State Board of Physical Therapy

The State Board of Physical Therapy regulates the practice of physical therapy in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.  It is the Board’s duty to pass upon the qualifications of applicants for licensure as physical therapists and registration as physical therapist assistants.  Among its other functions, the Board issues, renews, suspends and revokes licenses and registrations. 
Please note that neither the Board/Commission, nor its staff or counsel, are permitted to provide legal advice or advisory opinions, including interpretations of the law or regulations, or any indication as to how the Board would vote on any given case or scenario.  You are invited to contact a private attorney or professional organization for advice or guidance.
