Physical therapist assistants conduct their services under the supervising and direction of a certified PT. PTs rely a great deal on their PTAs, so it is crucial that a Physical therapy assistant can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy workouts. Physical therapist assistants apply many physical therapy methods while helping clients. Several methods include deep soft tissue massage, therapeutic exercise, physical modalities like ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional exercises.

Additionally PTAs usually aid their patients to avoid losing movement by employing health and fitness routines to enable more active healthy life styles. Anytime a PTA examines a patient first, they help the physical therapist analyze the individual and develop a therapy plan promoting recovered functions, being able to move, preventing impairment and reducing pain. Then, together, the PT, Physical therapist assistant, and individual all work with each other to make sure the goal of the health plan is attained, measuring patient progression, healing, and safety while making modifications as necessary.
