WVBOPT is a separate entity from the West Virginia Physical Therapy Association (WVPTA) and the WV Athletic Trainers Association (WVATA). The role and mission of the WVBOPT is to regulate the profession and to protect the public.

The WVPTA and WVATA are organizations that represent the Physical Therapists, Physical Therapist Assistants, and Athletic Trainers in the state.

Association dues paid into the WV Chapters are separate and distinct from license fees that are paid to the WV Board of Physical Therapy. Association dues will afford PT's, PTA's, and AT's in the state an opportunity to network and stay abreast of any legislation that may be proposed that could impact the profession.
