Physical therapy assistants carry out their tasks under the guidance and direction of a certified physical therapist. Physical therapists rely a great deal on their PTAs, so it is important that a Physical therapy assistant can offer clients a complete plan of physical therapy techniques. Physical therapy assistants apply many physical therapy techniques while caring for patients. Several methods incorporate deep soft tissue massage, therapeutic exercise, physical modalities like ultrasound and electro-therapy as well as functional exercises.

In addition PTAs frequently aid their clients to avoid losing mobility by creating health and fitness plans to ensure more active healthier lifestyles. Anytime a PTA sees an individual initially, they help the PT study the individual and create a treatment program encouraging repaired usability, being able to move, preventing disability and pain reduction. Then, together as a team, the physical therapist, Physical therapy assistant, and client each work with each other to make certain the objective of the therapy plan is reached, measuring the patient's progress, healing, and safety even while making modifications as needed.
