Physical Therapist Assistant Job Introduction

Search PTA Jobs in Arizona

Physical therapist assistants perform their services under the guidance and direction of a licensed physical therapist. Physical therapists rely greatly on their PT assistants, so it is important that a PTA can offer patients a comprehensive plan of physical therapy activities. PTAs employ numerous physical therapy techniques when taking care of patients. Several techniques include deep tissue massage, therapeutic exercise, physical modalities such as ultrasound and electro therapy as well as functional exercises.

Furthermore Physical therapist assistants regularly assist their patients to prevent losing mobility by establishing health and physical fitness workouts to facilitate more active healthier life styles. When a Physical therapy assistant sees an individual first, they help the PT examine the individual and develop a treatment plan encouraging recovered functionality, the ability to move, preventing disability and pain reduction. Then, as a team, the PT, Physical therapy assistant, and client each work with each other to make sure the purpose of the therapy program is attained, calculating patient progress, healing, and safety even while making adjustments as needed.
