PTAs carry out their services under the supervision and instruction of a licensed physical therapist. PTs rely heavily on their Physical therapy assistants, therefore it is crucial that a PTA can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy activities. PT assistants employ lots of physical therapy techniques while helping patients. A few techniques consist of physical modalities, deep soft tissue massage, therapeutic exercise particularly ultrasound and electrotherapy as well as functional exercises.

In addition Physical therapy assistants frequently aid their clients to prevent losing movement by applying health and physical fitness programs for more active healthier life styles. When a Physical therapy assistant sees a client for the first time, the PTA helps the PT study the person and create a treatment program promoting recovered functions, the ability to move, preventing disability and pain reduction. Then, together as a team, the physical therapist, Physical therapist assistant, and patient each work collectively to make certain the objective of the therapy program is attained, calculating client progression, reaction, and safety even while making modifications as necessary.
