PT assistants conduct their jobs under the guidance and direction of a licensed PT. PTs rely greatly on their PT assistants, therefore it is essential that a PTA can offer patients a complete plan of physical therapy practices. Physical therapy assistants apply lots of physical therapy methods while caring for people. A few methods incorporate physical modalities, deep tissue tissue massage, therapeutic exercise like ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional exercises.

Furthermore Physical therapy assistants frequently aid their clients to prevent losing mobility by creating health and fitness plans to facilitate more active healthier lifestyles. Whenever a Physical therapy assistant examines an individual first, they help the physical therapist examine the person and create a therapy program supporting recovered functionality, being able to move, preventing impairment and pain reduction. Then, together, the PT, Physical therapy assistant, and client each work together to make certain the goal of the therapy program is reached, measuring client progress, reaction, and well-being while making adjustments as required.
