Physical therapy assistants perform their functions under the guidance and direction of a certified PT. Physical therapists rely heavily on their PT assistants, so it is crucial that a Physical therapist assistant can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy exercises. PTAs apply numerous physical therapy techniques when taking care of patients. A few methods include deep massage, exercise therapy, physical modalities such as for instance ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional exercises.

Furthermore PTAs frequently assist their patients to avoid losing mobility by developing wellness and physical fitness workouts to create more active healthy life styles. Whenever a Physical therapy assistant examines a client first, the PTA helps the PT analyze the person and create a care program encouraging repaired usability, being able to move, avoiding impairment and pain reduction. Then, together, the PT, Physical therapy assistant, and patient all work collectively to make sure the goal of the therapy plan is achieved, measuring patient progress, response, and safety even while making modifications as needed.
