PT assistants perform their tasks underneath the supervision and instruction of a certified PT. PTs rely a great deal on their Physical therapy assistants, therefore it is important that a PTA can offer patients a complete plan of physical therapy workouts. Physical therapist assistants employ many physical therapy techniques while caring for people. A few techniques include deep massage, exercise therapy, physical modalities such as for example ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional training.

Furthermore Physical therapist assistants often assist their patients to avoid losing movement by implementing wellness and fitness workouts for more active healthy life styles. When a Physical therapist assistant examines a patient first, they help the PT analyze the individual and develop a treatment plan encouraging recovered functions, being able to move, avoiding impairment and pain reduction. Then, together, the physical therapist, Physical therapist assistant, and individual each work together to make certain the goal of the therapy plan is achieved, measuring the patient's progress, response, and safety while making adjustments as required.
