PT assistants perform their functions beneath the guidance and direction of a licensed PT. PTs rely heavily on their PTAs, so it is important that a PTA can offer clients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy techniques. Physical therapy assistants employ lots of physical therapy techniques when caring for people. Some techniques incorporate deep soft tissue massage, therapeutic exercise, physical modalities such as for example ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional training.

Furthermore Physical therapist assistants often aid their clients to prevent losing mobility by applying health and physical fitness programs for more active healthier life styles. When a Physical therapist assistant examines a client first, the PTA helps the PT examine the person and develop a care program promoting restored functions, the ability to move, preventing impairment and reducing discomfort. Then, together, the PT, Physical therapist assistant, and patient all work together to make certain the goals of the health program is achieved, measuring client progress, reaction, and well-being even while making adjustments as required.
