Achieving Sports Performance After Injury

Doing the same kicking, throwing or swinging movement can cause repetitive motion injuries to the joint and muscles. We treat all types of sports-related and recreational injuries from severe ankle sprains to bone traumas and ligament tears. Our non-surgical treatments improve the healing process and focus on getting you back to peak performance.

Ascension physical and occupational therapists and athletic trainers are at our outpatient clinics, in our Ascension hospitals, at partner YMCAs, and in orthopedic and sport medicine centers, including Midwest Orthopedic Specialty Hospital and Orthopaedic Hospital of Wisconsin.

By providing a wide range of treatments, our patients at any age get customized and compassionate care. You’ll find innovative therapies and modalities including reduced weight-bearing devices such as the Zero-gravity system. Ultimately, it’s the expertise of our therapists and our coordinated efforts with your doctor that makes a difference.

New Pre-Pay Program for Therapy Services

Don’t let rapidly changing healthcare insurance plans stop you from getting the physical therapy, occupational therapy or speech-language services you need. The Ascension Wisconsin Rehabilitation pre-pay program enables you to pay for services rendered with check, cash, or credit card for a very affordable price.

This option provides greater flexibility for patients with different types of insurance coverage:

  • High deductibles
  • A treatment plan that requires limited therapy visits
  • Services not covered by your insurance plan, for example, dry needling or some pediatric therapies
  • Self-pay based on your needs at that time

Patients of all ages can participate in the pre-pay program. For more information, contact an Ascension Wisconsin Rehabilitation Clinic or Hospital near you.
