Physical therapy assistants carry out their functions under the supervision and direction of a licensed physical therapist. Physical therapists rely greatly on their PTAs, therefore it is necessary that a PTA can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy workouts. PT assistants employ many physical therapy techniques while caring for patients. Several methods incorporate physical modalities, deep soft tissue tissue massage, therapeutic exercise particularly ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional training.

In addition PT assistants often assist their patients to avoid losing mobility by developing wellness and fitness routines to facilitate more active healthier lifestyles. When a Physical therapist assistant sees an individual first, the PTA helps the PT examine the individual and develop a care plan encouraging repaired functionality, the ability to move, preventing disability and pain reduction. Then, together as a team, the physical therapist, Physical therapist assistant, and client all work together to make sure the purpose of the therapy plan is attained, measuring patient progress, healing, and well-being even while making modifications as needed.
