PT assistants conduct their tasks underneath the supervision and instruction of a licensed PT. Physical therapists rely primarily on their PTAs, so it's necessary that a Physical therapist assistant can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy practices. Physical therapist assistants employ many physical therapy methods while taking care of clients. Several methods incorporate physical modalities, deep tissue massage, therapeutic exercise such as for instance ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional training.

In addition PTAs frequently aid their clients to prevent losing mobility by creating wellness and physical fitness plans to create more active healthy life styles. Anytime a Physical therapist assistant examines a patient for the first time, they help the physical therapist analyze the person and create a therapy plan supporting recovered functions, the ability to move, preventing disability and pain reduction. Then, together as a team, the PT, PTA, and client each work together to make sure the goal of the therapy plan is achieved, calculating client progression, reaction, and safety even while making modifications as needed.
