Physical Therapy

Helping to Enhance Our Patient’s Well Being, Function and Quality of Life.

Physical therapy is concerned with maximizing movement potential for people of all ages. When you are referred to a COPC physical therapist, you will not only receive rehabilitative treatment but also guidance and counseling on how to achieve your mobility goals.

Your physical therapist will work with you to devise a plan that will help to meet your needs whether they are to improve your balance and walking, or to get back into the game. You will receive motivation and direction during your appointments as you work and progress back to full function.


What you will need to bring to your visits

  • Shorts or loose fitting pants for back or lower extremity evaluation.
  • Loose fitting top or tank top for neck or upper extremity evaluation.
  • Supportive, sturdy shoes such as athletic shoes.
  • Minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian for the their first appointment.
  • Reading glasses if needed.

What to expect at your first visit

Your first visit will consist of an evaluation/examination and may also include treatment and exercises. Plan on 45-60 minutes for this first visit. Follow up appointments will be scheduled after the evaluation. A plan for additional visits will be developed jointly between the Physical Therapist and patient and scheduled at that time.


If you need to reschedule your appointment, please call COPC Physical Therapy at (614) 392-2812. Please give at least 24 hours notice if possible. Also, please arrive 10 minutes early for additional paperwork related to your condition if you have not completed it in advance.

Program Testimonials

This is a great team of physical therapists. They are very knowledgeable and patient friendly. They work well together as a team. They more than met my expectations and I achieved my goal.

PTS were wonderful. They really strove to optimize my mobility within constraints of physical limitations. Really made me hopeful I could improve (and I did). Delightful caring providers.

I've also had physical therapy at 2 different OSU sites and also at OrthoNeuro. In addition, I've had occupational therapy. COPC is far and beyond the best location I've been to and that is because it was one dedicated therapist to one person with no one asking my therapist for help or needing them for something else. It isn't that they weren't good therapists at these other location;, it was because they had multiple clients and responsibilities and they didn't focus on one single client at a time. Lindsey didn't just send me off to do my exercises; she watched and corrected my form. She is very encouraging, warm and caring. I am grateful to have had her as my PT. Kudos to Lindsey and the Westerville staff.

Very positive experience! I appreciate all the helpful exercises and tools to help me with caring for my back. Very kind staff, always took me back right on schedule and worked with me to get out on time to work. Thank you, Jacob and Lisa!

All personnel extremely knowledgeable, kind and helpful! Loved my experience and world return again if the need should rise again. Thank you for this wonderful experience! - D.K.

Very friendly people. Made it a pleasure to be there, even in pain! - R.S.

I received excellent treatment and with within four weeks I felt so much better and was able to sleep thru the night. Lindsey showed me quite a few exercises and the results were more than i had expected. Lindsey was great! - L.W.
Both therapists (Mary Kay and Chrisite G.) were very thoughtful and skilled in analyzing my stability and gait issues, and devising exercise routines that provided helpful therapy in office and at home. Both therapists couldn't have been more helpful in guiding me, answering questions and, at my request, providing additional help in improving my use of a walking cane. - M.D.

Ms. Laura was not only helpful and very knowledgeable in my care, but she was fun, polite and overall wonderful. She was patient with me and very professional. I would recommend her to others. - B.P.

It's been a long road since my accident, but with Lisa's help I have overcome all the obstacles. No pain, no gain, and yes, there was pain, but I overcame it and I thank Lisa for all her support!!! - M.S.

Lisa was a wonderful therapist. She was very courteous and explained everything she was doing and how to do the therapy at home. I like Lisa very much (she was so sweet and friendly). If I have therapy again, I would like her again. - M.H.

Lisa made me feel like family. She understood my problem and took care of it the best she could Lisa and the staff made me feel right at home. Thanks so very much! - Michael

An incredible experience. I can't tell you how much better my shoulders feel now compared to before physical therapy. I could not imagine going any where else for any future therapy needs. You Guys Rock!!! - Larry

Mary Kay & Lisa, I want to thank you both so much for working with me and teaching me exercises that have increased the mobility of my neck. You were both so caring, engaging and understanding. - Char

Everyone was just great and understanding. I would strongly recommend to everyone. - Matt

My therapist helped me find ways to relieve my pain. She was patient and empathetic when I became discouraged. She coached me as she treated me. She is a great coach for us older patients. - Harriett

The healing of my physical problem began with my first visit to Westerville Physical Therapy. The therapists were friendly, excellent and skilled. The exercises I did and the stretches they gave me worked very well and healed my problem. I recommend to them to everyone. - Elizabeth

To the staff at Westerville physical therapy: I want to thank you for the therapy and the results have been so good. My walking in to the stores like Kroger and Kohl’s without the help of a cane or electric scooter has given me back my independence to get around. My outside walking is up to half a mile and I will keep increasing until I get back to the two mile path. I can’t begin to thank you for all the ways you helped me. - Otto

Thank you so much for the help you gave me. It’s like a second chance on life. With my arm and shoulder, I wasn’t able to write and when I did write, you couldn’t read it. I am improving in a lot of things. Once again, thank you. - Carol

The therapy staff made my sessions less painful with their great attitudes. - Amy

The physical therapists helped improve my balance. They were professional and personable. I felt they really cared about helping me. I'm still doing my exercises at home and keeping my balance! My grade for them is an A+. - Cherie

What a nice group of people! The exercises were well-explained and well-demonstrated. The handouts were specific so I could continue at home. With their guidance I am much improved and look forward to feeling stronger as I will continue the regimen they built for me. I have had therapy at another facility a few years ago. The COPC Westerville experience was far superior because the staff was enthusiastic, caring and knowledgeable. I really felt they listened to me. - Marilyn

Christie is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. She was able to address my physical concerns alleviating pain through strength training and basic stretching. A few weeks of physical therapy provided more relief than months of chiropractic adjustments!! - Eric

My overall experience with this facility and my therapist significantly exceeded my expectations. It literally was what the doctor ordered in terms of addressing my symptoms.- Kim

I really cannot adequately express how much I appreciate the care I received. (The Physical therapists) were caring, professional and made the experience so pleasant. They were encouraging and helped me so much. I also appreciate the tips and instructions that I can use as I continue to heal. - Delnah

These guys saved my sanity and gave me my life back. I'm a lifetime jogger who couldn't run three feet. But after 12 sessions, I'm back to running with new habits for stretching that should extend my running career. - Mike

Thank you Mary Kay and Christie for your expertise and great bedside manner to get me on my feet. I'm now able to drive and run long distances. You gave me my sanity and life back.- Mike

Christie and Laura are fantastic. They explained everything clearly, and were very interested in my recovery. If I ever need PT again, I will go there because of them. I felt cared for and valued by both of them, and noticed they treated every single patient in the same caring manner. Honestly, I'm happy I am finished and pain free BUT I will miss the two of them. - Marjorie

I wanted to do an evaluation of your physical therapy system, because I found it to be so outstanding. My therapists were knowledgeable and competent. Cindy in particular has such an encouraging style. I have been, as a psychologist, a consultant to another physical therapy group and I just wanted to complement from Terie at the front desk to whomever I saw working, the work ethic, cooperation and camaraderie of your staff. - Suzanne

Excellent and compassionate facility. I haven't felt this good in years thanks to the intuitive care of my therapist. I thought I would have to live with this back pain, but now I know I can use the tools I learned here to prevent it. Thank you! - Cindy

My experiences with the therapist were both educational and helpful. I very much appreciate it. They did an excellent job. - Jamie

My first time in physical therapy was a good experience. My leg problems improved so much. Thank you to the physical therapists. They all do a great job. - Beth

The physical therapists I had were absolutely wonderful. I enjoyed coming here for my sessions. - Teresa

Excellent experience all around....everyone was tremendous and it exceeded my expectations from a patient comfort level perspective. - Sam

I've had physical therapy for back problems elsewhere in the past. COPC was by far the best experience I've had. All of the staff works together collaboratively, each is knowledgeable, attentive, thoughtful as to each step of therapy. Mary Kay Rohrkemper is a true expert in her field. I trusted her wisdom,advice and appreciated her managerial expertise with the other therapists. - Suellen

I had such a great experience at COPC Westerville. The staff was wonderful, patient, courteous, thorough and very educational. The therapy I received and at-home exercises helped my shoulder and elbow issues immensely. I can't believe the progress made with their help!!! Thank you!!! - Blake

The entire staff was very professional and demonstrated a caring attitude that put my needs at the center of the therapy. There was teamwork, others came to help when needed. Overall a very impressive group. - Craig

My physical therapist was exceptional! Very respectful, friendly and knowledgeable. - Cynthia

Cindy is a very good physical therapist. She listens, assesses the issue, creates a program that works for the patient and she explains everything in clear and understandable terms. She is kind and compassionate. I have recommended this facility to several friends, one a physician. - Tina
