Welcome to the Louisiana Physical Therapy Board...
The Louisiana Physical Therapy Board was created within the Department of Health and Human Resources. The Board consists of seven members who shall be appointed by the Governor.
This board is legislatively mandated to license and regulate the physical therapists and physical therapist assistants who wish to work in Louisiana. The Board is mandated to interpret the scope of practice for physical therapy, write regulations, and discipline licensees who have violated the law. The most important function of the Board is to protect the citizens of Louisiana.
