Physical therapy assistants conduct their jobs beneath the guidance and direction of a certified PT. PTs rely heavily on their Physical therapy assistants, so it's necessary that a Physical therapy assistant can offer patients a complete plan of physical therapy workouts. PTAs employ lots of physical therapy methods when looking after people. A few techniques include deep massage, exercise therapy, physical modalities particularly ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional exercises.

In addition Physical therapy assistants frequently assist their clients to avoid losing mobility by employing wellness and physical fitness routines for more active healthier life styles. Whenever a Physical therapist assistant examines an individual first, the PTA helps the PT examine the individual and develop a care program promoting restored functions, the ability to move, avoiding impairment and reducing suffering. Then, together as a team, the PT, Physical therapy assistant, and client all work together to make certain the objective of the therapy program is achieved, calculating patient progression, response, and well-being even while making modifications as necessary.
