collectively to ensure the purpose of the health program is attained, calculating patient progression, reaction, and safety even while making modifications as required.
