Physical therapy assistants perform their services underneath the supervision and direction of a licensed physical therapist. PTs rely a great deal on their Physical therapy assistants, so it is important that a PTA can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy workouts. PT assistants employ numerous physical therapy techniques while helping people. Some techniques incorporate physical modalities, deep soft tissue tissue massage, exercise therapy such as for instance ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional exercises.

Furthermore PT assistants usually assist their patients to avoid losing movement by establishing health and physical fitness programs to ensure more active healthy life styles. When a PTA examines a patient for the 1st time, they help the physical therapist study the individual and create a therapy program encouraging recovered functionality, being able to move, protecting against impairment and reducing suffering. Then, together, the PT, Physical therapist assistant, and individual all work with each other to make sure the purpose of the health plan is achieved, calculating the patient's progress, response, and well-being even while making adjustments as necessary.
