We feel that having one focus leads to better outcome for our patients.

Gallien Therapy understands the significance of each patient’s orthopedic injury or condition. Every person is unique and their rehab must reflect that fact.

We know that rehabilitation is a team effort with patient, physician, and physical therapist working together to gain the best results.

WHY CHOOSE A BOARD CERTIFIED ORTHOPEDIC SPECIALIST FOR YOU PHYSICAL THERAPY PATIENT?

You want the best. You make sure you are seeing a certified orthopedic physician/surgeon to ensure the best possible outcome. It stands to reason, you would want the most qualified physical therapy care for rehabilitation. That is why when your choosing physical therapy care, you want to work with a board certified orthopedic specialist.

Becoming a Board Certified Specialist is one of the ways that our therapist exemplifies clinical excellence. Specialist certification, established by the American Physical Therapy Association, requires a broad base of professional experience, education, clinical knowledge, and skill related to a particular area of practice.

To become board certified, therapists must first qualify to sit for a specialist certification examination. Holding a current license, having a minimum of 2,000 clinical hours in the specialty area, and the approval of a council established by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialists are some of the eligibility requirements to take the test. Therapists must then pass the certification examination that tests knowledge and responsibilities in areas such as: Evaluation, Diagnosis, Prognosis, Intervention, Outcomes, Anatomy, Evidence Based Theory, and Movement Science.
