This study aimed to identify the availability and usage of EPA by physiotherapists in East Jakarta, Indonesia. Methods: This study used online survey research method. The target population was physiotherapists in East Jakarta who joined in the WhatsApp group of the Indonesian Physiotherapy Association, East Jakarta Branch. From 189 target respondents, only 73 respondents were willing to fill out the questionnaires given by the researchers. Results:In the view from the availability of EPA modalities, most respondents or 91.8% answered the availability of electrical stimulation. It is followed by ultrasound therapy (84.9%). The least EPA modalities found in the respondent's workplace were paraffin bath (23.3%). From the results, the use of EPA modalities in the form of ultrasound therapy and electrical stimulation was the most widely used. Subsequently, as many as 49.3% of respondents used the ultrasound therapy modality every day. A total of 45.2% of respondents used electrical stimulation modality. Conclusion. The EPA modalities are quite widely available among physiotherapists in East Jakarta, Indonesia. The most widely available modalities are electrical stimulation, ultrasound therapy, and infrared radiation and in addition to the diathermy modality, which is also quite widely available.
