An Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist (OCS) has received formal recognition from the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialists, a division of the American Physical Therapy Association, as a physical therapist that has advanced clinical knowledge, experience, and skills in orthopaedics. Orthopaedics focuses on the musculoskeletal system, which includes your bones, joints, tendons, muscles, ligaments, and nerves, and how disease and injuries impact the ability to move.
One of the requirements to be a certified specialist is spending at least 2000 clinic hours of direct patient care in this specialty area. At Capstone, we encourage our therapists to continue to grow and develop advanced skill sets. Our physical therapists who have OCS after their names are committed and passionate about providing superior patient care.
