Physical Therapy, Aquatic Therapy and More Near Dodgeville

Whatever your age, freedom of movement is so important to overall health, not to mention to your sense of well-being and control over your life. Medical conditions, injuries or recovery from surgery can limit your mobility, cause pain, stiffness and discomfort and generally keep you from the life you love. For older people, loss of mobility and communication can be even more serious, leaving them vulnerable, or simply increasing the chance of a fall or other accident.

Experts in our speech therapy, occupational therapy and physical therapy program in Dodgeville, Mineral Point and Mount Horeb can evaluate and treat a wide variety of conditions that keep you from moving or functioning to the best of your ability. Our highly trained physical, occupational and speech therapists use strengthening exercises, manual therapy techniques and teach ways to adapt to your current abilities to help you live your best life. Restore mobility, relieve pain, improve strength and maximize your performance.

We also offer the region’s only aquatic therapy program, a warm, enjoyable, safe, low-impact method of physical therapy for regaining strength and mobility.

Wanda’s Aquatic Therapy Story

Wanda has dealt with osteoarthritis for many years. It affects her hands, shoulders, lower back, hips, spine and feet. Wanda has also always been a walker, enjoying the daily walks she took in her neighborhood. Her arthritis has progressed in the last two years though, making her daily walks, and even walking down stairs, much more difficult.

“I noticed that I just felt weaker,” she explained. “I needed to go sideways down the stairs.”

Dr. Grieshaber referred her to work with Nate Christopher, physical therapist and certified aquatic therapist. Upland Hills Health had recently opened the therapy pool, and Wanda was an excellent candidate for aquatic therapy.

Wanda has gained strength in her legs and appreciates that she is able to keep up her walking routine, but in warm water, where she doesn’t experience the pain that she feels while walking on land. After a few months of therapy with Nate, Wanda transitioned to using the therapy pool as a fitness walker.

“I love this. I miss my walking, and this really helps me to keep myself going. I have more strength than what I did and I’m thankful for that,” she said.
