Dr. Wheeless is a very dedicated doctor. He treated me as if I were royalty. He and his staff are the best and made me feel comfortable. I give them a rating of 20 on a scale of 1-10.
Rehabilitation and Sports Performance
Follow-up physical therapy and training sessions
In addition to our orthopedic offices, we conduct follow-up physical therapy and training sessions at four convenient locations: Wakefield, Raleigh, Cary and Knightdale. The Wakefield physical therapy office is now located in the same building as our Wakefield orthopedic office in the suite right next door. The Raleigh and Cary physical therapy offices are located in the same buildings as our Raleigh and Cary orthopedic offices. The Knightdale physical therapy office is located in the same building as our Knightdale orthopedic office.
OSNC Physical Therapy is proud to now offer aquatic physical therapy at our Wakefield location. Aquatic therapy will be provided in a heated, saline, therapy pool located in the Rex Wellness Center of Wakefield. Aquatic therapy is very beneficial for patients with lower extremity arthritis, low back pain, obesity and any patients who have difficulty with land-based therapy. The buoyancy and resistance properties of water make for a perfect therapy environment. For more information about how aquatic therapy may help you, please call our physical therapy office.
Occupational and Hand Therapy
The Occupational Therapists (OT) and Certified Hand Therapists (CHT) at OSNC are a highly skilled team committed to excellence in the rehabilitation of the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder. They employ specialized skills and therapeutic interventions to enhance an individual's ability to participate fully in daily and work-related activities.
Our occupational therapists also provide education in the use of adaptive equipment, splinting, and ADL re-training prior to total joint replacement, spine surgery, and other major surgeries such as ACL reconstruction and rotator cuff Repair.
Therapeutic massage is the systematic manipulation of soft tissue structures of the body. As an integral part of modern healthcare, therapeutic massage is widely prescribed by physicians to prevent and alleviate pain, muscle spasm and other discomforts caused by injury or activities of daily living. Therapeutic massage reduces stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system and, as a result, increases the body's ability to manage stress, anxiety, and illness.
Massage is an integral part of the post-injury and post-operative protocol. Our Licensed Massage Therapists are highly trained and work in conjunction with our Physical Therapists to carry out the Physician's Treatment plan. Most insurance companies will cover the use of therapeutic massage when employed as part of your doctor's rehabilitative plan.
