PT assistants carry out their jobs under the guidance and instruction of a certified PT. PTs rely a great deal on their Physical therapist assistants, therefore it is important that a PTA can offer patients a complete plan of physical therapy exercises. Physical therapist assistants employ lots of physical therapy methods while caring for clients. Certain techniques include physical modalities, deep tissue tissue massage, therapeutic exercise such as for example ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional exercises.

In addition PTAs often aid their clients to prevent losing movement by implementing health and physical fitness workouts to facilitate more active healthier lifestyles. Anytime a Physical therapy assistant examines a patient for the first time, they help the PT study the person and develop a therapy plan promoting restored functionality, being able to move, protecting against disability and reducing discomfort. Then, together as a team, the physical therapist, Physical therapist assistant, and individual all work with each other to ensure the goal of the therapy plan is achieved, calculating client progression, response, and well-being even while making adjustments as necessary.
