Physical therapist assistants perform their services underneath the supervision and instruction of a licensed physical therapist. Physical therapists rely heavily on their Physical therapy assistants, therefore it is necessary that a Physical therapy assistant can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy workouts. PTAs employ numerous physical therapy methods when looking after patients. Some techniques consist of deep massage, exercise therapy, physical modalities such as for example ultrasound and electrotherapy as well as functional exercises.

In addition Physical therapy assistants commonly assist their clients to avoid losing mobility by establishing wellness and fitness workouts to enable more active life styles. When a Physical therapy assistant sees a patient for the first time, they help the PT study the individual and develop a care plan supporting recovered usability, the ability to move, avoiding impairment and pain reduction. Then, together, the physical therapist, Physical therapy assistant, and individual all work together to ensure the goal of the therapy program is achieved, measuring patient progression, response, and well-being while making modifications as needed.
