Physical therapist assistants conduct their jobs beneath the supervising and instruction of a licensed physical therapist. PTs rely heavily on their Physical therapy assistants, so it's necessary that a PTA can offer patients a complete plan of physical therapy techniques. Physical therapist assistants employ numerous physical therapy techniques while caring for clients. Several techniques incorporate physical modalities, deep tissue tissue massage, exercise therapy such as for example ultrasound and electrotherapy as well as functional training.

Furthermore PTAs frequently assist their clients to prevent losing movement by applying wellness and fitness workouts to ensure more active healthier life styles. Anytime a Physical therapist assistant examines a client for the first time, the PTA helps the physical therapist examine the person and create a therapy program encouraging recovered functionality, being able to move, preventing impairment and reducing pain. Then, as a team, the physical therapist, PTA, and individual each work with each other to ensure the goals of the health program is achieved, measuring patient progression, response, and safety while making modifications as needed.
