The sports medicine team at Kettering Health Network provides a variety of therapeutic services to get you back in action. Our skilled professionals help you regain your range of motion, improve your strength, and rebound from all types of joint and muscle injuries.

Dance Medicine

The therapists in the Dance Medicine Program are specialized and trained in dance specific equipment for rehabilitation and performance enhancement of the dancer. Our team works with dancers and gymnasts of all ages, as well as the Dayton Ballet, Dayton Contemporary Dance Company, and Kids Are TOPS gymnastics.

Our programs are tailored to meet your individual needs. We offer physical therapy with dance specific exercises using Pilates, the Pilates reformer, and Gyrotonic Expansion. Dancers and gymnasts can continue working with us after completing physical therapy in one of our fitness programs, including combining our Sports Acceleration program with Pilates.

Occupational Therapy and Hand Therapy

Our team is staffed with highly qualified and experienced specialists including occupational therapists and certified hand therapists. Due to the highly complex anatomy of the upper extremity, treatment is enhanced when provided by professionals with specialized training. We treat a variety of injuries and conditions including but not limited to: lacerations, fractures, amputations, neuropathy, tendon or nerve injuries, and arthritis. Treatment methods include therapeutic exercise, edema and pain control, joint and soft tissue mobilization, customized splinting, and activities of daily living training.

Pelvic Physical Therapy

Pelvic physical therapy helps to strengthen the abdominal muscles known as the pelvic floor. These muscles support the bladder, uterus, and rectum and when weakened or injured can cause bladder and bowel control problems, pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic pressure, pain, or discomfort, and chronic prostatitis. We provide private and confidential consultation and treatment with a physical therapist specializing in pelvic floor dysfunctions. Treatments may consist of biofeedback, pelvic floor muscles exercises for rehabilitation, bladder retraining, diet modifications, and lifestyle changes. Ninety percent of urinary incontinence can be significantly improved or cured with proper treatment.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy can help you improve your ability to stand, walk, run, sit upright, and move your arms and legs without difficult. Our physical therapists specialize in orthopedics and sports medicine and we treat all joints including the spine. Any individual wanting to gain more function and return to normal activity - whether that activity is playing a sport or being able to walk at the grocery store - should consult a physical therapist.
