The Wyoming Legislature created the Board of Physical Therapy in 1961 to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public by regulating the practice of physical therapy.  

The Board is not the same as the Wyoming Physical Therapy Association.  The Board, unlike the association, does not advocate on behalf of the licensee, but on behalf of the public consumer.  While the Board and the Association may collaborate, their roles are different.
