OVM making waves in therapy

Everyone has heard how great water aerobics can be for a person, especially, if they have limited physical abilities. Aquatic Therapy goes to a new high-tech level and Ohio Valley Manor is bringing it to Brown County. Aquatic Therapy is rehabilitation performed in the water under the instruction of a licensed Physical or Occupational Therapist. The hydrostatic pressure and buoyancy of the water allows decreased pressure on bones and joints, while the added resistance allows optimal strengthening and more rapid outcomes for patients.

Aquatic Therapy has a wide range of uses, from physical fitness, to recovery from a surgical procedure, an injury or disability. OVM is anxious to get it up and going in December. OVM will be the only facility in Brown County with this technology.

Shannon Hazelrigg, Director of Rehabilitation at OVM, said, “This particular pool is a Hydroworx 2000 series. It is definitely a technologically advanced pool. It has a movable floor, an 8’ by 12’ underwater treadmill, resistance-jets and underwater computer cameras to view walking patterns. The warm water allows for increased circulation and relaxation of the joints and muscles to achieve maximal goals. It is an amazing piece of equipment and OVM is thrilled to be getting this pool. The added benefits of using Aquatic Therapy will be priceless for our patients. We are proud to be the first, and only, facility in Brown County to have this therapy.”

“We’re committed to making sure we provide leading edge technology for our patients. When we see something that can help our patients increase bone density, circulation, flexibility, posture, balance, endurance and help decrease depression, stress and pain, we are going to find a way to get that piece of equipment,” said George Balz, OVM Administrator.

Anyone experiencing pain or loss of movement affecting their ability to function can benefit from this therapy. All that’s needed is a referral from a physician.

Sarah Schneider, OVM Marketing Director, said, “ No worries if you can’t swim. The pool offers varying depths to meet the needs of each individual. Patients simply walk or are wheeled onto the floor and lowered to any depth. This eliminates walking up and down steps to enter the pool. Also, you can wear a shirt and shorts or a swimsuit, whatever you are comfortable in. We expect to get a ton of use out of it once the word gets out. Aquatic Therapy is just an awesome form of rehabilitation and we can’t wait to have it open in December.”

Ohio Valley Manor, Inc. is located north of Ripley, on US Highway 62 and 68. OVM healthcare options include Outpatient Rehabilitation and Wellness, Home Health, Short-term Rehabilitation, Assisted Living Community, Memory Care and Long-term Care.
