Physical therapy assistants carry out their tasks beneath the supervision and instruction of a certified physical therapist. PTs rely a great deal on their Physical therapist assistants, so it's essential that a Physical therapist assistant can offer clients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy activities. PTAs apply numerous physical therapy methods when caring for people. Some techniques consist of physical modalities, deep tissue tissue massage, therapeutic exercise such as ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional exercises.

Additionally Physical therapist assistants usually assist their patients to avoid losing movement by implementing health and fitness plans to ensure more active healthier lifestyles. Anytime a Physical therapist assistant sees a patient for the first time, the PTA helps the PT analyze the person and create a treatment plan supporting repaired functionality, being able to move, preventing impairment and pain reduction. Then, together as a team, the physical therapist, Physical therapy assistant, and patient all work collectively to make sure the goal of the therapy plan is attained, calculating the patient's progression, healing, and well-being even while making adjustments as necessary.
