Here is what Nicole Poulton, PT, DPT, PMA-CPT and Kate Watkins Judd, PT, DPT, ATC/L, CPI have to say about working here at Balanced PT:

"While doing internships in PT school, I was able to see different types of clinics. I realized that I had a hard time being in a clinic where I had to see three to four patients an hour. I didn't feel like I was able to spend enough time with my patients in order to really use my skills to help them get better. I felt fortunate when I met Heather at Balanced Physical Therapy because she believed in giving each patient a full hour of one-on-one care with a physical therapist. I knew that it was important to practice at a clinic where I could give the patient the care they deserved. I knew they would receive the knowledge and the therapy they needed to influence them for the rest of their lives. During my last year of PT school I took the Polestar Pilates Rehab course. I saw the great benefits of Pilates in assisting patients with body awareness and increasing their strength, especially with the stabilizing muscles. Working with Balanced Physical Therapy has definitely been a blessing in my life. I have been able to work in a family-like atmosphere where staff members and patients sincerely care about each other."
-Nicole Downs Poulton




My first year out of school, I followed in the steps of a typical new grad. I accepted a position in a general outpatient orthopedic where I gained invaluable exposure to transition myself from being a proverbial "student with a license" into an independent professional with real world experience.  I also gained the healthy perspective that every person I treated didn't necessarily heal in "textbook" fashion - that we are more like a jumble of probabilities than hard-and-fast equations.  Over the course of my first year as a practicing Physical Therapist, I was blessed to gain many mentors who showed me that there is more than one way to treat a mechanical issue and that when a patient's body doesn't respond to one treatment method, it can be appropriate, useful, and necessary to use a different method.   I found myself combining facets from all of the treatment methods I had learned thus far at different phases of healing when it was clinically deemed appropriate. 

As I evolved as a clinician, I realized I needed to transition a clinic where I could practice in a way that would allow me to be in full control of my part of a patient's care.  At Balanced Physical Therapy, the private practice atmosphere is singular comparative to other national/corporate physical therapy clinic chains.  I see each of my patients one-on-one for an hour, where I am able to naturally combine my orthopedic and manual therapy training with the rehabilitative concepts of Pilates to provide the most quality care to patients.  You will not find these opportunities in "traditional" orthopedics.
