Physical therapy assistants perform their services under the guidance and direction of a licensed PT. PTs rely greatly on their Physical therapy assistants, so it is crucial that a Physical therapy assistant can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy workouts. Physical therapy assistants apply many physical therapy methods when helping people. Several methods consist of physical modalities, deep tissue tissue massage, exercise therapy such as ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional exercises.

Furthermore Physical therapist assistants often aid their clients to prevent losing movement by developing health and physical fitness workouts to create more active healthier life styles.
