APTA Montana celebrated it's 70th Anniversary in 2020

Our archives contain communication between the "physiotherapists" of Montana dating back to the mid1940's. First officially formed in 1950, APTAMT members worked together to continually improve industry standards. From the days of train transportation to advanced technology of the internet age, physical therapy in Montana kept pace with these changes. APTAMT is looking for a volunteer to serve as historian to continue searching the archives to complete this history section.
