Search PTA Jobs in Tennessee

PTAs conduct their services underneath the supervising and instruction of a licensed PT. PTs rely heavily on their Physical therapy assistants, so it is important that a Physical therapy assistant can offer clients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy activities. Physical therapy assistants employ many physical therapy techniques when looking after patients. Several techniques incorporate physical modalities, deep tissue massage, exercise therapy such as for instance ultrasound and electrotherapy as well as functional exercises.

In addition PTAs frequently assist their patients to avoid losing movement by establishing health and physical fitness programs to enable more active lifestyles. When a Physical therapy assistant sees a client first, they help the PT examine the individual and create a therapy plan supporting repaired functions, being able to move, avoiding impairment and reducing suffering. Then, together as a team, the physical therapist, PTA, and client each work together to ensure the purpose of the health program is reached, measuring the patient's progress, healing, and safety while making modifications as needed.
