PT assistants conduct their jobs under the guidance and instruction of a certified PT. Physical therapists rely heavily on their PTAs, so it's crucial that a Physical therapist assistant can offer patients a complete plan of physical therapy activities. PTAs apply lots of physical therapy techniques while caring for clients. Several methods include physical modalities, deep soft tissue massage, therapeutic exercise particularly ultrasound and electrotherapy as well as functional exercises.
