Physical therapy assistants conduct their tasks under the guidance and instruction of a licensed physical therapist. PTs rely primarily on their Physical therapy assistants, therefore it is important that a Physical therapy assistant can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy activities. PTAs apply numerous physical therapy techniques when taking care of people. Some techniques consist of deep soft tissue massage, exercise therapy, physical modalities particularly ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional exercises.

In addition Physical therapy assistants regularly assist their patients to avoid losing mobility by implementing health and physical fitness workouts for more active healthier life styles. When a Physical therapist assistant sees an individual first, the PTA helps the physical therapist study the person and develop a care plan supporting recovered functionality, the ability to move, protecting against impairment and reducing pain. Then, as a team, the PT, Physical therapist assistant, and patient all work collectively to make sure the objective of the health program is reached, calculating patient progression, response, and safety while making modifications as required.
