Physical therapist assistants perform their tasks under the guidance and instruction of a licensed PT. PTs rely primarily on their Physical therapist assistants, therefore it is crucial that a Physical therapist assistant can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy exercises. PTAs apply numerous physical therapy techniques when looking after people. A few techniques include deep soft tissue massage, exercise therapy, physical modalities like ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional training.

Additionally PTAs usually aid their clients to prevent losing mobility by employing health and physical fitness programs to facilitate more active healthier lifestyles. When a PTA sees a client first, they help the physical therapist examine the person and develop a therapy program supporting recovered functionality, being able to move, preventing disability and reducing pain. Then, together as a team, the PT, Physical therapist assistant, and individual each work collectively to ensure the goals of the therapy plan is achieved, calculating patient progress, healing, and well-being while making modifications as necessary.
