Physical therapy assistants conduct their tasks underneath the supervising and direction of a certified physical therapist. Physical therapists rely a great deal on their PTAs, so it's important that a PTA can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy practices. PTAs employ numerous physical therapy techniques while helping people. A few methods incorporate physical modalities, deep soft tissue tissue massage, exercise therapy like ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional training.

In addition PT assistants frequently aid their patients to avoid losing movement by creating wellness and physical fitness programs for more active healthy lifestyles. Whenever a Physical therapy assistant sees an individual initially, they help the PT analyze the individual and develop a care plan encouraging recovered usability, being able to move, protecting against disability and pain reduction. Then, together as a team, the PT, PTA, and individual all work together to make sure the purpose of the health plan is attained, measuring patient progression, response, and well-being while making modifications as needed.
