OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

 
Our physical therapy & occupational therapy department is dedicated not only to treating the patient, but also to building a strong relationship with the physician to create a continuum of care, from initial therapy evaluation and treatment all the way through The Acceleration Program.

We offer physical therapy services at 5 convenient northern Kentucky and Ohio locations: Edgewood, Florence, Highland Heights, Eastgate, and Anderson, and occupational therapy/hand therapy at 4 Ohio locations: Eastgate, Anderson, Kenwood, and West Chester. Each physical therapy location is staffed with highly trained physical therapists and physical therapy assistants, and each hand therapy location is staffed with therapists who have completed advanced training and certification in the treatment of injuries specific to the hand, wrist, and elbow. Our therapists work with patients to restore function and help them through the recovery process, treating a variety of conditions in patients ranging from athletes who need to return to sports after an injury to patients recovering from surgery.

Our physical and occupational therapists are always striving to be on the cutting edge of new techniques and treatments and work directly with our physicians to achieve the best patient outcomes available. They continue their education by observing the physicians in the clinic and attending continuing education seminars each year. This helps them adjust their models of rehab to provide the best all-around care.
