What is a “Geriatric Physical Therapist”?
Geriatrics is the branch of healthcare focused on the needs of people who are 65 years or older. A clinical specialist in geriatric physical therapy is certified by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties. The GCS designation is used to identify board-certified geriatric clinical specialists, as they have specialized knowledge and advanced clinical proficiency in geriatric physical therapy clinical practice.
