Dayton VA Medical Center, Ohio
Kinesiotherapy staff at the Dayton VA Medical Center strives to maximize strength, coordination, and range of motion in our patients so that their level of function and independence is increased.
Kinesiotherapy (KT), the study of human movement, designs exercise programs that are put into practice in order to accommodate the rehabilitative needs of patients who have physical disorders, including injury and disease.
Our staff works with both inpatient and outpatient populations, helping patients through exercise, conditioning, and education. Our goal is to help medically stable patients improve endurance, strength, flexibility, and mobility.
Therapeutic techniques and exercises are implemented to provide the patient with a stepping stone between acute illness and physical wellness.
