About

Welcome to the Section on Clinical Electrophysiology and Wound Management website. The Section is a component of the American Physical Therapy Association and consists of approximately 1,000 physical therapy practitioners who are interested in electrophysiology, electrotherapy/physical agents, and wound management.

The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), a national professional organization representing more than 66,000 members throughout the United States, established the specialist certification program in 1978. Specialization is the process by which a physical therapist builds on a broad base of professional education and practice to develop a greater depth of knowledge and skills related to a particular area of practice.
