How Physical Therapy Helped Me

How Physical Therapy Helped Me – National Physical Therapy Month

As part of our celebration of National Physical Therapy Month, we are highlighting our clients and their stories of how physical therapy helped them overcome their pain.  Here’s a wonderful account from our client Mignon Kohnke.

I was diagnosed with a foot condition that required extensive and frequent exercise to correct it.  While my doctor was able to diagnose this, he was not able to provide any guidance as to the type of exercises I should perform to fix the problem.    Therefore, I turned to Baudry Therapy Center.

Upon arriving for my initial evaluation, I found the entire staff to be professional, courteous and timely.  My physical therapist, Kevin Dessauer, was very knowledgeable and helped  me to learn more about my condition and, specifically, what would be needed to correct it.  He explained everything to me in layman’s terms making it easy for me to understand the correct way to perform each exercise and why each was necessary.

Rich Baudry also participated throughout my therapy sessions  and worked with Kevin to determine my treatment program during each visit as well as my “homework” exercises.  My foot responded quickly to the regiment directed by Kevin and Rich and I was and am thrilled with my progress.

Thanks for the help, Baudry Therapy Center!

The Face of Physical Therapy

At Baudry Therapy Center/BRIO, our business starts with Physical Therapy but it doesn’t end there.  Our goal is to make EVERY client better off for having spent time with us. We seek an overall wellness.  If we succeed, then we consider our mission accomplished!

And now that you know what we do, let me tell you who we see in physical therapy:

  •  Busy house moms: These are the people who drive carpool, take care of the family needs, and have little time for themselves. We help them manage pain and help them develop strategies to stay healthy.
  • High powered business executives: These people live fast, have high stress, and a sedentary work life. Prone to back and neck pains, we help these people eliminate pain, and feel good so they can stay focused on their business.
  • Baby Boomers: The people who have taken the world by storm and created a great life for all of us Americans. We help those who refuse to grow old, stay fit, active, and doing the things they love.
  • Senior Citizens: Known as our finest generation, these people have sacrificed so much for all of us. Now it is time for others to help them take care of  themselves. We help these heroes maintain strength, mobility, and their independence.
  • Teenagers: Our youth, the next generation. We help these adolescents work through the growing pains, build confidence, coordination, and strength, so they can make it to the next level.
  • Weekend warriors: These individuals work hard during the week and play even harder on the weekends. We help you recover, rehab, and get back into the game.
