PT assistants carry out their services beneath the guidance and direction of a licensed PT. PTs rely heavily on their PTAs, therefore it is important that a Physical therapy assistant can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy exercises. PT assistants apply lots of physical therapy methods when caring for people. A few methods incorporate deep soft tissue massage, exercise therapy, physical modalities such as for instance ultrasound and electrotherapy as well as functional training.

Furthermore PT assistants frequently assist their patients to prevent losing movement by developing wellness and physical fitness plans for more active life styles. Whenever a PTA examines a client first, the PTA helps the PT analyze the person and create a care program encouraging repaired functionality, the ability to move, avoiding impairment and reducing discomfort. Then, together, the PT, Physical therapist assistant, and patient all work collectively to make certain the goals of the health program is achieved, calculating the patient's progression, response, and well-being even while making adjustments as needed.
