Certified Manual Physical Therapy


Manual Physical Therapy is a hands-on form of physical therapy that allows professionals to help facilitate healing and restore function. Manual Therapists use skilled joint movements to improve range of motion, extensibility, and reduce pain and swelling. Manual therapy is based on careful examination of the patient’s movement patterns, including range of motion issues and the subsequent overcompensation that can prevent healing.


Current research confirms that manual physical therapy combined with therapeutic exercise achieves better outcomes for musculoskeletal injuries than exercise alone. A certification is a postdoctoral program that requires copious hours of didactic training, and successful completion of written and practical

competency testing.


The CMPT program Brad completed included 150 hours of classwork and culminated with successfully passing seven written and one oral practical examinations.

Orthopedic Clinical Specialty 


The specialist certification program was established in 1978 by the American Physical Therapy Association 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. It is estimated that approximately 5% of physical therapists have achieved this honor.

Aquatic Therapy

Aquatic therapy is great for those needing physical activity with water's natural viscosity and resistance. This is not only helpful with muscle strengthening, but also helps with rehabilitation and relaxation while reducing the hinderance of gravity's natural pull on sore muscles and joints.
