Physical therapist assistants conduct their jobs underneath the supervising and direction of a certified physical therapist. Physical therapists rely primarily on their PTAs, so it is crucial that a Physical therapist assistant can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy workouts. PT assistants employ lots of physical therapy techniques when helping clients. Several methods incorporate deep soft tissue massage, therapeutic exercise, physical modalities particularly ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional exercises.

Furthermore PTAs commonly aid their clients to avoid losing movement by implementing health and fitness programs for more active healthier life styles. Whenever a PTA sees an individual first, they help the physical therapist examine the person and create a treatment program encouraging repaired functionality, the ability to move, avoiding impairment and reducing pain. Then, together, the PT, PTA, and patient each work together to make certain the goal of the health program is attained, measuring patient progression, healing, and well-being even while making modifications as required.
