All Physical Therapists who possess a valid license are qualified to practice and
have a high level of training and skill. Not all therapists, however, go on to further their knowledge and abilities
through post-graduate studies and training.
Therapists at Performance Physical Therapy
have made the extra effort to achieve Board Certification and obtain Advanced
Training in Manual and Exercise Therapy. The American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties recognizes those therapists who
have met the requirements of experience, advanced training, contribution to the profession, and qualification by examination
as Specialists. Specialty fields range from Orthopedics and Neurology to Sports and
Pediatrics and are similar in title to the specialties held by medical doctors.
In addition, therapists at Performance Physical
Therapy also hold certifications in numerous Manual Therapy and Exercise disciplines such as Certified
Strength and Conditioning Specialist from the NSCA, long-term training programs from the North American Institute of
Orthopedic Manual Therapy (NAIOMT), and the URSA Foundation for Osteopathic manual practice.
Furthermore, we are one of the few clinics in Northern
Nevada that have therapists certified in Therapeutic "Dry" Needling.
While it may be of some assurance to you that your Therapist has lots of letters
after their name, please bear in mind that the ultimate measure of our performance is your results. Helping you achieve success
is our number one goal!
