What patients are saying

“I want to express my gratitude for your professionalism & support as I traveled the difficult path of a work injury. Workers Comp is a challenging process of losses, changes & little personal choices. Your compassion and your ability to listen made this journey bearable. You utilized your vast knowledge of Occupational Health to develop a personal work hardening program tailored to my physical needs. You offered encouragement, respite and humanity. Your suggestions on medical devises to use at home: ice pack, Thera-Cane & therapy ball were wonderful. I also appreciated the work behind the scenes with getting approval from Worker’s Comp. I would highly recommend you to anyone. Thank you for all your insights and help.”

“I am writing this to let you and everyone at OSI, know how happy I am with the results I received from my rehab therapy. Lisa Hanselman, ( my main therapist ) was able to guide and encourage me to get my right shoulder to have a motion and strength that I never felt I would achieve. I have been through a lot of therapies since 1973, all around the county and been to a lot of different facilities for therapy, but none have been as caring and instructive to achieve the end result that I received. Not only did Lisa and Sue do a great job, but I watched all of your team treat every one of the patients with the same caring and professional attitude that is missing from the other facilities I have been to.”

“Lisa has been a wonderful therapist. She has helped me be strong and has done a great and thorough job educating me on how my body works. She has been wonderful beyond words.”

“The work center program at OSI is the reason I am able to go back to work. Thanks a bunch!!”

“Lisa was wonderful! She changed my life and reminded me how to get reacquainted with my “core.”
