Physical therapy assistants carry out their functions beneath the guidance and instruction of a licensed physical therapist. Physical therapists rely heavily on their PTAs, so it is necessary that a Physical therapist assistant can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy practices. PT assistants employ many physical therapy techniques when helping people. A few methods incorporate physical modalities, deep soft tissue tissue massage, therapeutic exercise like ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional exercises.

In addition Physical therapy assistants frequently assist their clients to avoid losing movement by developing wellness and physical fitness plans for more active healthy life styles. Whenever a Physical therapy assistant sees a client initially, the PTA helps the PT study the person and develop a treatment program supporting recovered functions, being able to move, avoiding disability and pain reduction. Then, together, the PT, Physical therapist assistant, and individual all work together to make certain the objective of the therapy plan is achieved, measuring the patient's progress, response, and safety while making modifications as needed.
