Strengthening the physical therapy community is at the core of our association mission.

APTA provides multiple opportunities to find your people, including participation within our chapters and sections, special interest groups, and councils.

We also engage physical therapist assistants and physical therapy students through member leadership groups.

APTA membership is about more than benefits — it's about collaborating to advance the profession.

APTA is so much more than conferences, access to clinical practice guidelines, and opportunities to meet other professionals. APTA is a community, a family, a group of students and professionals who come together to grow and learn from one another; they inspire you to become the best version of yourself.
