At each appointment, you will receive hands-on, one-on-one attention from your therapist. Your therapist will assess your pain/injury; decide what specific exercises, manual therapy, or modalities are needed for effective and efficient rehabilitation.

Our goal is to motivate you, help you return to a pain-free, fully functioning lifestyle, and to educate and give you the necessary knowledge to eliminate future complications

Aquatic Therapy Services

Fox Valley Physical Therapy & Wellness Clinic is the only clinic in Oshkosh that offers aquatic therapy and exercise.

Aquatic therapy pool
Effectively Treat Your Pain

Fox Valley Physical Therapy is the only private practice in the area that offers a therapeutic pool. Aquatic therapy is beneficial for a variety of medical conditions and uses the physical properties of water to aid in patient healing and exercise performance.

Benefits of Using Aquatic Therapy
  • Buoyancy allows for less pressure  through joints during exercise
  • Decreases muscle guarding and spasms
  • Decreases effects of arthritis
  • Increases circulation
  • Decreases joint pain
  • Decreases inflammation
  • Increases balance, gait, coordination, and flexibility

Dry Needling

We are pleased to announce that we are incorporating dry needling as another option for patient care.

Aquatic therapy pool
Return to an optimum quality of life

Our physical therapist, Stephanie Meyer DPT, received her training through Myopain Seminars. Dry needling is a technique that uses a small filiform needle to stimulate myofascial trigger points and muscles to help manage pain and decrease movement abnormalities. "Dry" indicates that no medication or injection is inserted by the needle.

Dry needling can be used for a variety of conditions including, but not limited to:
  • Chronic Pain
  • Tendinitis
  • Low Back Pain
  • Headaches
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Joint Pain

Treatment Plans

Early intervention, patient education, and proper treatment are essential elements in returning patients to normal function.

Patient being treated

Individual, specialized Treatment Plans are developed for all patients depending on the injury or dysfunction. Treatment plans consist of:

  • Patient education
  • Manual Therapy techniques including, but not limited to, myofascial release, soft tissue, and joint mobilization and muscle energy.
  • Customized Therapeutic exercise for specific musculoskeletal dysfunction
  • Modalities may include electric stimulation, ultrasound, ice/heat, fluidotherapy, whirlpool, phonophoresis, iontophoresis, etc.
  • Individual home exercise programs and self-treatment techniques

Treatment sessions vary from 30 minutes to two hours based on medical necessity. During treatment sessions, we help patients develop internal management of their problems through individualized home exercise programs and self-treatment techniques.

Preventative Programs And Services

These are some of the preventative programs and services we offer.

Kids working out

Communication

We're here to help you!

Kids working out

We work with the entire healthcare community, including area physicians, chiropractors, nurse practitioners, podiatrists, dentists, athletic trainers, insurance companies, and colleagues. We have developed beneficial relationships with these professionals as well. Because of these relationships, the patients' best interest is the center of care.

Communication is key to saving time and money

If the patient is not progressing or is showing signs of regression, our therapists are always available to speak with referral sources to decide if further testing, changes in the treatment plan, or discharge is necessary. These immediate actions save both the patient and the insurance company unnecessary medical expenses.
