Julie DePaul and Wren Cunningham, both of Healthy Focus Physical Therapy in Bellingham, have received board certification from the American Physical Therapy Association as clinical specialists in women’s health physical therapy.
Only 154 physical therapists across the U.S. were board certified in the women’s health specialty in 2012. The specialization process and certification is administered by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialists.
Board certification designates an advanced level of ability that is awarded only after years of experience and continuing education. The process includes a written case presentation and seven-hour exam after 2,000 hours of clinical practice in women’s health physical therapy.
