We empower the physical therapy profession to make a deeper impact in the world around us.

Transforming society by optimizing movement to improve the human experience is our vision for the physical therapy profession.

We do that by advancing the profession, advocating for consumers to have better access to treatment by physical therapists and physical therapist assistants, and raising public awareness about the benefits of physical therapy.

Your active participation strengthens our collective voice and helps us accelerate progress.
