Physical therapist assistants conduct their services under the guidance and instruction of a certified physical therapist. PTs rely heavily on their PT assistants, so it is crucial that a Physical therapy assistant can offer clients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy workouts. PTAs employ many physical therapy techniques when looking after patients. Some methods incorporate deep massage, exercise therapy, physical modalities particularly ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional training.

Furthermore PTAs commonly aid their clients to avoid losing mobility by creating health and fitness programs to create more active life styles. Whenever a Physical therapist assistant examines an individual first, they help the PT examine the individual and develop a care program encouraging recovered usability, the ability to move, preventing disability and reducing discomfort. Then, together, the PT, Physical therapist assistant, and individual each work collectively to ensure the goal of the health program is achieved, calculating patient progression, healing, and safety even while making modifications as needed.
