Premier Physical Therapy is proud of our collaborative relationship with The National Multiple Sclerosis Society, which has developed a program known as Partners in MS Care. Through this program, individuals with MS have greater opportunities to access quality care by recognizing providers who are committed to the care of people with multiple sclerosis.
Premier Physical Therapy is honored to be recognized as a Partner in MS Care for rehabilitation professionals. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society believes Premier Physical Therapy therapists have proven their extensive knowledge in evaluating and treating people with MS. Our therapists have experience with the changing needs of patients with MS and are able to provide education about the disease as well as assessment and management of symptoms.
As a Partner in MS Care, we also collaborate with other health care professionals in the Greater Cincinnati community to provide the best quality of care to individuals with multiple sclerosis. This allows coordination of treatment with physicians and other health care professionals serving our patients. Visit the National MS Society online for more information and helpful resources.
Aquatic Fitness Program: Aquatic fitness can enhance the overall health of individuals affected by MS. It also can reduce fatigue and improve balance, muscle flexibility, and strength.
The University of Cincinnati Campus Recreation Center is home to the free Aquatic Fitness Program for people with multiple sclerosis, a joint effort of the Recreation Center and the Waddell Center. The pool, which is kept at 82 degrees, has zero-depth entry, stairs with railings, and a chair lift. It is housed in a handicapped-accessible, patient-friendly facility.

Restorative Yoga for MS:
Restorative yoga is a series of gentle poses and breathing techniques to focus the mind and work the body. This class is individualized, non-competitive, and adaptable for all individuals. Restorative yoga will emphasize alignment, which benefits posture and balance, and helps release tension so that the body feels more energized while the mind feels calm.
