To reach maximum improvement following an orthopaedic injury or surgery, physical rehabilitation is often required. OSS Health offers comprehensive physical and occupational therapy services at the OSS Powder Mill campus and the OSS East office to meet the needs of all our patients.
OSS Health Rehabilitation offers specialized services for spine, joint, sports medicine, upper extremity, and hand problems, as well as general orthopaedic problems. Therapy hours are as follows:
- Monday - Thursday 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
- Friday 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
- Saturday 7:30 to 11:30 a.m.
Each of our therapists has completed an extensive course of study to enable them to evaluate specific problems and design individualized treatment programs to aid in recovery. In addition to traditional therapists, OSS has two Certified Hand Therapists on staff who use specialized skills to assess and treat hand injuries/illnesses. We also offer work conditioning to safely return injured workers back to their jobs.
For back and neck pain, our physical therapists are trained to use the McKenzie Method, which uniquely emphasizes education and active patient involvement in the management of their treatment in order to decrease pain quickly, and restore function and independence, minimizing the number of visits to the clinic. OSS Health has been chosen as the host site in south central Pennsylvania for the McKenzie Study Group.
Our aquatic program is very popular among patients. Pool therapy has proven to be an effective form of therapy for those who need non weight-bearing exercises. We can accommodate the very acute patient or competitive swimmer. Range of motion exercises can be performed post surgically with an aquatic program to increase mobility. This service is available at the Powder Mill Road campus in York.
Conditioning Plus Program
Our Conditioning Plus Program is designed for the continuation of a current exercise program designed by an OSS Health physical therapist. The existing exercise program is continued without interruption following the completion of physical therapy sessions. The Conditioning Plus Program is staffed by our team of certified personal trainers.
The OSS Health therapy team utilizes a team approach that includes the physician, the physical therapist, the physical therapist assistant, and exercise technician to provide each patient with his/her own unique therapy program. Whether the goal is to improve movement, increase strength and endurance, reduce pain, or be better educated in managing a difficult condition, the staff has the expertise necessary to help patients reach their specific goals.
