PTAs carry out their jobs under the supervising and direction of a licensed PT. PTs rely heavily on their PTAs, therefore it is essential that a PTA can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy techniques. PTAs apply many physical therapy methods when helping patients. Some techniques include deep massage, exercise therapy, physical modalities such as for example ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional exercises.

Additionally PTAs often assist their clients to prevent losing movement by creating health and physical fitness programs for more active healthy lifestyles. When a Physical therapy assistant sees a client initially, the PTA helps the physical therapist study the individual and create a therapy program supporting restored functions, being able to move, protecting against impairment and reducing pain. Then, together as a team, the PT, Physical therapy assistant, and individual all work together to make sure the purpose of the health program is achieved, measuring client progression, response, and safety even while making modifications as needed.
