ProRehab Physical Therapy Physical Therapists Become Board Certified Specialists

ProRehab Physical Therapy (PRPT) is proud to announce that Daryl Williams, PT, DPT, SCS, and Ed Foring, PT, DPT, OCS, CSCS, have received training and earned the professional designation of Sports Clinical Specialist (SCS) and Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist (OCS), respectively.

The OCS and SCS Board Certifications are granted by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA)’s American Board of Physical Therapy Specialists (ABPTS) and involve rigorous application and examination processes. Roughly 6.5% of the physical therapists in the United States are Board Certified in a specialty, and only 3.9% of therapists in the United States are Orthopaedic Clinical Specialists. Fewer than 1% of physical therapists are Sports Clinical Specialists. Dr. Williams is now one of four Sports Clinical Specialists in Kentucky.

“I have worked very closely with Dr. Williams and Dr. Foring and to see them maximize their physical therapy potential and gain formal recognition for their hard work is wonderful,” said David Boyce, PT, EdD, OCS, ECS, CEO of ProRehab Physical Therapy. “They are truly clinical specialists.”

The advanced clinical knowledge and skill set that comes with a Board Certification allows therapists to better treat the patients in their specialty and keeps them up-to-date with cutting edge research and technology. The OCS certification focuses on evidence-based practice, orthopedic injury examination, treatment, and medical interventions while the SCS certification concentrates on acute and critical sports injury treatment and sports injury prevention and wellness.

“We offer our sincere congratulations to Drs. Williams and Foring for receiving their Sports Clinical Specialist and Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist certifications,” said Dr. Larry Benz, CEO and President of Confluent Health, ProRehab’s parent company. “We’re incredibly proud of the hard work they put in to earning these designations, and the passion for their profession that this hard work reflects. We look forward to seeing how our patients benefit from their expertise.”
