PTAs conduct their functions beneath the supervising and direction of a certified PT. Physical therapists rely greatly on their Physical therapist assistants, so it's important that a Physical therapist assistant can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy techniques. Physical therapist assistants employ many physical therapy methods when helping patients. Some methods consist of physical modalities, deep tissue massage, therapeutic exercise such as for example ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional exercises.

In addition Physical therapist assistants often assist their patients to avoid losing movement by applying health and fitness routines to enable more active healthier life styles. Anytime a Physical therapist assistant sees a client initially, they help the PT analyze the person and create a treatment plan supporting recovered functionality, the ability to move, avoiding impairment and pain reduction. Then, as a team, the physical therapist, PTA, and individual each work collectively to make certain the goal of the therapy plan is achieved, measuring client progression, response, and safety while making adjustments as needed.
