Outpatient Physical Therapy
When an injury or health disorder strikes at muscles, bones or joints, we are ready to swing into action to help you return to your sport, job or other activities. While we offer acute inpatient therapy to rebuild function in such areas as walking, eating and dressing, the Rehabilitation Institute of Ohio (RIO) physical therapy is also available on an outpatient basis through seven convenient satellite locations. Our knowledgeable, caring professionals can guide you expertly through a program to increase strength, improve range of motion, relieve pain and restore function.
Our physical therapists are trained in rehabilitation for conditions and injuries including:
- Sprains – injuries to the ligaments of the ankle or knee
- Rotator cuff injuries – tendonitis or impingement in the shoulder joint
- Tendon injuries – including Achilles tendonitis and patellar tendonitis
- Multiple trauma
- Stress fractures – to bones, often in the foot, leg, pelvis or spine
- Problems with body mechanics or posture
- Muscle strains – pulls of the hamstring, groin or hip flexor, and low back pain
- Incontinence – involuntary leakage of urine
- Pelvic pain – in the lower abdomen area
- Exercise-induced asthma – when airways to the lungs narrow as a result of exercise
- Concussion – traumatic brain injury
- Joint replacement – knee, hip and shoulder—post-operative therapy
- Lymphedema – upper extremity
- Arthritis and other degenerative joint diseases
Our physical therapists—highly trained and licensed health care specialists, including sports-certified physical therapists—use state-of-the-art therapies to help you return to optimal health. These treatments may include:
- Aquatic therapy
- Electric stimulation
- Heat and cold
- Strengthening and stretching exercise
- Therapeutic exercise
Our Aquatic Program offers one of the area’s few warm-water therapeutic pools at Miami Valley Hospital. Take advantage of the pool as a community member, continuing your exercise after discharge from therapy; in group programs, where stretching and strengthening in warm water reduces chronic pain; or at the individual level, with programs specifically for such conditions as acute and chronic pain, arthritis and other debilitating disorders.
We are proud to report that nationally bench-marked outcomes for physical therapy and sports medicine have shown that people reduce pain and increase mobility in fewer visits here than at comparable facilities.
