Credentials

All physical therapists receive a broad based rehabilitation education, but much like medical doctors, specialize in specific areas or practice. Movement for Life physical therapists are licensed in their state of practice and are encouraged and supported in continued education to facilitate further professional growth and development. We have 23 specialty certified therapists in the areas of orthopedics, sports, geriatrics, pediatrics and hand therapy; and nearly 90% of our staff holds doctorate degrees in physical therapy. We are very proud to have professionals who have demonstrated a motivation and ability to distinguish themselves as advanced clinicians in a specialized field of physical therapy. Of all licensed PTs in the United States, less than 10% have completed board certification. Ultimately this advanced training benefits our patients and their physical therapy outcomes.
