Physical therapy assistants carry out their functions beneath the supervising and direction of a certified physical therapist. Physical therapists rely heavily on their Physical therapy assistants, so it's essential that a Physical therapist assistant can offer clients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy practices. PT assistants employ numerous physical therapy methods while looking after people. Several methods consist of physical modalities, deep soft tissue tissue massage, exercise therapy particularly ultrasound and electrotherapy as well as functional exercises.

Additionally Physical therapist assistants often aid their clients to avoid losing mobility by implementing health and fitness routines to facilitate more active healthy lifestyles. When a Physical therapist assistant examines an individual initially, they help the physical therapist study the person and create a therapy plan promoting recovered functionality, being able to move, avoiding disability and pain reduction. Then, together as a team, the PT, PTA, and individual all work together to ensure the goal of the therapy plan is attained, calculating the patient's progress, reaction, and safety while making adjustments as required.
