PT assistants perform their jobs underneath the supervision and instruction of a certified PT. PTs rely a great deal on their PT assistants, so it is important that a Physical therapy assistant can offer patients a complete plan of physical therapy practices. PT assistants apply numerous physical therapy techniques when taking care of patients. Several techniques include physical modalities, deep tissue tissue massage, exercise therapy like ultrasound and electrotherapy as well as functional exercises.

In addition Physical therapy assistants frequently aid their clients to avoid losing movement by creating health and physical fitness workouts to facilitate more active life styles. Whenever a Physical therapist assistant sees a patient first, the PTA helps the PT analyze the person and create a therapy program supporting restored functions, being able to move, avoiding impairment and reducing pain. Then, together as a team, the PT, PTA, and patient all work together to make sure the objective of the health plan is achieved, calculating the patient's progression, reaction, and well-being even while making adjustments as necessary.
