Austin, TX (PRWEB) July 23, 2014
Texas Physical Therapy Specialists (TexPTS) is proud to announce that seven physical therapists from their Westlake, Westgate, Liberty Hill, Parmer, Balcones, and Georgetown clinics have received training and earned the professional designation of Orthopaedic Certified Specialist (OCS) or Sports Certified Specialist (SCS) this June. Adriana Juarez, PT, DPT, OCS, Tony Lauretta, PT, DPT, OCS, Jason Brown, PT, DPT, OCS, Mark Milligan, PT, DPT, OCS, Joseph Leech, PT, DPT, OCS, and Mary Grimberg, PT, DPT, OCS received their OCS certification, while JD Whittemore, PT, DPT, SCS, received his SCS certification.
The OCS and SCS Board Certifications are granted by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA)’s American Board of Physical Therapy Specialists (ABPTS) and involve rigorous application and examination processes. Roughly 6.5% of the physical therapists in the United States are Board Certified in a specialty, and only 3.9% of therapists in the United States are Orthopaedic Certified Specialists. Fewer than 1% of physical therapists are Sports Certified Specialists.
The advanced clinical knowledge and skill set that comes with a Board Certification allows therapists to better treat the patients in their specialty and keeps them up-to-date with cutting edge research and technology. The OCS certification focuses on evidence-based practice, orthopedic injury examination, treatment, and medical interventions while the SCS certification concentrates on acute and critical sports injury treatment and sports injury prevention and wellness.
