The Training Room is proud to announce that our very own Physical Therapist Akil Piggott, has earned the professional designation of Orthopaedic Certified Specialist (OCS).
The OCS Board Certification is granted by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA)’s American Board of Physical Therapy Specialists (ABPTS) and involves a rigorous application and examination processes. Less than 10% of the physical therapists in the United States are Board Certified in a specialty. 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 specialize in a specific area of interest. 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.
We are very proud to have Akil providing therapy in our Cherry Hill office and excited to have his expertise within our company. Please join us in congratulating him on this accomplishment!
