Physical therapy assistants conduct their services under the supervising and instruction of a certified PT. Physical therapists rely heavily on their Physical therapist assistants, so it is essential that a PTA can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy exercises. Physical therapist assistants employ lots of physical therapy methods while caring for clients. A few techniques incorporate deep massage, therapeutic exercise, physical modalities such as ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional training.

In addition PTAs commonly assist their clients to avoid losing movement by applying health and fitness routines to enable more active healthy lifestyles. Whenever a Physical therapy assistant examines an individual initially, they help the physical therapist examine the person and create a care program supporting repaired functions, being able to move, preventing disability and reducing pain. Then, together as a team, the PT, PTA, and individual all work with each other to ensure the objective of the therapy program is reached, calculating client progress, response, and safety even while making adjustments as needed.
