Physical therapy assistants carry out their jobs underneath the supervision and instruction of a certified physical therapist. PTs rely primarily on their Physical therapist assistants, therefore it is necessary that a Physical therapist assistant can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy practices. Physical therapy assistants employ numerous physical therapy methods while helping people. Some methods incorporate deep massage, exercise therapy, physical modalities such as for example ultrasound and electrotherapy as well as functional exercises.

Additionally Physical therapy assistants usually aid their clients to avoid losing mobility by applying health and physical fitness programs for more active life styles. Anytime a PTA examines a client initially, they help the physical therapist analyze the individual and develop a care plan promoting recovered usability, being able to move, avoiding impairment and pain reduction.
