Physical therapy assistants perform their functions under the guidance and instruction of a licensed PT. PTs rely heavily on their Physical therapist assistants, so it is important that a Physical therapist assistant can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy exercises. Physical therapy assistants apply numerous physical therapy methods while caring for people. Certain techniques incorporate deep tissue massage, exercise therapy, physical modalities such as ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional exercises.

Furthermore Physical therapy assistants usually aid their clients to avoid losing mobility by developing wellness and fitness routines to ensure more active lifestyles. Whenever a Physical therapy assistant examines a client initially, they help the physical therapist examine the person and develop a care plan encouraging repaired usability, being able to move, preventing disability and reducing suffering. Then, together as a team, the PT, Physical therapy assistant, and client all work together to make sure the goals of the health plan is achieved, calculating client progress, healing, and safety even while making modifications as required.
