Board Certified in Electromyography
In 1982, the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) approved board certification for clinical electrophysiology. It is awarded by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties to physical therapists who for demonstrate knowledge and clinical proficiency in the evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation of electroneuromyography examinations.
Individuals with this designation must recertify their status every 10 years, have 2,000 hours of direct patient care as a licensed physical therapist and provide evidence of performing a minimum of 500 complete electroneuromyography examinations during those hours. Alternately, individuals can submit evidence of successful completion of an APTA-accredited post-professional clinical electrophysiologic clinical residency completed within the last 10 years.
KORT’s board certified clinical electrophysiologists provide electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction testing to determine if the electrical activity of muscles and nerves is normal.
