What Our Members Are Saying

APTA Kentucky advances and empowers the physical therapy profession to improve the health of the Commonwealth.

Physical Therapy in Kentucky

The first physical therapist arrived in Kentucky in 1935. Within the next few years Mary McDonnell was joined by 15 of her colleagues. They came to fight the crippling effects of polio. They touched the lives of World War II veterans whose bodies were mangled and broken. In 1947, feeling the need to unite and expand their knowledge, they founded the Kentucky Chapter of the American Physical Therapy Association. These pioneers could only dream their association, which started with 16 members, would grow to serve over 1,600 members.

Today, we are known as APTA Kentucky, a Chapter of the American Physical Therapy Association with a combined national presence of over 100,000 members.
