Outpatient Orthopedic Rehabilitation

If you have an orthopedic condition that requires physician visits and/or surgery, those steps are often followed by outpatient physical therapy. As part of the treatment process, our rehabilitative specialists will work with your provider and you to create and implement a therapeutic program to help you relieve pain and swelling, more easily accomplish everyday tasks, and return the affected area(s) to its pre-injury level.

Aquatic Therapy


For many patients, undergoing a supervised water therapy program can help them increase motion and advance their recovery time frame so they can begin playing sports or participating in daily activities sooner. Our aquatic therapy treatments feature an underwater treadmill at the University of Northern Iowa Wellness and Recreation Center that’s designed to promote weight-bearing rehabilitation focusing on improving functional movement, such as walking and jogging.

Isokinetic Testing Services


Through our unique Isokinetic Competition Evaluation (I.C.E.) program, athletes are provided with quantitative information about any strength deficiencies existing in their shoulders, knees, and trunk. Using this information, our providers create comparisons of this data using previous baseline tests the athlete has undertaken as well as average values for the patient’s age, gender, weight and height. This helps athletes maximize strength and potential and avoid returning from injury before they are ready, reducing the possibility of future re-injury.
