Orthopedic Certified Specialist (OCS)

Specialization is the process by which a physical therapist builds on a broad base of professional education and practice to develop a greater depth of knowledge and skills related to a particular area of practice. The specialist certification program was established to provide formal recognition for physical therapists with advanced clinical knowledge, experience, and skills in a special area of practice and to assist consumers and the health care community in identifying these physical therapists.

A physical therapist who has earned certification as an orthopedic clinical specialist may use the credential OCS after his or her name. He or she has demonstrated the ability to provide specialized care to people with bone fractures, abnormalities of the skeletal system and other orthopedic problems, such as:

  • Sports Injuries
  • Sprains/Strains
  • Fractures
  • Post-Op Orthopedic Procedures
  • Arthritis
  • Back and Neck Pain
  • Spinal Conditions
  • Amputations
