Physical therapy assistants carry out their jobs underneath the supervision and instruction of a licensed physical therapist. Physical therapists rely a great deal on their Physical therapist assistants, so it's necessary that a PTA can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy techniques. PTAs apply many physical therapy methods when taking care of clients. Some techniques incorporate deep soft tissue massage, exercise therapy, physical modalities such as ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional exercises.

Additionally Physical therapy assistants frequently assist their patients to avoid losing mobility by employing wellness and fitness programs to ensure more active life styles. Anytime a Physical therapist assistant sees a patient initially, the PTA helps the physical therapist study the individual and create a therapy program promoting restored functions, being able to move, avoiding disability and reducing pain. Then, as a team, the physical therapist, PTA, and client each work together to make certain the purpose of the health plan is achieved, calculating the patient's progression, response, and well-being while making adjustments as necessary.
