Monday morning reminder to do your home exercise program 😉
Merry Christmas Eve from the Wampler Rehab family to yours! We’re wishing you all a safe, warm, and love-filled holiday. ❤️🎄
Newsworthy or not, we value all of the work our therapists do. Although... it is nice when the public finds it newsworthy 😉 glancing back at this article written about the Y in Staunton and the great work Lee Baker is doing with the Parkinson’s program! He saw a need for treatment after insurance benefits ran out, and did something about it. We love therapists who love fixing problems! @ Wampler Rehab
PSA: our internet is down! We are currently unable to take phone calls or use our scheduling system. We’re working on fixing it, but in the meantime we just wanted to apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience!
Chronic pain and pain management is a hot topic in the healthcare field at the moment, largely due to the opioid and addiction crisis. Fortunately, PT is a safe alternative for pain management. Studies have shown that people who exercise regularly have a 28% reduction in overall pain (APTA) and even an hour long education session about movement and pain can reduce pain. .
Thank you all for your patience with the construction on reservoir street today! If it’s more convenient, please feel free to park in the lot across from the paved lot. Call us at 540-434-9267 for questions!
Our little office plant family is growing!! When you’re inside all day, you gotta find little ways to bring the outdoors in 😅
Happy Friday everyone!

See any problems here? If your feet look like this, there could potentially be a simple fix for foot, ankle, knee, or hip pain you’re having. The right support (meaning either good shoes, custom orthotics, or both) could be a game changer if you over pronate - like the folks in these photos do. Fortunately, we can help you with all that!
As always, DM us, call, or swing by if you have questions!

It is nap time yet? The floor is looking awfully comfortable... JK, just time for mat work in our neuro-wellness club. Practicing getting on and off the floor can prevent the more mature individuals from having to call the rescue squad in case of a fall!
If the wise man builds his house upon a rock, then a PT builds recovery on correct pelvic posture.
Pelvic posture is your spine’s foundation, affecting the mechanics of the rest of he system. Incorrect pelvic posture can cause low back issues, groin pain, poor neck posture, bulging discs, limited shoulder mobility... etc. You get the idea.
In the video, one of our PTs is teaching a patient how to find a neutral pelvic posture during an ab exercise.
Coming soon: Wampler’s Gait Clinic for Amputees! Starting in May, each Wednesday between 12:00 and 1:30 we’ll be hosting an exercise class for amputees of all experience levels. For more information, give us a call or swing by anytime!
See those pins? We’ve had people from each of those pinned locations come through our clinic, because we’re just that good. 😉
No but really - wherever you’re from, we’re happy you’re here. 🤗
Know anyone looking for a full time job with paid vacation and holidays plus 1/2 health insurance coverage? ...Asking for a friend.
Jk, we’re hiring. The open position is for billing and data entry, and involves lots of typing, dealing with the challenging insurance industry, and (most importantly) caring about the patients you work hard for. Call/email if you’re interested! Contact info is in our bio.
Pop quiz: What do a penguin and Marylin Monroe have in common? Hip weakness! They’re both descriptors of Trendelenburg gaits.
PT students - before reading any further, test yourself and see if you can identify which type of gait this is.
If you guessed uncompensated Trendelenburg gait, bingo! This can be identified by the “Marilyn Monroe” hip dip. This results from gluteus medius weakness in the opposite hip, which is a large culprit of back pain. Uncompensated T. gait is seen much less frequently than its compensated counterpart (the penguin gait).
In our Neuro-Wellness family, there’s a little crazy, a lotta loud, and a lotta love. 💗
Hey all! The phones are working again, so give us a call now if you were unable to reach us before! Sorry for any inconvenience.
Hi Friends! We want to let you know that we are having some problems with our phone lines and currently cannot receive phone calls. Please email us if you have any questions/concerns! Sorry for any inconvenience. [email protected]
Change of plans! Stay home and cuddle up in a blanket because we’re *CLOSING!* ❄️💧Have a safe and warm day everyone ☕️
We’re hoping the only pain in your neck is ignoring the leftover Halloween candy that’s calling your name... 🍫🍬 but in case it’s not, we’ve got some tips.
Start by addressing the problem. Neck pain can come from a variety of postures and activities, such as:
• a pillow that’s too thick
• poor posture and slouching
• muscle tension (from stress or poor positions)
• too much screen time (your head weighs about 12-16 pounds - chew on that next time you’re staring down at your phone).
Ease the pain:
• use firm chairs with good lumbar support
• strengthen your core and upper back muscles to help keep your head on straight and shoulders pulled back
• bring your phone or book up to your face rather than looking down at it
• get a good massage!
Feel free to call us or comment with any questions!
Look Mom, we’re famous! 📸 Yesterday’s weather was perfect for having the Neuro-Wellness Club in the park. Check out the link in our bio to see the WHSV news clip!
Functional therapy is the best therapy! Tommy is working on being steady on his prosthetic while going up large steps so that he can get back to work in his corn chopper. 🚜🌽
Even the boss took a break from work to admire the visitors outside our clinic. Happy Monday everyone - remember to take a minute for yourself today! 🤗
We love summer as much as a snowman loves winter, but we can’t wait for September and the return of the Neuro-Wellness group exercise class! 🧠💪🏽 It will be starting September 4th and running every Tuesday/Thursday from 4:30-5:30. Comment with any questions or to get more details!

Our hand therapists specialize in treatment of injuries and postoperative healing from the shoulder to the fingertips. They often make custom hand splints to aid in the process of recovery.
Terri Miller is one of our occupational therapists and she is a Certified Hand Therapist (CHT). Here she is making a custom brace for a patient while he waits!
We now offer basketball as part of therapy! 😉🏀
Happy Halloween from all of us at Wampler Rehab! 🎃👻🕸🕷💀🦇🎃
Jackie, Paola, and Annette attended a health fair at Purdue Chicken Farm last week! They answered workers’ questions and provided information about services we offer at Wampler Rehab.
Last night we had our first Neuro Wellness Class! This group class is led by Lee Baker, PT, who is LSVT Big certified and a certified instructor for Parkinson Wellness Recovery. Lee has been focusing on treatment of people with neurological conditions since 1984.
Our Neuro Wellness Class is offered in four-week sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:30-5:30pm. We have space for six participants and the cost is $40 per person. To participate you must have a referral from the doctor and a screening performed by Lee prior to initiation of the program.
Our current class is full but our next session will start November 7th! Feel free to call us with any questions. 540.434.9267
We are putting the finishing touches on our newly renovated exercise area, formerly our pool space!
NO DIVING - HARD WATER.
