The Mettler Center takes pride in its "Team Approach" to healing. Our physical, occupational, and licensed massage therapists
work together, helping our patients get back to living as quickly as possible, whether they are recovering from injuries, healing after surgery, or facing chronic conditions.
Cindy Carlson, an occupational therapy patient of Sheila King
, noticed that her recovery sped up when she started working with Jami Taylor
, Mettler's massage therapy coordinator. Massage helped increase the blood flow and soften the tissues surrounding Cindy's shoulder. As a result, Cindy's mobility improved dramatically during her occupational therapy sessions.
"Both therapies have increased my lung capacity, the quality of my sleep, and my overall function and wellness," Cindy said.
She's not the only patient to benefit from the team approach. Sheila and Jami joined forces to help Carol Mazure regain full range of motion in her frozen shoulder. The therapists' great relationship immediately put Carol at ease, too.
"The therapists work and communicate so well together that what I needed the most was done," Carol said. "It will be worth it all
even the pain
to have my full range of motion back."
Area doctors are thrilled when their patients can take advantage of Mettler's dual-technique approach.
Dr. Kathy Miller said: "The team Cindy worked with has done an outstanding job of increasing her range of motion and returning her to more normal function."
Many patients also enjoy having many positive, energetic people, who have different perspectives on their injuries, involved in the recovery process.
"The sessions with Sheila aren't always relaxing," says Susan Fowler. "But I can relax with a massage by Michelle (Conour) and leave feeling refreshed and renewed."
If you or someone you know could benefit from this unique team approach, call the Mettler Center
