  • Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy Residency
Residency is about developing a sound and up-to-date knowledge base in orthopedic practice, learning how to apply it in clinical practice and developing the skills required to keep current.Graduates of an orthopedic manual therapy residency have undergone one to two years of training at an additional level of rigor, demonstrated excellence outside the clinical practice of manual therapy in the areas of teaching and research, and completed extensive clinical mentorship hours.
  • Board-Certified Orthopedic Therapy
A therapist choosing to specialize and practice a greater depth of knowledge and skills in orthopedic and manual therapy may pursue board certification from the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties, a division of the American Physical Therapy Association.BenchMark Physical Therapy currently employs 27 orthopedic-certified specialists (OCSs) with 18 more scheduled to sit for the board exam in 2012 and 2013 once they complete BenchMark Physical Therapy’s credentialed orthopedic residency program.According to Troy Bage, President of BenchMark Physical Therapy, “Orthopedic certified specialists have been shown to be more efficient than non-OCS therapists using fewer visits, less cost and requiring fewer treatment procedures — with better outcomes.”
  • Orthopedic Manual Therapy Fellowship
Fellowship graduates represent the best clinicians in the physical therapy profession, equipped to teach and mentor residents, clinicians and students having the following qualifications for entry into the program: 1) specialist certification or completion of a residency in a specialty area, 2) substantial clinical experience in a specialty area, and 3) demonstrable clinical skills within a particular specialty area.
  • Outcomes — Advanced Certification in Practice
Research on expertise in physical therapy published in 2000 demonstrated that expert practice in physical therapy included four dimensions: 1) a dynamic, multidimensional knowledge base that is patient-centered, 2) a clinical reasoning process that is a collaborative, problem-solving effort with the patient, 3) a central focus on movement assessment linked to patient function, and 4) consistent virtues seen in caring and commitment to patients.4In fact, patients of OCS therapists had higher PF-10 (10-item physical functioning subscale of the medical outcomes study) scores than patients of non-OCS therapists. The study concluded that expert practice in physical therapy allows advanced-certified clinicians to use knowledge and clinical reasoning to more quickly and more effectively address and treat patient problems.

PT is a very important field today and it has great scope as a profession. In connection to Orthopaedics its importance cannot be guessed because these are interrelated yet independent professions.
