Our mission at OSRA Physical Therapy and Hand Therapy is to provide you and your family with the highest standard of quality Orthopaedic care. Our Rehabilitation Team members have earned advanced degrees and credentials to better serve those who entrust their care in our hands. Our commitment to Orthopaedic rehabilitation provides our patients and community with a dedicated team, with over 80 years of combined experience. Our specialties include, but are not limited to, the rehabilitation of:
- General Orthopaedic Problems
- Spinal Disorders
- Fracture Care
- Joint Replacement
- Sports Injuries and Hand and Upper Extremity Disorders
Determine functional deficits through evaluation
Manage the acute stage of dysfunction to prevent chronic pain and/or disability
Restore function through comprehensive therapeutic programs
Improve knowledge to reduce risk of reoccurrence
Physical and Hand Therapists perform evaluations in order to assess the extent and nature of the disability, and to allow formulation of a comprehensive treatment program. Measurements such as range of motion and strength are taken to obtain baseline information on areas of lost function. Evaluation results are reported to all referral sources shortly after assessment. Progress updates are forwarded for follow-up visits to the physician.
Manual Therapy techniques utilize the therapist’s hands to relieve pain, restore mobility of stiff or adhesive joints, and to promote appropriate healing in an operative or injured joint.
Specialized exercise is performed during the treatment program to enhance recovery and functional restoration.
Electrical modalities are utilized to promote healing by reducing edema, relieving muscle spasm and reducing pain.
When indicated, the use of therapeutic heat or cold may be used adjunctively in our treatment programs.
Individualized problem oriented programs are designed to rehabilitate an injured worker’s cardiovascular, musculoskeletal and respiratory systems in preparations for return to work.
Pre-Operative Instruction Programs
Patients who will be undergoing elective surgical procedures, such as joint replacement, are instructed in protocol-based exercise and gait training to facilitate quicker post-operative rehabilitation and return to function.
Custom Splint Molding
Our Hand Therapist custom-makes splints for medically necessary hand conditions. Splints are designed to control movement, prevent deformity, allow a joint to rest, or to help facilitate motion in a specific way.
