“Welcome to the Lake Area’s Fastest Growing Physical Therapy Clinic, Where We are Helping People Every Day to Live More Active and Pain-Free Lives without Medications or Injections - Providing Natural, Specialized Solutions in a Comfortable and Caring Environment.”

We knew when we started our clinic, Thrive, we wanted it to be different. We worked in the typical, busy outpatient clinic for years before opening our own place. During that time, we knew what qualities we didn’t want to have in a clinic. We just knew that there had to be a better way for patients to receive care and for the therapists to provide care that they can be proud of. So, one day while we were out on a run we decided that we were going to open our own place, and the rest is history!

Our clients tell us that people are always asking them, “What makes Thrive Physical Therapy so special- it’s just people watching you do exercises, right?”

Well, first, we just want you to know that physical therapy (especially at our clinic) involves so much more than just exercise! Here at Thrive, you’ll have the benefit of a totally “hands-on” approach, which could include different techniques like massage, stretching, joint-mobilizations, and even dry-needling. And yes, there will be exercise. But our staff of expert therapists and highly-trained exercise specialists are never “just watching”- they’re talking you through every step, making sure you (and your muscles) are moving right; they’re making adjustments and alignments; and you’ll often find them on a mat or against a wall, demonstrating and doing the work right alongside you!

If you’ve found us here, chances are you’re looking for a better way to manage the pain or stiffness that is keeping you from the life you want - something better than painkillers or rounds of injections or even worse, surgery. Maybe you just want to garden without pain. Maybe you’re aiming to complete a triathlon. No matter what your health or fitness goals, physical therapy IS your BEST option for recovery and here at Thrive, we welcome you to ENJOY the same transformation as thousands of others who have achieved real, lasting results with us; people who were astonished to have such dramatic decreases in their pain levels, who are keeping active and living happier, healthier lives.

So, whether you’re a grandmother recovering from knee surgery or an athlete struggling with a chronic injury that is limiting your best performance, we want you to feel confident in taking the next step towards transforming your physical health and mobility. Check out some of the most inspiring stories from clients we’ve helped- people just like you, who started their journeys with us in pain and desperate for a return to “who they used to be”. Click the green button below and you’ll have instant access to hear real stories, from real clients, who started with a hope for a pain-free, more active future and who. You’ll hear some great information, like…

  • Why so many of our clients are shocked (and delighted) to get almost instant RELIEF of pain so severe or chronic that they thought they were just going to have to live with it… Because we do “hands-on” treatment like massage, stretching, and joint manipulations, which are proven to give FAST, RELIABLE results…
  • Why you don’t have to face the pain and stiffness alone, especially if the best advice you’ve had so far is to just take some painkillers and rest…
  • Who comes to Thrive, and what kind of CULTURE our therapists and staff have created, which is equally welcoming to the young and the young-at-heart, serious athletes and “weekend warriors”, new moms and new knees…
  • The “secret ingredients” that create a whole EXPERIENCE, which is unparalleled anywhere else in the Physical Therapy industry- which keeps clients coming back (and makes so many SAD TO GO)…
  • Why people are skeptical about Physical Therapy, mostly because some doctors or other healthcare providers don't know or haven't told them how Physical Therapy can help their situations- that’s why our option to TALK TO A PHYSICAL THERAPIST FIRST, has made believers out of people who would have never made it through our doors (and would still be suffering)…
  • Why no one ever leaves Thrive PT unhappy, and how that’s as much to do with what we say and how we say it, as what we do. We take to time to make sure that you feel acknowledged and understood, and likewise that you understand and are comfortable with what we are doing, and why…

Also, because we really want you to make the BEST decision for your health, without feeling rushed or pressured into coming for therapy with us before you’re comfortable, we’d like to offer you a complimentary SPECIAL REPORT.

We wrote it specifically for our future clients (like yourself) and it was several years in the making. What we did was compile a list of all the questions we’ve been asked about our practice and about physical therapy in general, questions from previous clients who were once in your same shoes… struggling to keep up their health and mobility and seriously considering starting physical therapy, but who maybe just wanted to know a little bit more or who had some specific questions before coming.

We’ve heard that it has really helped people, and can help YOU make the BEST decision about physical therapy and a physical therapy clinic that is “just right for you.” Maybe that’s the kind of information you came to our website to find out about in the first place?

Meet Johnnye

It was difficult for me to walk for more than about 15 minutes. I just feel like you've helped me turn the clock back on my physical body. I needed to be able to have my hips balanced so that I could walk and sit without hurting. And that has been accomplished and so much more.

You’re Also Going to See Answers to ALL of These Important Questions, Which Will Help You Choose a Physical Therapist that is “Just Right for You”… One That Will Get You Active and Healthy Again, More Quickly than You Ever Thought Possible!

  • How long before I start to feel improvements from physical therapy? Here’s a hint: It’s likely to be much sooner than you think, and it has everything to do with what YOU do and when. (find out more details on page 4)
  • What is physical therapy anyway? What will I actually be doing? A lot of people don’t know, because they try researching online and there are so many different (sometimes conflicting) sources of information, or they talk to family/friends who’ve been, but sometimes they were never sure themselves, and this is because many Physical Therapists don’t take the time to explain. Well, we think you should have all the facts, before you even book an appointment with us.
  • Can physical therapy even help someone like ME? The truth is, you might be surprised how many conditions can benefit from physical therapy. In fact, one of the things we hear pretty often is “I had no idea PT could fix that!” (read more in-depth examples on page 4)
  • Isn’t it true that physical therapy is mostly for young people with sports injuries- like football players? Definitely not “mostly”. Just “partly”. Especially here at Thrive. We treat a wide-range of ages and fitness levels- it’s not just sports injuries…(find out more about who we do see, and what are the more common issues we help people with, on page 5)
  • When is the BEST (and also the SAFEST) time to exercise? It might be surprising, but there is a reason most exercise doesn't pay-off like most people hope or even expect (revealed on page 6). Here’s a tip: it has everything to do with when you do it, not so much with what you’re doing.

Who We Are

Thrive Physical Therapy is SWLA’s best choice for people looking to improve their health and quality of life. We know that this can mean different things to different people; whether it’s lifting a grand-baby or running a 10k, and we offer the expertise, advanced techniques, and compassionate care that will help anyone reach their health and fitness goals.

Our clinic was founded in 2012 by two young Physical Therapists with a shared passion for growth and learning and a sincere desire to help people in our community move more and live better. Building upon their backgrounds in a variety of specialities (including orthopedics, sports rehab, and women's health- just to name a few), Katherine and Ashley have grown our clinic, one patient at a time, to the flourishing practice that it is today. We are blessed to have just welcomed our fourth Physical Therapist, and along with our Physical Therapy Assistant, Massage Therapist, and skilled Exercise Specialists, we look forward to meeting the growing interest and appointment requests from new clients and familiar faces alike.

Who We Help (and What We Do)

We help the people of Southwest Louisiana and Southeast Texas regain their physical health and mobility, no matter what their age or fitness level, if it’s an injury or just a little “wear-and-tear”, if they exercise everyday or haven’t broken a sweat in 20 years. We work together as a team, in a positive, upbeat environment (we’ve had countless clients tell us that coming to therapy with us is the best part of their day) make sure that all of our clients feel comfortable and cared for. And we make it fun!

We also think it’s pretty telling that so many of our new clients make it in because of good, old-fashioned word-of-mouth. They have friends or family members who’ve come to therapy with us, and excited and encouraged by the positive changes they’ve seen, are eager to let us help them too.

So, here’s an ideal of some of the people who come for therapy with us… (and don’t be surprised to find yourself saying, “That’s me!”)

  • Health and Fitness conscious ladies and moms who want to LOOK and FEEL better- healthier, more vibrant, and able to run around with the kids all day and/or keep up at the gym or yoga, and who understand that defeating pain or stiffness is the first, and MOST IMPORTANT step they can take…
  • Active gentlemen and dads who want to keep up their active lifestyles and continue the work (and play!) that they enjoy- and who realize that just “sucking it up” and dealing with the pain isn’t something that they HAVE to live with to do so…
  • Smart customers who realize that the painkillers advertised (and sometimes pushed by their own healthcare providers) aren’t necessarily the best options and who also question some of the other solutions they’ve been offered (like injections, exercise handouts, or even surgery) and who know that there must be a BETTER, MORE NATURAL solution…
  • Active grandparents and the young-at-heart who are aiming to keep up with the grandkids and enjoy their retirement, who have learned the hard way that less pain and more mobility are the magic keys to making babysitting or a golf-game more enjoyable and sometimes, even possible…
  • Weekend Warriors” who work at a desk or sit in their car commuting all day, 5 days a week, but when the weekend comes, they want to be fit and ready to take it all on- kitchen renovations, a charity run, stomping the marshes and/or hosting Sunday Brunch…
  • Serious Athletes suffering from acute injuries or chronic pain, who want to get back to their sports-love-of-choice as quickly (and as safely) as possible…

And Here’s 5 More Important Questions You’ll Have the Answers to In the Next Few Minutes, When You Open Up Your New, Special Report on Choosing the Right Physical Therapist…

  • How long should I WAIT… before calling to find out more info or to book an appointment? (There is actually an OPTIMAL time-frame in which you should do it, and an NOT SO OPTIMAL time frame in which it could be less beneficial (and more costly)
  • I want to know the most important and the best reasons that other people like me have said that they went for PT at Thrive (and surprise! It doesn’t have as much to do so much with “being in pain” as you would think!)…
  • What’s the difference between a good Physical Therapist and a bad one (there are actually only three differences, and they’re likely not at all what you might expect)…
  • Is Physical Therapy really all that expensive? Well… it depends on your perspective, your goals, and your situation (as in, it’s really not) especially when compared with other options like multiple injections or surgery or missed hours at work. And it’s an investment in your future health and happiness, which really has no price tag…
  • How often will I need to come in? And after my initial consultation, what kind of time-frame and commitment should I expect? Well, the short answer is that you and your therapist will work together to determine your specific situation and goals, so it’s all very personalized to what you need. But you will find out in our report (on page 11) what the biggest factor is in determining how many sessions you’ll need. And you may be surprised to learn that it has everything to do with what you do and when!

So, Why Is It So Important for You to Read These 7 Client Stories (and Get Our Report with 51 Questions of Physical Therapy Answered)?

We’ve put all of this together for you, so that you can make the BEST, most WELL INFORMED decision about your future health and mobility. We know that there’s a lot of information out there, and some of it can be contradictory, so we put our heads together, thought about our years of experience treating clients just like yourself, who were maybe skeptical at first (or just wanting to know more), and this is what we came up with…

Also, we think there’s no better way to HELP you make the best decision than hearing real stories, from real clients, and seeing the most common questions (and honest, straightforward answers) people have asked before deciding to come and see us. We want you to feel totally confident about deciding on Physical Therapy, feeling informed and engaged, and choosing the path that is just right for you.

And that sounds like the best way to get started, right?

We also wanted to mention that we sometimes hear people say they’ve never really gotten a good explanation about what Physical Therapy actually is (or what we PTs do), sometimes not even from the Doctors who are sending them. So, with these stories and our complimentary report, we want to change the experience for you, so that you can come in and get started with us with a very good understanding of what Physical Therapy is, what it feels like, what Thrive Physical Therapy is like, and how you’re going to be so much HAPPIER and HEALTHIER (which is honestly the most important factor and what everyone is really looking for).

Physical Therapy here at Thrive isn’t just about doing exercises. It isn’t just about learning proper form or having massages or dry-needling or really anything that we say or do in your sessions. It’s about you reclaiming your body from pain and limitation and living the healthy, active life you want to live. That’s why so many of our clients are ready to share their stories! They were once in your shoes- thinking that the pain or restricted movement or weakness (and everything those things prevented in their lives) was just a part of their lives, how things were going to be, and that they were helpless to stop it.

Just knowing there was another way, and a place that could help them along it, was life changing for many of them. That’s what they’ve told us, and that’s what they want to tell you. And they truly believe that no one should miss out the benefits of Physical Therapy at Thrive, no one should miss such a QUICK and EFFECTIVE way to add VALUE, QUALITY, and ENJOYMENT to his or her life.

You are going to LOVE what we can do for you at Thrive Physical Therapy… And there’s no time like the present! Start by checking out the stories of people we’ve helped, people who were just like you, who took that same first step towards better health and haven't looked back since!
