1160 - PHYSICAL THERAPY BOARD OF CALIFORNIA
The Physical Therapy Board of California licenses and regulates physical therapists. Physical therapists in independent practice treat patients who have disabilities resulting from accidents, congenital defects or illnesses. To ensure proper patient evaluation and treatment, those physical therapists must meet the minimum standards established according to law. This is accomplished by licensing those who possess the necessary qualifications, enforcing standards of ethical conduct established for licensees, and policing against unlicensed practice.
