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 heartfelt congratulations to all eleven physical therapists who received their Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist certifications,” said Dr. Andrew Bennett, PT, OCS, FAAOMPT, TexPTS Co-Owner. “We’re very proud of the hard work they put in to achieve their goals, and the passion for their profession and their patients that this hard work reflects.”
