Physical therapist assistants conduct their jobs underneath the guidance and instruction of a certified physical therapist. Physical therapists rely greatly on their PT assistants, so it's important that a Physical therapy assistant can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy workouts. PTAs apply lots of physical therapy methods while looking after patients. Several techniques include physical modalities, deep soft tissue tissue massage, therapeutic exercise such as ultrasound and electrotherapy as well as functional training.

In addition Physical therapy assistants regularly aid their patients to avoid losing movement by employing wellness and fitness programs to facilitate more active healthy life styles. When a Physical therapist assistant sees a patient initially, the PTA helps the PT study the person and create a treatment plan supporting repaired usability, the ability to move, avoiding impairment and pain reduction. Then, together, the physical therapist, Physical therapist assistant, and patient each work with each other to make sure the objective of the therapy program is reached, measuring the patient's progression, response, and well-being even while making adjustments as necessary.
