Physical therapist assistants carry out their functions under the supervising and instruction of a licensed PT. Physical therapists rely a great deal on their PT assistants, so it is necessary that a Physical therapist assistant can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy exercises. PTAs employ numerous physical therapy methods when caring for patients. Some methods incorporate physical modalities, deep tissue tissue massage, therapeutic exercise such as for instance ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional exercises.

Additionally PTAs often assist their patients to avoid losing movement by developing wellness and physical fitness programs to enable more active healthier lifestyles. Whenever a Physical therapist assistant sees a client for the 1st time, the PTA helps the PT examine the individual and develop a therapy plan promoting repaired functions, the ability to move, protecting against impairment and reducing discomfort. Then, together as a team, the physical therapist, Physical therapy assistant, and patient all work together to make sure the goal of the health plan is attained, measuring client progress, response, and safety while making adjustments as necessary.
