Physical Therapist Assistant Career Summary

Search PTA Jobs in New Jersey

PTAs conduct their tasks beneath the supervision and instruction of a licensed physical therapist. Physical therapists rely a great deal on their Physical therapist assistants, therefore it is necessary that a Physical therapist assistant can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy techniques. PTAs employ lots of physical therapy techniques when looking after clients. Certain techniques consist of physical modalities, deep tissue tissue massage, exercise therapy like ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional exercises.

Furthermore PTAs usually aid their clients to avoid losing mobility by developing health and fitness workouts to create more active healthy lifestyles. When a Physical therapy assistant examines a patient for the first time, they help the PT examine the individual and develop a care plan encouraging recovered functions, the ability to move, protecting against disability and reducing suffering. Then, together as a team, the PT, PTA, and patient each work with each other to make certain the purpose of the health plan is reached, calculating client progress, healing, and safety even while making modifications as needed.
