Here's What Other Women Have Said About the Specialist Care They Have Received from the Experts at Thrive Physical Therapy...

“During the end of the 2nd trimester, when my back and hip pain really started bothering me, I believed it was just something I had to endure until the end. When my OGGYN referred me to Thrive for Physical Therapy I was skeptical, but hopeful, and now I’m THANKFUL! I’m 3 weeks away from delivery and am so grateful to see such a significant reduction in my pain. I am so thankful for the staff at Thrive and the gift they have given me to enjoy my last few weeks of pregnancy rather than struggling through it.”

T. Scarborough

"Being a school teacher, I was unaware of how I placed restrictions upon myself in making time for restroom breaks. With Katherine's expertise in this area, I became aware of the unhealthy patterns I had become accustomed to. After a month of retraining my bladder it was able to functioning with a new "normalcy", which helped resolve my issue. I am so thankful I received help with this problem before having to resort to medication or surgery!"

S. Landry

“I have been provided with the tools to keep myself healthy and strong. I feel so comfortable asking questions. We had to do some invasive treatments for my endometriosis and Katherine was always so kind and talked me through everything. She also took the time to explain everything thoroughly. I tell all my friends about Thrive, especially those with female issues. This was by far the best experience I have ever had at physical therapy.“

Katherine’s Story:

Katherine began her interest in Women’s Health PT before even starting PT school. After completing PT school, she began her journey to learn everything she could about this subspeciality in physical therapy. In 2012, she co-founded Thrive Physical Therapy with Ashley because they felt that there was a need for a clinic in the Lake Charles area that offered more than what the others were offering.

Katherine has always had a passion for treating women who suffer with pelvic floor dysfunction because she believes that many of these women believe that their symptoms are normal and that there is nothing that can be done to help them. It is her mission to educate as many women as possible that there is help to their problem as well as to help them make the best decision about their health as possible.
