Physical Therapist Assistant and Aide Job Descriptions

Physical therapy assistants conduct their tasks under the supervising and direction of a certified PT. Physical therapists rely heavily on their PT assistants, therefore it is important that a Physical therapist assistant can offer clients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy techniques. Physical therapy assistants apply numerous physical therapy techniques while helping people. Certain methods consist of physical modalities, deep soft tissue massage, therapeutic exercise particularly ultrasound and electrotherapy as well as functional training.

Furthermore PTAs often assist their clients to avoid losing movement by applying wellness and physical fitness workouts for more active healthy lifestyles. When a PTA examines a patient first, the PTA helps the PT examine the individual and develop a therapy program promoting repaired functionality, the ability to move, preventing disability and reducing suffering. Then, together as a team, the physical therapist, Physical therapy assistant, and client each work collectively to make certain the objective of the therapy program is attained, measuring patient progression, response, and safety while making modifications as necessary.
