Tulane Health System is collaborating with PTSolutions to operate a stand-alone physical therapy clinic in River Ridge. The clinic, previously operated as A&K Physical Therapy, is located at 10017 Jefferson Hwy. and will become Tulane PT Solutions Physical Therapy – River Ridge early this fall.

“We are thrilled to be serving the residents of this community,” said Kevin Duffy, director of physical therapy at PT Solutions. “Our goal is to provide our patients world-class physical therapy right in their own neighborhood. We offer everything –from spine rehabilitation to concussion care.

The clinic’s expert physical therapists treat adults and children suffering pain or dysfunction from injury, stress, bad posture or recent surgery. The clinic is outfitted with the latest treatment options, including exercise machines, dry needling and more, to help patients meet and exceed their therapy milestones. The therapists create individualized treatments and programs for each patient based on the most recent and proven scientific literature, Duffy said.

“Tulane Health System strives to set the standard for healthcare in our community, and that includes offering services at locations that keep patients close to home,”said Sean Flinn, Tulane Health System’s associate chief operating officer. “For physical therapy patients especially, who may have mobility issues, we want to make access to our services as easy and convenient as possible.”

Tulane PT Solutions Physical Therapy – River Ridge is Tulane’s fifth physical therapy clinic, and there are plans to add additional free-standing locations in the future.
