PT assistants perform their jobs under the guidance and direction of a licensed physical therapist. Physical therapists rely a great deal on their PTAs, therefore it is important that a PTA can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy activities. PTAs employ lots of physical therapy methods while caring for clients. A few techniques include deep tissue massage, therapeutic exercise, physical modalities such as for instance ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional training.

In addition PTAs often aid their patients to avoid losing movement by employing health and physical fitness routines to create more active lifestyles. When a Physical therapist assistant examines a patient for the first time, the PTA helps the PT study the person and develop a treatment plan encouraging restored usability, being able to move, avoiding disability and pain reduction. Then, together, the PT, Physical therapist assistant, and patient each work collectively to ensure the goals of the therapy program is attained, calculating the patient's progression, reaction, and well-being even while making adjustments as required.
