Physical therapy assistants carry out their jobs under the supervising and direction of a certified physical therapist. Physical therapists rely heavily on their PTAs, so it's necessary that a PTA can offer clients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy activities. PTAs apply many physical therapy methods when looking after clients. A few techniques include physical modalities, deep soft tissue tissue massage, therapeutic exercise such as for example ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional training.

Additionally PTAs regularly assist their patients to avoid losing mobility by employing health and physical fitness programs to enable more active lifestyles. Anytime a PTA examines a client for the 1st time, they help the physical therapist examine the person and create a care plan supporting recovered functions, the ability to move, preventing disability and reducing suffering. Then, as a team, the PT, Physical therapy assistant, and client each work together to ensure the purpose of the therapy plan is reached, calculating client progression, response, and well-being while making modifications as necessary.
