Physical therapy assistants conduct their tasks beneath the supervising and instruction of a licensed physical therapist. Physical therapists rely primarily on their PT assistants, therefore it is important that a Physical therapy assistant can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy exercises. PTAs apply many physical therapy techniques while helping patients. Some techniques include deep tissue massage, exercise therapy, physical modalities such as ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional training.

In addition PT assistants frequently aid their patients to prevent losing movement by creating wellness and fitness workouts to enable more active healthier lifestyles. Anytime a Physical therapy assistant sees a patient first, they help the PT examine the person and create a care plan supporting restored functionality, the ability to move, protecting against impairment and reducing suffering. Then, together, the PT, PTA, and patient all work together to make certain the goals of the health program is reached, calculating client progression, response, and well-being while making adjustments as required.
