We Are Your Physical Therapists

APTA Private Practice is comprised of almost 4,000 physical therapists nationwide who own, operate, or work in a private practice setting. We are a component of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) and our mission is to champion the success of the physical therapist in business. APTA Private Practice members benefit from the Section's focus on advocacy; payment policy; education on practice management, business, marketing, public relations, and business innovation. APTA Private Practice was incorporated in Nevada in 1956 as a non-profit 501(c)6 and is now headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia.



The mission of the Private Practice Section is to champion the success of the physical therapist in business.
