The certification was awarded by the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties (ABPTS), a division of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA). The certification is awarded for demonstrating knowledge and clinical proficiency in injury prevention, evaluation, treatment, rehabilitation and performance enhancement of individuals who are physically active.
Those who receive this advanced certification are considered to have great depth of knowledge and skill in this specialty area of physical therapy.
“Maintaining board-certification is key to demonstrating my commitment to pursuing the highest level of skill with which to best serve my patients,” said Hudson.
Hudson, who also works with Hattiesburg Clinic Sports Medicine, provides sports medicine coverage for local sporting and athletic events. In the clinic, he works closely with sports medicine physicians and orthopedic surgeons to return the athlete to his or her sport or physical activity.
Hudson graduated in 1994 with a Master of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of Alabama at Birmingham and received his Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2012 from the University of Mississippi in Jackson. He joined Hattiesburg Clinic in 1999, providing care at Hattiesburg Clinic’s main facility.
