Members can access the IFSPT journal on line through the members section.

The Sports Physical Therapy Section (SPTS) created the North American Journal of Sports Physical Therapy to address current physical therapy trends and practices to improve the care of the recreationally active individual.

It was designed as a benefit of membership for the Sports Physical Therapy Section of the American Physical Therapy Association. The first issue was released February 1, 2006. Beginning V4N1, the Journal became an online publication and all archives were posted on the NAJSPT website. Members and subscribers have immediate access to the publication and articles are available for purchase by non-members. Subscriptions are also available for non-members.

On January 1, 2011, the journal became the International Journal of Sports Physical Therapy, and serves as a benefit of membership for countries around the world. It is an official publication of the International Federation of Sports Physical Therapy (IFSPT).
