Physical therapist assistants perform their functions under the guidance and instruction of a licensed PT. Physical therapists rely primarily on their Physical therapy assistants, therefore it is important that a Physical therapist assistant can offer clients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy techniques. PT assistants employ many physical therapy techniques when taking care of clients. Several methods consist of deep tissue massage, therapeutic exercise, physical modalities particularly ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional training.

Additionally Physical therapy assistants frequently aid their clients to avoid losing movement by employing wellness and physical fitness routines for more active lifestyles. Anytime a Physical therapist assistant examines an individual for the 1st time, the PTA helps the PT analyze the individual and create a treatment program promoting restored functions, the ability to move, preventing disability and reducing suffering. Then, as a team, the physical therapist, PTA, and patient all work together to make certain the objective of the therapy plan is attained, measuring patient progress, healing, and well-being even while making modifications as necessary.
