Welcome to the West Virginia Board of Physical Therapy

The WV Board of Physical Therapy (WVBOPT) is a state regulatory board that was created by the WV Legislature to regulate the practice of physical therapy in order to protect the public from the unauthorized, unqualified and unregulated practice of physical therapy. We also provide definitions, registration, and title protection of Athletic Trainers. The WVBOPT is a part of the Executive Branch of the Government which enforces laws.

License fees paid into the board affords regulated PT's, PTA's, and AT's the privilege of practicing their profession within the borders of the State of WV.

Contact information for the board Office appears at the bottom of this page or via the link in the right-hand column.

WVBOPT is a separate entity from the West Virginia Physical Therapy Association (WVPTA) and the WV Athletic Trainers Association (WVATA). The role and mission of the WVBOPT is to regulate the profession and to protect the public.

The WVPTA and WVATA are organizations that represent the Physical Therapists, Physical Therapist Assistants, and Athletic Trainers in the state.

Association dues paid into the WV Chapters are separate and distinct from license fees that are paid to the WV Board of Physical Therapy. Association dues will afford PT's,PTA's, and AT's in the state an opportunity to network and stay abreast of any legislation that may be proposed that could impact the profession.
