About Us

Our focus is to be the BEST not the biggest.

In 1992, Rehabilitation Institute of Wisconsin opened as a high quality outpatient therapy facility specializing in orthopedic physical therapy/occupational therapy treatment, and industrial injury care and prevention.

We have successfully established an outpatient facility conveniently located in the city of Brookfield, WI.

  • 3000 sq. ft. clinic
  • Free parking

Our commitment to excellence in providing the highest quality care is proven by the outstanding therapy outcomes. We use skilled evidence-based treatment in our approach to help you successfully regain your active lifestyle.

Our clinical staff only includes licensed occupational and physical therapists, no assistants or aides. We are committed to provide the highest standard of care. You can rest assure that your treatment will be in the hands of experts.

All of our patients will receive one-on-one care during their entire treatment session. This allows us to fully dedicate our time to designing a rehab program based on your individual needs and abilities.

We have also established many on-site physical therapy/occupational therapy clinics for our industrial clients throughout the state of Wisconsin. We have a proven track record for being the leaders of on-site clinics.

We offer a variety of injury prevention programs to decrease worker compensation costs while continuing to provide the highest quality of rehabilitation services.

Knee injury rehab icon

I had a knee injury and was treated by a therapist at RIOW. I am relieved to have seen positive results with my knee pain. The at-home exercises my therapist assigned me also helped. From the on-site parking to the comfortable atmosphere and professional treatment, my experience was exceptional. I highly recommend RIOW.
