Physical therapy assistants conduct their jobs underneath the supervising and direction of a certified PT. PTs rely heavily on their Physical therapy assistants, so it is crucial that a Physical therapy assistant can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy exercises. Physical therapy assistants apply lots of physical therapy techniques while looking after people. Some techniques incorporate physical modalities, deep soft tissue tissue massage, exercise therapy such as ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional exercises.

Furthermore Physical therapy assistants usually assist their patients to avoid losing movement by implementing health and fitness plans to enable more active life styles. Anytime a Physical therapist assistant sees a patient initially, they help the PT examine the individual and create a treatment program encouraging repaired functions, being able to move, preventing disability and reducing suffering. Then, together as a team, the PT, PTA, and individual all work together to ensure the purpose of the health plan is reached, calculating the patient's progress, reaction, and safety even while making modifications as needed.
