BTPT Congratulates Lucas Simoes, Vance Stroupe, and Matt Ware on earning the OCS designation

We’re incredibly proud of the work they put in, and the passion for their profession that this hard work reflects. We look forward to seeing how our patients benefit from their expertise.

BreakThrough Physical Therapy (BTPT) is proud to announce that Lucas Simoes, PT, MS, OCS, Vance Stroupe, PT, MPT, DPT, OCS and Matt Ware, PT, DPT, MPT, Cert. MDT, OCS, have received training and earned the professional designation of Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist (OCS).

The OCS Board Certification is granted by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA)’s American Board of Physical Therapy Specialists (ABPTS) and involves 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 Clinical 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.

“We offer our sincere congratulations to Drs. Simoes, Stroupe, and Ware for receiving their Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist certifications,” said Jeff Hathaway, PT, DPT, BTPT Owner. “We’re incredibly proud of the work they put in, and the passion for their profession that this hard work reflects. We look forward to seeing how our patients benefit from their expertise.”

“At BreakThrough Physical Therapy our plan is to have all therapists reach this level of expertise,” Hathaway continues. “We are well on our way to hit that goal.”
