Physical therapy center opens in Trumann

TRUMANN, AR (KAIT) - A ribbon cutting ceremony took place in downtown Trumann on Wednesday to celebrate the official opening of the NEA Baptist Clinic Physical Therapy's newest location.

Mayor of Trumann, Sheila Walters, says there's a definite need in the area. "There is a big need here," Walters said.  "Because different surrounding areas have to come in to provide the service.  So, this is an expansion that will help our city."

Director of Physical Therapy at NEA Baptist Clinic, Jeff Ramsey, says their staff is ready to get to work.

"We've been working on this for months," Ramsey said.  "It's been a lot of strategy, a lot of planning going on, but we're finally here.  It's a big relief and we're excited and ready to go.  We are here to let this community know that we're here to support them and that we're going to take care of their physical needs."

Physical Therapists at the NEA Baptist Clinic will be working with those in need on such things as neck, back, joint or muscle pain.

They will also work with pain in the arm or leg associated with nerve entrapment.

Walters says this is going to mean a lot to the area. "I think it's wonderful to have a clinic here," Walters said.  "To have physical therapy available to the residents in our city.  I happen to be a nurse.  So, I'm a little bit familiar with physical therapy and medical equipment and the way it works and having more opportunities locally, it just makes our community feel better knowing its right here at hand."

Ramsey says they want to help the public deal with any pain or limitations they might be suffering from.

"We're going to provide you with some quality care here," Ramsey said.  "We're going to address your pain and all they symptoms that you have.  We're going to get you back to doing things the way you would like."
