PTAs carry out their jobs under the guidance and direction of a certified PT. Physical therapists rely heavily on their PTAs, so it's crucial that a Physical therapy assistant can offer patients a complete plan of physical therapy practices. PT assistants apply lots of physical therapy methods when caring for patients. Some techniques incorporate physical modalities, deep tissue tissue massage, exercise therapy such as for example ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional training.

Furthermore Physical therapy assistants frequently assist their clients to prevent losing mobility by applying wellness and physical fitness routines to facilitate more active healthier lifestyles. When a Physical therapy assistant examines an individual first, the PTA helps the PT study the individual and develop a treatment plan supporting restored usability, the ability to move, avoiding impairment and pain reduction. Then, together as a team, the PT, Physical therapist assistant, and client each work together to make certain the goals of the health program is achieved, measuring client progression, healing, and well-being even while making modifications as required.
