Emilie Boucvalt: PT Superstar
Emilie Boucvalt: Our PT Superstar

As we continue celebrating PT month, we want to highlight another one of our physical therapy superstars: Emilie Boucvalt! Emilie is an active college student, but when knee pain kept her from running she sought out medical care.

Dr. Finstein did surgery on Emilie’s knee to improve her knee alignment and to help her regain function. He recommended physical therapy after surgery and that’s when we met Emilie. Watch her inspiring story!

Emilie’s physical therapy journey has been truly amazing. She hobbled into the BTC clinic on crutches not knowing if she would ever run again. She essentially had to learn how to walk again. Together, we customized a physical therapy program that involved regaining joint mobility and range of motion so that Emilie could reach her goals.  Now, she is working on gaining strength, trunk stability, and conditioning to get her back to running. Her goal is to run the 2016 Crescent City Classic.

Emilie’s determination, focus and goal setting is the reason she is making great progress. She truly is a PT Superstar! We can’t wait to see her running soon.

If you or a friend has had knee surgery, or is just starting to have knee pain, call your physical therapist. We turn “bum knees” into old news.

How Physical Therapy Helped Me: Dick Trueting

For someone like Dick Treuting, staying active is living. So when balance issues started affecting his active lifestyle, his Doctor recommended physical therapy as a solution.

Dick’s goal was to keep playing golf, a sport he’s been enjoying for over 70 years. With a customized physical therapy plan and a lot of hard work, we were able to help improve his strength, agility and coordination of movement so he could continue the sport he loves.  Watch Dick’s inspiring story on how he keeps moving.

The Baudry Therapy Center team is so proud of Dick Trueting and the success he has achieved throughout his physical therapy sessions. Our goal is always to help make our clients’ lives better, so when Dick tells us he can continue playing golf and cutting his grass, we know we’ve succeeded.

Age Well with Physical Therapy

As we age, we naturally lose strength and with strength goes balance. Physical therapists are able to pick up on even the smallest deficits in strength, which significantly affect balance. With a good physical therapy program, balance does not have to be a challenge.

If you or a loved one is having balance issues, lacks confidence walking on uneven surfaces, or has stopped doing things for fear of falling, a course of physical therapy is just what the doctor should order. Call Baudry Therapy Center today!
