Physical Therapy Assistant Job Introduction

Search PTA Jobs in Arizona

Physical therapy assistants perform their jobs beneath the supervising and direction of a licensed physical therapist. Physical therapists rely a great deal on their Physical therapist assistants, therefore it is crucial that a Physical therapist assistant can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy activities. PT assistants employ numerous physical therapy methods while caring for patients. Certain techniques incorporate physical modalities, deep tissue massage, exercise therapy like ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional training.

In addition PTAs often assist their patients to avoid losing movement by establishing wellness and physical fitness programs to enable more active healthy lifestyles. Whenever a PTA sees a client initially, they help the physical therapist study the individual and create a therapy plan encouraging recovered functionality, the ability to move, preventing impairment and pain reduction. Then, together as a team, the PT, PTA, and client all work together to make sure the goal of the health plan is reached, calculating the patient's progression, reaction, and safety while making adjustments as needed.
