We are proud to announce that eight CORA therapists have earned the professional designation of Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist (OCS).
Each year the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) recognizes a select few physical therapists who pass a rigorous examination related to their area of expertise to become board certified Orthopaedic Clinical Specialists (OCS).
The OCS Board Certification is granted by American Board of Physical Therapy Specialists (ABPTS) and was established to provide formal recognition for physical therapists with advanced clinical knowledge, experience, and skills in a special area of practice and to assist consumers and the health care community in identifying these physical therapists. Orthopaedic Clinical Specialists are experts in evaluating and treating musculoskeletal conditions, a distinguished honor that is shared by less than 5% of all physical therapists in the United States.
This is a big honor, so be sure to congratulate these clinicians if you see them at your next appointment or out-and-about walking around your hometown! We are very proud to have these eight individuals on our CORA Team treating you right each and every day.
