Congratulations APTA on Achieving a Milestone

Congratulations to the American Physiotherapy Association (APTA) for achieving 100,000 members across its 51 chapters and divisions. As the numbers grow the profile of physio in the US will only get stronger and stronger.

The APTA is the organization which represents more than 100,000 member Physiotherapists (+students) and assistants. It seeks to improve the health and quality of its members and advance physio practice, education, and research, and by increasing the awareness and understanding in America. APTA members are represented by the state chapters and special-interest sections, each with its own leadership, as well as a physical therapist assistant caucus and student assembly, collectively called “components.”

With a proud history that dates back to 1921, APTA is guided by the Vision Statement for the Physical Therapy Profession and by the association’s dynamic Strategic Plan, which informs decision making and helps APTA achieve the vision.
