The therapy department at MRHC recently welcomed Amy Osbahr, OTR/L, a new occupational therapist. Trained and certified in an array of specialized therapies and experience working with all ages, Osbahr brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to MRHC.
“I have treated a wide range of patients from 3 months old to 105 years old,” Osbahr shared, a testament to her commitment to meeting the unique needs of every individual she encounters.
Osbahr is certified in many different areas from neurological rehabilitation (catering to conditions like strokes, cerebral palsy, and multiple sclerosis) to orthopedics (managing joint replacements, wrist pain, sprains, fractures, arthritis, and more). She is also trained/certified in ASTYM treatment, blood flow restriction Therapy (BFR), LSVT-BIG Parkinson’s management, lymphedema treatment, and vestibular rehabilitation. In addition, Osbahr can perform workstation and ergonomics assessments as well as custom wheelchair assessments.
Additional common occupational therapy services include assisting adults who have difficulties with routine care such as brushing their teeth, getting dressed, feeding themselves, or driving to work.
Pediatric therapy is another area of expertise for Osbahr. She can address conditions such as autism, developmental delays, Down syndrome, muscular dystrophy, and more. Osbahr can also help ensure that children are meeting developmental milestones and progressing as they should, as well as helping with handwriting and behavioral health.
“I’m looking forward to using my skills in this new opportunity, and I am thankful to be part of the MRHC team,” said Osbahr.
A graduate of the College of St Mary’s in Omaha, Nebraska, Osbahr has since dedicated herself to the occupational therapy field, gaining a wide array of skills and certifications over her two-decade career. With over 15 years at RehabVisions, Osbahr has had experience with a variety of specialized therapies within inpatient, outpatient, and home health settings.
Her previous roles have been with the Glenwood Resource Center, Methodist Hospital’s ICU and medical floors, and the psychiatric unit at Jennie Edmundson Hospital. She worked on-site at Smithfield, focusing on work-related injuries and rehabilitation. Osbahr has also worked at numerous nursing homes across Southwest Iowa, demonstrating her dedication to reaching and assisting individuals in need throughout the region.
