Physical therapist assistants conduct their services under the supervising and instruction of a licensed physical therapist. Physical therapists rely heavily on their Physical therapist assistants, so it's necessary that a PTA can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy exercises. PT assistants apply many physical therapy methods when helping clients. A few methods include deep tissue massage, exercise therapy, physical modalities particularly ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional training.

In addition Physical therapist assistants often aid their patients to avoid losing movement by implementing health and fitness workouts to create more active healthy lifestyles. Anytime a Physical therapist assistant examines an individual initially, they help the physical therapist analyze the person and develop a therapy plan promoting recovered usability, the ability to move, avoiding disability and pain reduction. Then, together, the PT, PTA, and patient all work collectively to ensure the purpose of the health plan is achieved, measuring the patient's progress, healing, and well-being while making modifications as needed.
