Physical Agent Modality Certification
Nebraska regulations require Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants to obtain certification to administer physical agent modalities (PAMs). If you want to administer Superficial Thermal, Deep Thermal, or Electrotherapeutic Agent Modalities you must obtain a certification.
Occupational Therapy Assistants may only be certified to set up and implement superficial thermal agent modalities. Occupational Therapists can be certified in one, a combination, or all three types of physical modality certifications.
