Move to new site allows Rock Valley Physical Therapy to better serve Bennington and surrounding areas 

To continue to meet the physical therapy needs and better serve Bennington and its surrounding communities, Rock Valley Physical Therapy is moving. 

Currently located at 15767 C.W. Hadan Drive, Bennington, Rock Valley’s new – much larger home – rests at 8001 N. 157th Street, Suite 103, Bennington and will be available for patients and therapists to “Make Better Lives,’’ together, beginning April 22, 2024. 

“We are excited to nearly triple our space,’’ said Rock Valley’s Raymond “RJ’’ Peitzmeier, PT, DPT, CSCS, Clinic Manager/Bennington. “As the Bennington community grows, we are eager to be able to grow with it. Our new location will allow us to continue to “Make Better Lives’’ for years to come.’’ 

In addition to the new site, the same tremendous, patient-first care brought to life by knowledgeable, compassionate Rock Valley therapists remains in place. Services such as dry needling, manual therapy techniques, sports injury rehabilitation and prevention, and comprehensive rehabilitation after surgery, are offered. Bennington also features two therapists with Titleist Performance Institute Level 1 certifications, both available to work with those interested in improving their golf performance. 

“Our new location will give us the opportunity to provide more treatment rooms, more gym space to allow for more room for running, cutting, and jumping activities with athletes,” added Peitzmeier. “It also allows us to have room for more equipment to enhance our treatment options.’’ 

Rock Valley Physical Therapy’s Mike Stodden, MPT, CIDN, Director of Relationships, and Jeff Zimmerman, PT, DPT, ATC, Regional Manager, played major roles in the new site coming to life. Zimmerman and Stodden, two successful and respected therapists in the Omaha corridor community, helped secure the new facility. 

“When RJ took over as the (Bennington) clinic manager, we saw his passion immediately impact those he treated,” Stodden said of Peitzmeier’s tremendous ability as a therapist and his extraordinary dedication to his patients. “We then added Blake Jeffres, PT, DPT, and now we have two rock stars who are caring, hardworking therapists. The number one predictor of success for any clinic is the people in it.  And we have great talent in the Bennington clinic.’’ 

To celebrate the new space, Rock Valley Physical Therapy is holding an open house/ribbon-cutting ceremony, Wednesday, May 8 from 5:00pm to 7:00p.m. Join Rock Valley Physical Therapy staff, community members and clinic friends to learn about the specialty services available.
