Physical therapist assistants perform their jobs under the supervision and direction of a licensed PT. PTs rely heavily on their PT assistants, so it's important that a Physical therapist assistant can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy workouts. PTAs apply many physical therapy methods when caring for people. Some techniques include physical modalities, deep tissue tissue massage, therapeutic exercise like ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional training.

Additionally PTAs often aid their patients to prevent losing mobility by establishing wellness and fitness workouts to enable more active healthy lifestyles. Anytime a PTA examines a patient initially, they help the physical therapist examine the individual and create a treatment plan encouraging repaired functions, being able to move, protecting against disability and pain reduction. Then, together, the physical therapist, PTA, and client all work together to ensure the purpose of the therapy program is reached, measuring client progression, response, and well-being while making modifications as needed.
