Marcy Linxwiler, DPT

Owner and Senior Physical Therapist

“Even before I started college, I worked in the physical therapy field and dreamed of one day opening an outpatient physical therapy clinic. Now I have been in business for more than 10 years and I enjoy improving all of patients lives so that they can return to what makes them happy!  Today I get to treat and help so many people with orthopedic conditions, sports- and work-related injuries, pain and lost function. Teaching with Kinetacore has also given me a new insight into new techniques across the country and Canada that I have brought back to Louisiana. 

Whether I am treating an athlete with a knee or shoulder injury or a pregnant mom-to-be with low back pain, I believe in delivering evidence-based treatment and hands-on manual therapy. I believe in educating patients about their conditions and therapy options and providing customized home exercise programs to speed their recovery.

Most importantly, I believe in listening to patients and devoting as much one-to-one time as they need to achieve the best results. With my cutting-edge certification in dry needling, I am able to improve patients’ lives faster and more effective than ever.”
