Relieve pain with phsyical therapy Troy’s Physiotherapy Associates’ therapists love what they do BY LINDY WAGNER iN75 Editor TROY — If you or anyone you know is living with pain, a trip to Physiotherapy Associates in Troy could be the answer. “We want to be known in the community,” said clinic director Allison Schmidt. “If you or anyone you know has pain or difficulty with your daily activities, we can help.” The clinic, which has been located at 1201 Experiment Farm Road, Suite F, for the past 10 years, treats muscle and joint pain, post-surgical conditions, weakness or loss of motion, soft-tissue injuries, chronic pain/fibromyalgia, sports injuries, industrial injuries, and balance and walking disorders. Though the clinic is located in Troy, it welcomes patients from Sidney, Piqua, Tipp City and surrounding areas. Why choose PT? Physical therapy can help people return to their previous level of function,

relieve pain and discomfort and develop an understanding of their condition. Physiotherapy Associates of Troy’s treatment philosophy is “individualized one-on-one care with a hands-on approach to improve overall strength and function, along with education to maintain their improvements, and give patients the power over their pain. Our focus is on improving strength, structure and mobility, while minimizing pain and symptoms through use of manual therapy and treatments to minimize the use of medication.” Schmidt, a physical therapy assistant, has been with Physiotherapy Associates in Troy for almost two years. She graduated from the Professional Skills Institute in 2008 with an associate degree in applied science. Personal experience “I was introduced to physical therapy and became a believer after the second time I sprained my

ankle playing high school soccer, resulting in my family physician to refer me to physical therapy for rehabilitation of my ankle to return to the sport I love,” she said. Schmidt started working in the physical therapy field in 2003 as a therapy tech after graduating high school from Greenville Senior High while beginning her college studies at the University of Toledo. She has a wide range of experience including orthopedic, respiratory, neurological and geriatric rehabilitation. “I work hard to make each individual patient comfortable and at ease when coming to our facility for therapy,” she said. “We are here to educate our patients and give them the tools and knowledge they need to decrease pain, increase mobility and return to their prior level of function, all while feeling at ease and comfortable in our hometown, friendly facility.” When she’s not busy at the clinic, Schmidt enjoys gardening, crocheting, cross county motorcycle rides, planning her wedding and spending time with her family and friends. Equipped clinic The clinic area has three treatment tables with ultrasound and Estim machines, which are used for muscle stimulation and reducing pain and swelling. Exercise equipment includes a treadmill, weight machine, Total Gym, stationary bike, free weights, resistance bands and multiple tools for bal-


Allison Schmidt, clinic director at Physiotherapy Associates, demonstrates a technique she uses to relieve pain. Physical therapy can help several types of pain, including injuries, medical conditions and surgery. ance training. The clinic also has a private traction room. People can come to Physiotherapy Associates in one of two ways. Most commonly, patients are referred by doctors or given a prescription for physical therapy. Any doctor, including surgeons, family doctors and dentists, can refer people for therapy, and Physiotherapy Associates also accepts direct access patients, meaning anyone can stop in and see about being treated without a doctor’s referral. Some stipulations do apply. Direct access pa-

tients can only be treated for up to 30 days, and not all insurance plans cover direct access physical therapy. If a patient cannot be treated, he or she will be referred to a doctor. What to expect No matter how you get to physical therapy, the first step is always an evaluation. Your physical therapist checks out everything, including mobility, alignment, strength and balance, and then comes up with a list of problems and a treatment plan. The therapist communicates findings and the patient’s progress back to

the patient’s doctor throughout the process. Patient testimony Dorothy P., of Casstown, is a former patient at Physiotherapy Associates. “Never having been to physical therapy before, I must say that my experience at Physiotherapy Associates far exceeded my expectations,” she said. “Their caring, professional staff provided a warm and relaxing atmosphere to help with my healing process. From the very beginning they devoted their time and knowledge to my • See Therapy on page 3

Allison Schmidt and Kevin Strayer are truly wonderful physical therapists — cheerful, compassionate and dedicated. “After I finished with physical therapy, I joined their after-care program,” she continued. “In this program, I have full use of the exercise equipment. They provide me with instruction on the proper use of the equipment to ensure I am using it correctly. I find exercising in this leisurely environment very enjoyable and relaxing. Definitely Physiotherapy Associates is an asset to the city of Troy.” A job well done Schmidt knows she and her staff have done their jobs well when previous patients stop by for visits. “I love when patients return after their last session and tell me something new they were able to complete at home that they previously had not been able to do for weeks or months prior to beginning therapy, such as a long walk around the neighborhood with their spouse or returning to a recreational sport that

they enjoy, such as golf or softball,” Schmidt said. “It makes me know we did a great job when our staff is on their mind enough to want to stop in,” she continued. “Physical therapy is my passion. I work here because I love our patients and what I do. We have a wonderful staff that has become a small family and also loves what they do.” Additional staff In addition to Schmidt, Kevin Strayer also works at Physiotherapy Associates. He graduated from the Ohio State University in 1994 with a Bachelor of Science in physical therapy and world management. He has spent his career in outpatient orthopedics, neurological and industrial physical therapy in both hospital and outpatient settings. He enjoys working with patients from age 10 to 110. Strayer has attended continuing education work on areas such as “When the Foot Hits the Ground Everything Changes,” “The Spine from Neck to Sacrum,” “Theraputic Modalities: An evidence-based approach,” “Management of the Industrial Athlete,” “The Shoulder Complex” and “The Hip and Knee

and the Connection Between Them.” “I enjoy meeting new patients and getting to know them as a person, not a diagnosis, and watching them progress from being unable to do what they enjoy due to pain or loss of function and return to an enjoyable quality of life,” he said. Strayer is a father of two sons and one daughter, and enjoys football, basketball, playing with his kids, train memorabilia, traveling and U.S. history. Patient service manager Vicky Ahlering-Flory offers excellent customer service to the clinic’s clients. She has more than 30 years of experience in the health care field. Schmidt said she is always focusing on the needs of the patients and going above and beyond to put patients first. She enjoys quilting, fishing, spending time with her “grand babies” and family vacations. Physiotherapy Associates in Troy is open Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Tuesday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information, call (937) 332-9800 or visit

Apple Tree Gallery now carries jewelry Downtown Piqua store all set with bunnies and chicks for Easter, too PIQUA — Apple Tree Gallery now is carrying the Trezo Jewelry line at the downtown Piqua store. Trezo Jewelry is an inexpensive line of mainly vintage-inspired necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings. Most of its pieces are metal, while some also feature leather. Customers will find jewelry in silver and gold colors, as well as other colors as new pieces will be introduced periodically at the store. Apple Tree Gallery owners Gary and Shirley Anderson travel to a market show in Atlanta each January, and weren’t looking for a jewelry line to bring back to Piqua. They’ve been going to the show for more than 12 years and usually find new goodies to bring back to their customers. “It’s a week of being on your feet all day, but it’s a lot of fun and we get to see people we work with and find out what’s new,”


The Trezo Jewelry line (above) is now available at Apple Tree Gallery in Piqua. The line features inexpensive necklaces, bracelets, earrings and more. Apple Tree is ready for Easter with an egg-shaped tree by artist Dennis Bauer (at right) and other springtime figurines and decorations. Shirley said. The Trezo line is made by a floral company Apple

with birds’ nests, egg and jelly bean ornaments and other spring things. Shirley said garden items have been popular lately, and Apple Tree has some pottery featuring tulips, birds, wheelbarrows and fences in pale pink, yellow and green. Several bunny and chick figurines are available in different poses and colors. “I love Easter because it’s color and it gets you out of the winter mood,” Shirley said. Apple Tree Gallery also recently started carrying Bruce Elsass’ line of items made from yardsticks. Elsass grew up in New Knoxville collecting yardsticks featuring the names of local towns. Eventually he started designing birdhouses, benches, crates, folding stools and more using the yardsticks. “They’re cute for a porch or patio,” Shirley said.

Tree works with, and when a friend they met up with at the show said, “Go for it,” the Andersons agreed. The Trezo Jewelry is displayed in a case near the registers at Apple Tree. “I wanted to start small and work up,” Shirley said. If you see something you like, it’s best not to hesitate because Shirley may only have one other one in stock, though sometimes she can order it in. With pieces priced between $10 and $35, the Trezo Jewelry is affordable. “I’ve always loved vintage jewelry,” Shirley said. “But I try to stay in the middle of the road. It’s not high end; it’s just pretty and fun.”

Apple Tree introduced the line earlier this month, in time for Valentine’s Day, and so far, the response has been positive. One customer took advantage of Piqua’s Ladies Night Out and picked out a necklace and bracelet for her wish list. When her husband came in to buy them, he saw a cross he liked and purchased it for himself. The Andersons may not have intended on selling

DAI exhibit commemorates 1913 flood ‘Storm,’ ‘Watershed’ and ‘Riverbank’ offer artistic view on flood and its legacy DAYTON — The Dayton Art Institute will take part in community commemorations of the 100th anniversary of the 1913 flood with a suite of three special exhibitions on view now through May 5. Cultural and historical organizations from Piqua to Hamilton, with leadership from the Miami Conservancy District, will mount exhibits and host activities commemorating the anniversary of the 1913 flood, an event that changed the physicality and focus of cities along Ohio’s Great Miami River. The Dayton Art Institute will present three exhibitions that offer a distinctly artistic perspective: “Storm: Paintings by April Gornik,” “Watershed: 100 Years of Photography along the Great Miami River” and “Riverbank: Exploring Our River-Centered Development.” “Storm,” “Watershed” and “Riverbank” are exhibited with support from presenting sponsor Jacob G. Schmidlapp Trusts, Fifth Third Bank, Trustee, bene-

factor sponsor the Berry Family Foundation, patron sponsors Wanda and Bill Lukens and Premier Health Partners and supporting sponsor the Dayton Power & Light Company Foundation, with additional support from French Oil Mill Machinery Company. The exhibitions are curated by the Dayton Art Institute’s Associate Director Jane A. Black. “Storm” features the large-scale storm paintings of contemporary artist April Gornik. Her work nearly crackles with the kind of electric, kinetic energy that moves in the air as a storm approaches. Six paintings loaned by Danese Gallery in New York City join the DAI’s spectacular Gornik painting, “The Back of the Storm.” Gornik will be at the museum March 23 at 2:30 p.m. to talk about her work. “Watershed,” based on a new publication by the Miami Conservancy District, pairs historical images of the flood with contemporary photographs

New app showcases aircraft cockpits DAYTON — Look inside some of history’s greatest aircraft with the new ACI Cockpit360 app available from the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force and AeroCapture Images. The free app features high-definition panoramic photos of more than 20 cockpits from many wellknown aircraft on display at the museum, including the B-29 Bockscar that dropped the atomic bomb on Nagasaki, Japan, to end World War II, and the F4C in which legendary fighter pilot Col. Robin Olds and weapons system officer Lt. Stephen Croker destroyed two MiG-17s in a single day during the Southeast Asia War. Several of the aircraft include multiple “nodes,” showing various interior views. “The museum wanted a way to let people see the interiors of these aircraft without comprising their preservation,” said Bryan

Whether you’re a pilot, an avid aviation enthusiast or a student of aviation history, the app gives a true sense of being in the cockpit. From a curator’s standpoint, the app is an entirely immersive means to experience the aircraft virtually during unlimited visits without any adverse impact to the aircraft. “Personally, for myself, the most satisfying element is knowing that aviation enthusiasts with

many “bad” things go into our bodies every day, and with just a few changes, we can turn ourselves back into a true healing process. Eating homegrown and organic is really the best way to start. Beverly provided us with many samples to try and cooked brown rice with steamed vegetables in a rice cooker. It was so good that I went home and ordered a rice cooker of my own, which came yesterday. There are so many quick and easy recipes that you can cook in a rice cooker that I am so anxious to try. I will let you know how it works out. The last couple of years, Mark and I have cut out many bad habits of the food world, and with the guidance of Tammy and Beverly and these lectures, we are on our way to better health.
