|Southeastern Med Physical Therapists Earn Highest Distinction
The American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties (ABPTS) of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) has awarded specialist certification in orthopaedics to four of the physical therapists at Southeastern Med’s Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation:
Obtaining Board certification is a voluntary, rigorous process that sets these therapist apart as experts in their field of specialty. In order to be considered, candidates must first submit evidence of required clinical practice in a specialty area. The candidates must then pass a rigorous written examination, demonstrating specialized knowledge and advanced clinical proficiency in that specialty area. This examination historically has a 60% pass rate.
Southeastern Med is extremely proud to have four physical therapists on staff that decided to pursue and successfully attain this prestigious honor. There are currently 6710 licensed physical therapists in Ohio and only 95 of them are Board Certified Specialists in Orthopaedic Physical Therapy. This equates to 1.4% of the physical therapy profession in Ohio holding this honor and four of these physical therapists are located at Southeastern Med in Cambridge, Ohio. Board Certified Specialists are considered experts in their field of specialty and should be the top choice when choosing a healthcare provider.
Our physical therapy is delivered by licensed physical therapists who diagnose and treat patients of all ages who have medical problems or other conditions that limit their ability to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives. Southeastern Med has 4 physical therapists with national specialist certification in Orthopaedics, a prestigious honor only 1.4% of the physical therapy professionals in Ohio holds.
