WHO WE ARE

Reconstruction Aides at Fort Sam 1919

The profession grew out of World War I when Reconstructive Aides were sent overseas and around the United States to help soldiers recover from wounds and battle neurosis. Reconstructive Aides were both occupational and physical therapists.The first professional physical therapy association was established in 1921.

Throughout the years physiotherapists trickled into the state and became members-at-large. The state had eleven members at that time, four of which were located in Dallas. It was those members from Dallas that petitioned for a Texas Chapter. The first formal meeting of the Texas Chapter was held May 21, 1930.

We envision a life empowered through optimal movement. Our mission is to advance physical therapist practice to optimize the movement, health, and wellness of people in Texas.
