Physical therapy assistants carry out their tasks underneath the supervision and direction of a certified physical therapist. PTs rely heavily on their Physical therapy assistants, so it's crucial that a Physical therapist assistant can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy techniques. Physical therapist assistants employ numerous physical therapy methods when looking after clients. A few techniques consist of deep tissue massage, therapeutic exercise, physical modalities such as ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional exercises.

Additionally PT assistants often assist their patients to prevent losing movement by creating health and fitness workouts to create more active life styles. When a PTA examines an individual first, the PTA helps the physical therapist examine the individual and create a treatment plan supporting restored functions, the ability to move, avoiding impairment and reducing discomfort. Then, as a team, the physical therapist, PTA, and patient each work with each other to ensure the goal of the health plan is attained, measuring client progression, reaction, and safety even while making adjustments as needed.
