Our Sponsor Spotlight blog series will feature stories from our wonderful sponsors. This month we welcome Oxford Physical Therapy to the blog!
Happy New Year from Oxford Physical Therapy Centers, the exclusive physical therapy provider for Susan G. Komen Greater Cincinnati! We hope that your 2015 is off to a happy and healthy start. We have an exciting announcement to share with our friends at Susan G. Komen Greater Cincinnati!
We offer a wide array of therapy methods and modalities from orthopedic injuries to general low back pain, but most recently we have started our lymphedema treatment program at our Montgomery Center! Liz Reis, PT, DPT, CSCS, CLT, has begun working with patients who are suffering from lymphedema. Lymphedema is an accumulation of protein-rich fluid, often manifesting in the arms or legs. It is a chronic condition which may worsen if not addressed.
You might wonder how physical therapy can help you. During your treatment with Liz and the entire staff at our Montgomery Center, you will receive manual lymphatic drainage (a gentle massage like technique used to increase the movement of lymph interstitial fluid), patient education, therapeutic exercises, and compression (assistance with obtaining garments or wrapping, which is done in our clinic). In addition, we will conduct measurements of swelling, range of motion, and strength. Similar to all of our patients, you will receive an education on home exercise program for continued healing outside of physical therapy.
We welcome the opportunity to discuss with you how we can help you through this stage of symptoms. Please feel free to contact Liz at our Montgomery Center (located near the Melting Pot in Montgomery) by calling 513.469.1444.
As a reminder, if you have any other type of pain/injury, we provide FREE injury screens at all our 14 locations in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. Feel free to stop by during our hours of operation, as a doctor’s prescription isn’t necessary for physical therapy and we can still bill through your insurance!
