OSI Physical Therapy is celebrating over 30 years of service, becoming a leading force in orthopedic rehabilitation, health and fitness and injury prevention. With this as its core focus, we opened our doors in a small Stillwater, Minnesota building along side other medical professionals.
Growing quickly, we had to resort to leasing space across the parking lot in the back of “The Broaster Hut,” a local chicken restaurant, to house our exercise facility. Unfortunately, our patients had to walk the hundred feet or so, sometimes with crutches and walkers, to get there. But they did so with smiles, simply knowing they were on their path to recovery.
From those humble beginnings 30 years ago, we’ve grown from that small office with the whirlpool in the lobby to eleven clinics and two fitness facilities in and around the Twin Cities metro area and western Wisconsin. Each serving their communities with a broad range of preventative, rehabilitative and consulting services.
Mike Ripley, OSI owner, is more than passionate about the breadth of resources we offer. “We are so grateful to the wonderful communities we serve, the physicians who support our practice and the literally hundreds of thousands of patients we have had the pleasure to treat over the years. Helping keep people active and living the best they can, is more than just our mission. It’s our promise.”
