As a PTA, your day-to-day responsibilities could include helping patients perform exercises and stretches to improve their mobility and flexibility, administering modalities like heat, cold, or electrical stimulation to relieve pain and swelling, and giving patients guidance on how to use assistive devices like crutches or wheelchairs.

You'll also be responsible for documenting patient progress and communicating with other healthcare professionals about your patients' needs and progress. Plus, you'll need to be able to adapt your treatment plans to fit each patient's unique needs and goals.
