Physical therapist assistants conduct their functions beneath the supervision and direction of a licensed physical therapist. PTs rely a great deal on their Physical therapy assistants, so it's necessary that a PTA can offer clients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy activities. PTAs employ many physical therapy techniques when taking care of clients. A few methods incorporate deep massage, therapeutic exercise, physical modalities like ultrasound and electrotherapy as well as functional exercises.

In addition PT assistants commonly assist their patients to avoid losing movement by creating wellness and fitness plans to facilitate more active lifestyles. Whenever a Physical therapist assistant examines an individual first, the PTA helps the physical therapist study the person and develop a treatment program encouraging restored usability, the ability to move, protecting against impairment and pain reduction. Then, together, the PT, Physical therapist assistant, and individual each work together to ensure the goal of the health plan is reached, calculating client progression, healing, and safety even while making adjustments as needed.
