Physical Therapy Licensing and Disciplinary Board

Physical therapists became regulated between 1951 and 1952. Physical therapy is the treatment

or evaluation of a person by the use of effective properties of physical measures such as heat,

cold, light, water, radiant energy, electricity, sound and air; the use of therapeutic massage,

exercise and mobilization; and the rehabilitative procedures for preventing, correcting or

alleviating a physical or mental disability. The Committee is made up of seven members

appointed by the Secretary, consisting of six licensees actively practicing physical therapy and

one public member. The Committee is charged with providing expert knowledge and advice on

disciplinary matters and professional performance and conduct.
