At the Valir Midwest City clinic, our family is friendly, sincere, caring, and willing to help you along your way to recovery. We understand that pain and interruption in daily abilities affects you on all levels, not just the physical. It is our job to connect with you as a member of the larger team, and is also our focus to learn how we can help, and show you how to help yourself.
When you step through our doors, you will find staff to support and motivate you to recovery, and encourage your progress. We teach, correct, tweak, and focus on perfect practice as a way of achieving the goal. Our game plan is willing to flex and change to help you win, and we focus on helping you persevere your way to better health. Part of the fun of rehab is the comradery found in working alongside other injured people in one s tage of recovery or another.
We strive for professionalism. We know that your recovery is serious business. We love what we do, and it is this joy that drives our professionalism. We only feel we have succeeded when we know that you know how to take care of yourself the way we took care of you ourselves. There is nothing more empowering to feel you have the right tools at your disposal, and can fight your own battles if they ever arise.
But most of all, we want you to know that even though your “care” might one day come to an end, it doesn’t mean we stop caring. When you first stepped through those doors, you stepped into our family, and family you will always be.
