About CSRS™

In collaboration with the National Stroke Association, we have developed the field’s only stroke certification program for therapists: the “Certified Stroke Rehabilitation Specialist” (CSRS™).

The CSRS™ is a four-tiered, seminar-based, stroke education program that is designed for licensed physical and occupational therapists of all experience levels. Each, live CSRS™ seminar offers 6.5 hours content and continuing education units (required for therapist licensure in most states). The four-seminar series culminates in an online certification exam administered via a secure website. Successful test completion with a score of 80% or above grants the CSRS™ certification. CSRS™-certified therapists may list the initials “CSRS” behind their professional credentials.

Would You Like a CSRS™ T-Shirt With That?

Made of a canvas blend (really nice, soft, t-shirts), our distressed-gray T-shirts proudly display the CSRS logo on the front, in Winter Blue, with the words, “Certified Stroke Rehabilitation Specialist”™ in black.

On the back appear the words “Eat, Sleep, Treat, Repeat”™ in distressed Winter Blue, overlaid onto a vintage brain rendering. Just below the brain are the words “Physical Therapy/Occupational Therapy”  in black. 

S, M, L, and XL sizes are available, while supplies last. Short-sleeved shirts only available at this time. When you purchase through PayPal, $5.00 S/H will automatically be added to the price. For Ohio-based customers, an additional 7.5% tax is added (per state law – we wouldn’t do this stuff by choice, would we?!)

“Certified Stroke Rehabilitation Specialist,”™ “CSRS,”™ and “Eat, Sleep, Treat, Repeat”™ are trademarks of Neurorecovery Unlimited, LLC and may not be used without express written permission.
