Physical therapist assistants conduct their tasks under the supervision and instruction of a certified physical therapist. PTs rely primarily on their PTAs, so it is necessary that a Physical therapist assistant can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy workouts. PTAs apply numerous physical therapy techniques when taking care of people. Some techniques include deep soft tissue massage, therapeutic exercise, physical modalities particularly ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional exercises.

In addition Physical therapy assistants commonly assist their patients to prevent losing movement by applying health and fitness routines to enable more active healthy life styles. When a PTA examines a patient for the 1st time, they help the physical therapist analyze the individual and develop a treatment plan promoting recovered functions, being able to move, avoiding disability and pain reduction. Then, together as a team, the PT, Physical therapy assistant, and patient each work with each other to make certain the purpose of the health plan is reached, calculating the patient's progress, healing, and well-being while making modifications as necessary.
