Physical therapy licensure is a requirement for practicing as a PT and is managed by individual state regulatory boards. Also, a physical therapy license is required in each state where a PT wishes to practice. They must renew each regularly. Most states require continuing education as a requirement for renewal.
Upon successful completion of the exams and fulfillment of all other applicable licensing authority requirements, a license is awarded, allowing the applicant to practice as a PT in their state. Each of the above links provides the requirements for obtaining and keeping a physical therapy license current.
For additional support, we recommend contacting your state's chapter of APTA (The American Physical Therapy Association.) APTA supports more than 100,000 member PTs, PTAs, and students. It offers timely information on careers, practices, patient care, advocacy, and more. It is an excellent resource for anyone interested in physical therapy.
