We are happy to announce the release of PT Ortho & Sports Questions!

This book was designed to help physical therapists pass the orthopedic certified specialty (OCS) or the sports certified specialty (SCS) examination. This book focuses on the extremities, and contains both review sections and practice questions for every joint. We believe there are overlapping concepts for both the OCS and SCS exam when it comes to the joints, and this book provides content applicable to both examinations.

Passing the OCS or SCS examination is a huge accomplishment. Your pursuit of this specialization is a testament to your passion for our profession and goal of delivering exemplary care to your patients.


  • Over 100 questions related to the evaluation and treatment of foot/ankle, knee, hip, shoulder, and elbow/wrist/hand pathology
  • Detailed answer descriptions with associated citation to support correct answers
  • Short, concise, and evidence-based review sections related to each extremity joint
  • Review sections include information related to basic anatomy, clinical practice guidelines, and evidence related to clinical prediction rules and special testing

John and Cody do it again, I love their series. Questions are the best way to prepare for an exam and these questions are spot on. In addition, the questions are based off of an article important to development of the OCS exam and are on the “Top 100” articles to read. This book, in particular, is a great clinical value because it provides information on test clusters as well as prediction rules, anatomy, pathology, as well as a recap of the most up to date CPG. I keep it in my bag as a reference!

A great resource for OCS! I loved the topic summaries and charts at the start of each unit. The quizzes were helpful, and they helped me get into the test taking mindset before the exam.
