Summit Physical Therapy has been serving patients in Rogers County for more than 13 years. After originally opening their doors in 1999, owners Bret McGuire and Sean Cox, both doctors of physical therapy, quickly realized their goal of ­providing quality services to the people of Claremore. They have since expanded several times, opened additional facilities in Catoosa and Pryor, added ­pediatrics services, and built a beautiful new, state-of-the-art facility in Claremore. The ­business is still owner-operated and both doctors continue to see patients to this day.

    Sports injury, post-surgical rehabilitation and work injury are just a few of the services ­provided to those with a doctor’s prescription at all three adult Summit locations.  

    With the fall sports seasons upon us, athletic injuries are becoming more common. Summit doctors aid with sports injuries as they volunteer their time on the sidelines at Claremore and Pryor athletic events. Essentially, athletic injuries are orthopedic injuries that are more obvious due to their occurrence during an ­individual’s sports involvement.

    “Our goal for the athlete is to return them to the sport quickly through appropriate rehabilitation programs, and ­prevent re-injuries through ­proper warm-up and training techniques,” said co-owner Sean Cox. “We teach them these ­techniques so they can enjoy their time on the field without worry or pain.”  

    In addition to care for sports injuries, Summit specializes in post-surgical care. As December approaches, many people find themselves scheduling surgeries to meet year-end deductibles. Summit can help with rehabilitation from surgeries to the neck, back, knees, shoulders and hips.

    “Orthopedic rehabilitation encompasses a wide range of injuries and problems involving the joints, muscles, tendons, ­ligaments, bones and peripheral nerves,” said Delayna Trease, Summit marketing director.

    Summit also offers therapy for work injury, including ­workers compensation and industrial rehabilitation. Occupational Therapist Colleen Caton is trained in doing job-site analysis and functional capacity evaluations that apply to the industrial work setting. She can also help employers decrease their risk for problems by ­performing ergonomic ­assessments and assisting with planning for fitness and wellness programs and injury prevention education programs.   

    The doctors at Summit want patients to be aware that the most beneficial thing they can do for their recovery is to start the physical therapy as soon as their doctor will allow.

    “Regardless of the type of injury, the most important ­component of the rehabilitation process is starting as soon as your doctor prescribes you to enhance your best overall ­recovery,” said Bret McGuire, ­co-owner.  “If you wait too long, some damage may not be reversible.”

    In addition to these great services they have long provided their patients, Summit continues to expand to offer new services. One of those is Women’s Health Physical Therapy. Ashleigh Day, MPT and women’s health ­therapist, is trained to help adult women and children with bowel and bladder issues including incontinence, pelvic pain, ­prolapse, chronic constipation and bedwetting. She also treats women for pregnancy-related problems and postpartum.

    Another great service that is open to the public and does not require a doctor’s prescription is Summit’s aquatic arthritis ­classes. This class is perfect for someone suffering from ­arthritis, stiff and sore joints, or who just needs help with muscle relaxation. Classes are held in Summit’s 92-degree warm water pool on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. The cost is $5 per class.
