Physical therapy assistants conduct their tasks underneath the supervising and direction of a licensed PT. Physical therapists rely a great deal on their PT assistants, so it is essential that a Physical therapist assistant can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy practices. Physical therapist assistants employ numerous physical therapy techniques while looking after people. Certain methods include deep tissue massage, exercise therapy, physical modalities like ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional training.

Additionally Physical therapy assistants regularly assist their clients to avoid losing mobility by implementing health and fitness programs to enable more active healthier lifestyles. When a Physical therapist assistant sees a client first, they help the PT analyze the person and create a therapy program encouraging recovered functionality, the ability to move, avoiding impairment and pain reduction. Then, together, the PT, Physical therapy assistant, and patient all work collectively to make certain the goal of the therapy program is achieved, calculating client progression, healing, and safety even while making modifications as required.
