Physical therapy assistants carry out their tasks beneath the supervision and direction of a certified PT. PTs rely heavily on their Physical therapist assistants, therefore it is important that a Physical therapist assistant can offer patients a complete plan of physical therapy practices. PTAs apply lots of physical therapy methods when caring for patients. Some techniques incorporate physical modalities, deep soft tissue tissue massage, exercise therapy such as for instance ultrasound and electrotherapy as well as functional exercises.

Additionally PTAs frequently aid their patients to prevent losing mobility by employing wellness and fitness programs to facilitate more active healthy life styles. Anytime a Physical therapy assistant sees a patient initially, the PTA helps the PT study the person and create a therapy program promoting repaired usability, the ability to move, avoiding impairment and pain reduction. Then, together as a team, the physical therapist, PTA, and individual each work together to make certain the purpose of the therapy plan is attained, calculating the patient's progress, healing, and safety even while making modifications as necessary.
