Baptist Physical Therapy expands
Baptist Physical Therapy has expanded its facilities at Baptist Jeffersontown, 10216 Taylorsville Road.
An additional 1,500 square feet of space has been added with new features such as a climbing wall, punching bag and other equipment to help the sporty weekend warrior or desk jockey “corporate athlete” to work out the kinks and get back in the game.
The expansion comes just 18 months after the location opened with just Physical Therapist and Clinic Manager Barb Klus on staff. Within seven months, Physical Therapist Mark Robinson was needed. Now, a third therapist, Keyon Thompson, is starting soon.
Growth has been fueled by the therapists’ focus on the whole person – not just the injury or painful area.
An example is Sarah Dinkins, who was referred for physical therapy following the birth of her fourth child. Dinkins was diagnosed by Orthopedic Surgeon Stacie Grossfeld, MD, with arthritis in her lower back. When Dinkins first came for treatment, she could not lie flat on the table. When she left, she was doing Pilates on the (therapy) ball.
Physical Therapist Klus told the 36-year-old that her pelvis was rotated and her right hip was tighter than her left. The pair worked every other day to pull the hip and pelvis into correct alignment.
While her back is still a bit weak, Dinkins said she’s better able to handle the day’s activities, which include home schooling two of her children, plus running marathons. And, she’s more physically prepared for the family’s upcoming move to Kenya as missionaries.
Klus said many of their patients are executives or office workers who find spending hours at the computer a real pain in the neck.
Patients range from the injured cheerleader to an 85-year-old with poor balance.
