Next Steps

Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy helps to preserve, develop and restore physical function. Therapists evaluate patients to determine the impairments and customize a treatment plan with goals to reach their highest possible functional level. Patients receive education and a personalized home program to help them manage their condition.

The treatment plan may include strategies to resolve pain, problems with walking, posture, or balance, and help athletes with mechanical imbalances and overuse issues to improve performance.

Our goal is to improve the quality of life for our patients by delivering an exceptional patient to customer service experience. Physical Therapists may use various manual therapy techniques to reduce pain, improve mobility, facilitate movement, and restore function. Additional treatment may utilize include:

  • Aquatic Therapy
  • Therapeutic Exercise
  • Therapeutic Modalities (ultrasound, electrical stimulation, heat/cold)
  • Postural education
  • Instrument-assisted soft-tissue mobilization
  • Balance Training

Pool & Aquatic Therapy

Valley View Medical Center's Outpatient Therapy Services includes a pool for aquatic therapy. Certain conditions and injuries are best treated while you are in water. By conducting your treatment session in water that is maintained at therapeutic temperatures, you will have greater control over your movement with less pain as your body is partially supported by the buoyancy of the water. The use of water allows you to function at levels that are not possible outside of this environment, which afford positive physical gains. The ultimate goal of aquatic therapy is to progress you to a more functional, land-based program.

Aquatic therapy is ideal for:

  • Arthritis management/joint pain  
  • Athletic/cardiovascular training 
  • Chronic back pain and lumbar stabilization 
  • Knee, ankle or foot pain/injuries 
  • Musculoskeletal disorders 
  • Spinal cord injuries  
  • Stroke  
  • Amputees 
  • Brain Injury 

An aquatic therapy plan of care can help a patient achieve:

  • Less pain with normal activities 
  • Greater ability to perform the activities that matter most to you 
  • Improved endurance throughout the day 
  • Improved balance and coordination 

Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy helps patients overcome obstacles and regain skills so they can return to home and work-related activities. We enjoy the challenge out work provides, and enjoy helping to maintain peoples safety and independence in their communities. Common treatments include:

  • Treatment of upper extremity injuries (shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand)
  • Therapeutic Exercise
  • Sensory motor processing for the neurological patient
  • Energy conservation
  • Self-care/activities of daily living
