Todd Vanatta and Brandon Clement, physical therapists at Northern Rehab Physical Therapy Specialists, recently became board certified in orthopedics by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties (ABPTS) and the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA).

The Orthopedic Certified Specialist (OCS) has shown advanced knowledge and proficiency in orthopedic physical therapy practice based on the most current evidence and modern practices.  Applicants must prove years of experience in orthopedics as well as take an intense national exam covering all areas within orthopedic practice.

The exam covers all musculoskeletal and neurologic impairments in each extremity, the head and neck, the spine, temporomandibular joint (TMJ), as well as more global syndromes effecting the whole body.  Applicants are also tested on their knowledge of signs and symptoms that may require referral to other sources, in cases such as undiagnosed fractures, tumors, or heart conditions, just to name a few.

Northern Rehab now has 6 therapists that are board certified in Orthopedic Physical Therapy, 2 Certified strength and conditioning specialists, several therapists with advanced training in industrial medicine, as well as many other certifications and designations between the entire staff.  They continue to pursue the most modern and effective physical therapy practices to advance their patient-focused care.
