Vicki and Ron Gideon are sharing a secret.

Vicki and Ron have lived in the Oswego area for fifty years. 

"We think this is one of Oswego's best kept secrets. We have been here to visit people on one side of the facility but never on the other side of the facility.  So! When we found out it existed of course this is where we wanted to come." 

Vicki and Ron wanted a rehab program that would allow them to return home. After being dismissed for a regional facility they found they were not prepared for going home. 

"This was more than you could expect" Vicki shared.  "We loved how we were able to get in the program. Monday morning Ronnie was at the Hospital by noon we had everything and came to the hospital on Tuesday."  Read More

Therapy can improve mobility. If you’re having trouble standing, walking or moving—no matter your age—physical therapy can help. Stretching and strengthening exercises help restore your ability to move. As a Physical Therapists  I can properly fit individuals with a cane, crutches or any other assistive device, or assess for orthotic prescription. By customizing your individual care plan, whatever activity that is important to your individual life can be practiced and adapted to ensure maximal performance and safety.

Therapy can improve your balance and prevent falls . When you begin physical therapy, you will get screened for fall risk. If you’re at high risk for falls, as a therapist I will provide exercises that safely and carefully challenge your balance as a way to mimic real-life situations. At Oswego Community Hospital we help you with exercises to improve coordination and assistive devices to help with safer walking. When the balance problem is caused by a problem in a person's vestibular system, Physical therapists can perform specific maneuvers that can quickly restore proper vestibular functioning, and reduce and eliminate symptoms of dizziness or vertigo.
