Lacombe

PHYSICAL THERAPY Lacombe, LA

History:

We opened our Lacombe clinic in 2017. A local hospital had recently closed, decreasing the local provision of high quality physical therapy. Previously many Lacombe residents would travel to our Covington location for physical therapy. However, as traffic patterns in the parish became more congested, that was becoming increasingly difficult for these patients.

By opening our Lacombe clinic, we were able to provide an excellent physical therapy option, close to home for Lacombe residents.

After graduating, Emily returned to Louisiana to practice. Emily’s clinical interests include Orthopedics, Kinesio taping, and Manual therapy.
