Clinicians of Evolution Sports Physiotherapy Continue to Demonstrate Higher Levels of Clinical Expertise!

Evolution Sports Physiotherapy is proud to announce that both Lisa Kanning and Kyle Bartgis have successfully passed the Board Certification as an Orthopedic Certified Specialist (OCS).

The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) established the specialist certification program in 1978. 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. Clinical specialization in physical therapy responds to a specific area of patient need and requires knowledge, skill, and experience exceeding that of the physical therapist at entry to the profession and unique to the specialized 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.

The American Board of Physical Therapy Specialists (ABPTS) has researched many components of clinical expertise and concludes that “Specialists have more knowledge and skill, have different thought processes, and may synthesize information differently from entry-level physical therapists or non-specialists. Specialist are more efficient and effective in the patient/client management.”

Clinicians at Evolutions Sports Physiotherapy continue to strive to become more knowledgeable and to objectively demonstrate their expertise. The incorporation of the OCS certification into everyday practice ensures patients of Evolution Sports that the most accomplished and passionate therapists in the Baltimore area will be carrying out their care. The level of 1 on 1 care at Evolution promotes a quicker recovery and an optimized outcome from physical therapy.
