Fremont County now has a Sports Certified Specialist
Fremont County residents with sports related injuries now have access to a Sports Certified Specialist to help them recover quickly and get back to competing and enjoying their competitive sport or hobby.
Fremont Therapy Group’s Tom Davis has earned board certification as a Sports Certified Specialist (SCS) by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties. He joins only one other Wyoming physical therapist with an SCS certification currently working in Gillette.
Fewer than 10% of the American Physical Therapy Association members attain advanced certification. Out of the 217,000 physical therapists currently working in the US, only 1,800 have the SCS certification.
The SCS is the highest qualification that a physical therapist can attain in practice of Sports Physical Therapy. To obtain the certification Davis had to submit at least 2,000 hours of direct patient care in that area and pass a 250 question exam (which takes 5-7 hours to complete) covering patient care situations. He spent over a year preparing for the test.
What does this mean for Fremont County residents?
Whether it’s recovering from a surgery or wondering if you should keep performing on an injury, Davis can help make a treatment plan that will ease your concerns and get you back to doing what you love. You don’t have to be a competitive athlete either. If you like to run, bike, hike, climb, ski, board or any number of other sports, you’re in good hands with Davis.
If you have an injury and aren’t sure if you should “tough it out” or see a specialist, call our clinic.
