Physical therapy assistants conduct their services under the guidance and instruction of a certified physical therapist. Physical therapists rely primarily on their PTAs, so it is necessary that a Physical therapy assistant can offer patients a complete plan of physical therapy techniques. Physical therapist assistants employ many physical therapy methods while helping people. Some techniques consist of physical modalities, deep tissue massage, therapeutic exercise particularly ultrasound and electrotherapy as well as functional training.

Furthermore Physical therapist assistants commonly assist their patients to prevent losing mobility by implementing health and fitness programs to ensure more active healthier life styles. Anytime a Physical therapist assistant examines an individual first, they help the PT analyze the individual and develop a treatment program supporting restored usability, being able to move, preventing impairment and pain reduction. Then, as a team, the PT, PTA, and client each work together to make certain the objective of the therapy program is attained, measuring client progress, response, and well-being while making modifications as needed.
