Founded by three partners, Ben Waide, Jason Myers, and Allen Holmes –all of which are board-certified in their respective fields—Liberty Rehabilitation focuses on the treatment of both orthopedic and hand-related issues sustained from on-the-job injuries, athletic injuries, joint replacements, hand injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, motor vehicle accidents, and beyond.

In regards to when and why the business was first started, State Representative-Elect and Liberty Rehabilitation partner, Ben Waide, told iSurf News that, “We opened our doors in June of 2006. We wanted to open our own practice so that we could provide the kind of quality care that we didn’t see at other places. We’ve been busy since day one and we are very grateful to have a business that’s still in operation during these tough economic times.”

As far as specific qualifications go, Waide is a board-certified Specialist in Orthopedic Physical Therapy and a board-certified Hand Specialist. Jason Myers is a board-certified orthopedic specialist, whereas Allen Holmes is a board-certified hand specialist. Additionally, Liberty Rehabilitation also employs talented therapists, Stephanie Crawford and Sarah House.

Interestingly enough, Waide also mentioned that the Liberty Rehabilitation staff recently spent some time with a well-know baseball team, the St. Louis Cardinals, to gain additional insight in the physical therapy field.

“Our staff went and trained alongside the St. Louis Cardinals and brought back a ‘throwing program’ for baseball players in the community,” said Waide. “We hosted free seminars for local coaches and we continue to offer the throwing program free of charge off of our website for any coaches or baseball players that would like to use it. It was specifically designed by the St. Louis Cardinals for young athletes.”

When asked why someone should choose Liberty Rehabilitation for their physical therapy needs, Waide replied that, “When you come to Liberty, you’re going to see the same physical therapist. We ensure that. One of the main reasons we opened our own practice was so we could spend more time with our patients, so I think the focus in our clinic is more personal. We have a very close relationship with the local physicians and the local industry as well. We just want to help people get back to their life as soon as possible.”

iSurf News also spoke with a Mortons Gap, KY resident, Jean Nofsinger, who recently underwent nearly four months of treatment with Liberty Rehabilitation following a second knee replacement surgery in July 2010.

In testament to the quality care and personal-level treatment at Liberty, Nofsinger told iSurf News that, “I had a very, very good experience there. I found everybody to be very kind and very helpful, and I had a great experience and did well.  After coming in and having a low ROM—or Range of Motion— Ben took over and everything worked out well. I just found it to be a really pleasant place, from the secretary on down. I would highly recommend Liberty Rehabilitation.”
