Physical therapist assistants conduct their jobs underneath the guidance and direction of a licensed physical therapist. PTs rely heavily on their Physical therapist assistants, so it's important that a Physical therapist assistant can offer patients a complete plan of physical therapy practices. PTAs apply numerous physical therapy techniques while looking after patients. Some techniques incorporate deep soft tissue massage, therapeutic exercise, physical modalities such as for example ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional training.

In addition Physical therapy assistants usually aid their patients to avoid losing movement by applying health and fitness programs for more active healthy lifestyles. When a Physical therapy assistant examines a patient first, they help the PT analyze the person and develop a therapy program promoting restored functionality, being able to move, preventing disability and reducing discomfort. Then, together, the PT, PTA, and client each work together to make certain the goal of the therapy plan is reached, measuring patient progression, reaction, and safety while making adjustments as required.
