PTAs perform their services under the guidance and instruction of a licensed PT. PTs rely primarily on their Physical therapist assistants, so it's necessary that a PTA can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy techniques. Physical therapist assistants apply lots of physical therapy techniques while looking after patients. Certain methods include physical modalities, deep tissue tissue massage, exercise therapy such as for instance ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional training.

Furthermore PTAs regularly assist their patients to prevent losing mobility by applying wellness and fitness plans to facilitate more active healthier lifestyles. Whenever a PTA sees a patient initially, the PTA helps the physical therapist examine the individual and create a treatment plan promoting recovered functions, the ability to move, protecting against impairment and reducing discomfort. Then, together, the PT, Physical therapy assistant, and individual each work with each other to ensure the objective of the health program is reached, calculating the patient's progression, healing, and safety even while making modifications as necessary.
