An Orthopedic Clinical Specialist is a physical therapist who is certified and recognized by the American Board of Physical Therapy in the specialty area of orthopedics. Therapists who have obtained this certification have completed at least 2,000 hours of patient care in an orthopedic setting and have passed a challenging written examination by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA).
You can expect your physical therapist with an Orthopedic Clinical Specialist certification to have advanced expertise and knowledge in the latest treatment techniques, evidence based practice, and outcomes when working with you and addressing your orthopedic condition.
