Welcome to Active Wellness LLC, located in downtown Corvallis, Oregon. Established in July 2019, Active Wellness is an independent private practice providing hand occupational therapy for Corvallis and the surrounding community. This clinic is dedicated to keeping you and your hands active.
The Active Wellness clinic provides ease of access to the free local bus transportation system at 5th and Monroe. Bicycle parking is accessible in the front of the building. Walking to this clinic is possible with the central downtown location close to coffee shops and cafes. Car parking is available in designated parking lots or on the streets of downtown Corvallis. Ease of transportation is only one factor for choosing a therapy clinic. Experience and expertise are other factors to consider. As a resident of Corvallis for over 25 years, I appreciate the quality of life in the Willamette Valley. Over the past 13 years, I have worked in Portland and SW Washington with many skilled and gifted hand surgeons and therapists. Now, after many years of clinical practice, I established this clinic to provide both ease of access and quality care closer to home.
Each post will have a tip or reminder for hand care. This initial post shares a most basic element of hand care - hand hygiene. An alcohol-based hand sanitizer is effective for protection from germs. If hands are visibly soiled, then soap and water is the preferred method for hand hygiene. Remember to lather for at least 15 seconds before to rinsing (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2019). Take the time to minimize the spread of cold or flu viruses this winter.
