PT assistants carry out their services under the supervision and instruction of a licensed PT. Physical therapists rely greatly on their PT assistants, therefore it is necessary that a Physical therapist assistant can offer patients a complete plan of physical therapy activities. PT assistants apply numerous physical therapy techniques while caring for patients. Some techniques include deep massage, therapeutic exercise, physical modalities such as for example ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional exercises.

Additionally PT assistants regularly assist their patients to prevent losing movement by creating health and fitness workouts to create more active life styles. Whenever a PTA sees a patient for the first time, they help the PT study the individual and create a therapy program encouraging repaired functionality, the ability to move, avoiding disability and pain reduction. Then, as a team, the PT, Physical therapy assistant, and individual each work together to ensure the objective of the therapy program is attained, measuring the patient's progression, reaction, and well-being while making modifications as needed.
