Poplar Bluff Rehabilitation

Thursday, May 24, 2012

Poplar Bluff Rehabilitation (PB Rehab) is located at 2981 Kanell Blvd., (PP Highway), in Cripple Creek Plaza. PB Rehab is a family-owned and operated physical therapy establishment whose owners and staff are motivated by patients' satisfaction and results.

Owner is Ryan Pretz, Doctor of Physical Therapy, DPT, CMPT. His wife, Whitney, is the marketing manager. His sister, Kylee Ellsworth, LMT, is the front office manager and massage therapist.

Additional professional staff members are Grant Collins, DPT, Stacy Campbell, PTA, LMT, Alicia Fowler, PTA and Kathleen Day, PTA.

Pretz says, "Our professional staff is highly trained and we take pride in our hands-on skills. We believe physical therapy is incomplete without hands-on intervention. Our patients don't just sit in the corner and do painful non-productive exercises. We provide biomechanic-specific, hands-on physical therapy treatments."

Prior to opening his own business in June 2008, Pretz spent five years observing other clinicians, studying the human body and improving his clinical skills. He has channeled most of his energy toward mastering the hands-on approach to orthopedics, industrial rehabilitation and sports physical therapy.

Pretz states, Grant Collins and I received our training through the North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy and our professional assistants are certified in ASTYM (an advanced form of soft tissue mobilization). Our treatment style is different than the typical physical therapy being offered in this area. Our treatments are gentle, progressive and hands-on. We encourage patients to come to us and experience the difference."

PB Rehab is open from 8 a.m. - 6 p.m., Monday - Friday. For more information call 573-712-2289 or check us out on Facebook or at poplarbluffrehab.com
