PT assistants perform their tasks under the supervising and instruction of a licensed physical therapist. PTs rely greatly on their Physical therapist assistants, so it is crucial that a Physical therapist assistant can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy workouts. Physical therapist assistants employ many physical therapy methods when caring for people. Certain techniques include deep massage, exercise therapy, physical modalities such as ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional exercises.

Furthermore Physical therapist assistants usually assist their clients to avoid losing movement by implementing wellness and fitness routines for more active lifestyles. Whenever a Physical therapy assistant examines an individual first, the PTA helps the PT analyze the person and develop a treatment program supporting restored functions, being able to move, preventing impairment and reducing discomfort. Then, together as a team, the PT, Physical therapy assistant, and individual each work with each other to make sure the goal of the therapy plan is reached, calculating the patient's progress, response, and well-being even while making adjustments as required.
