Physical Therapist Assistant Job Summary

Physical therapy assistants conduct their services under the guidance and direction of a licensed PT. Physical therapists rely a great deal on their PTAs, therefore it is necessary that a PTA can offer clients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy techniques. PTAs employ many physical therapy methods while helping patients. Several techniques consist of deep massage, therapeutic exercise, physical modalities such as for instance ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional exercises.

Furthermore PT assistants regularly aid their patients to prevent losing mobility by developing health and physical fitness plans for more active healthy life styles. Anytime a Physical therapy assistant sees a patient for the first time, they help the PT study the individual and develop a treatment plan supporting repaired usability, being able to move, preventing disability and reducing discomfort. Then, together, the PT, PTA, and client all work together to ensure the goal of the health plan is achieved, calculating patient progression, response, and well-being even while making modifications as necessary.
