Physical therapist assistants conduct their jobs under the supervising and direction of a licensed PT. Physical therapists rely primarily on their Physical therapist assistants, so it is crucial that a Physical therapist assistant can offer patients a complete plan of physical therapy practices. PTAs employ lots of physical therapy techniques when helping clients. Several methods include physical modalities, deep tissue tissue massage, exercise therapy such as for instance ultrasound and electrotherapy as well as functional exercises.

In addition Physical therapist assistants usually assist their patients to avoid losing mobility by creating wellness and physical fitness programs to facilitate more active healthy life styles. Anytime a Physical therapy assistant sees an individual for the 1st time, the PTA helps the physical therapist examine the individual and develop a care plan supporting repaired usability, being able to move, avoiding disability and reducing discomfort. Then, together, the physical therapist, Physical therapy assistant, and client all work collectively to ensure the purpose of the therapy program is achieved, measuring patient progression, reaction, and well-being even while making adjustments as needed.
