PTAs perform their services under the supervising and instruction of a licensed physical therapist. PTs rely primarily on their Physical therapist assistants, so it's necessary that a PTA can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy workouts. PT assistants apply many physical therapy methods when looking after patients. Several techniques consist of physical modalities, deep soft tissue tissue massage, therapeutic exercise such as for example ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional exercises.

Furthermore PTAs commonly assist their clients to prevent losing mobility by developing health and physical fitness workouts to facilitate more active healthier life styles. Whenever a Physical therapy assistant sees a patient initially, they help the PT study the individual and create a care program encouraging restored functions, the ability to move, preventing disability and reducing suffering. Then, as a team, the PT, Physical therapist assistant, and client all work with each other to make certain the goal of the health plan is attained, measuring the patient's progress, response, and well-being even while making adjustments as needed.
