Jul 19, 2012

Jonesboro, Ark., July 19, 2012 –– NEA Baptist Clinic continues to strengthen their commitment to the health care needs in Northeast Arkansas by opening two new satellite locations for Physical Therapy. In an endeavor led by Jeff Ramsey, Physical Therapist at NEA Baptist Clinic Physical Therapy in Jonesboro, new physical therapy locations have opened in Trumann and Paragould. Chris Enger, physical therapist in Paragould, and Wayne Traylor, physical therapist in Trumann, began seeing patients Monday, July 16 2012 in their respective locations. The Jonesboro location has also added Leif Lovins, physical therapist.


“We have identified a need in both Trumann and Paragould for quality physical therapy care. The decision to expand our Jonesboro location will accommodate those needs and allow patients to receive the best care possible without going far from home,” says Darrell King, CEO of NEA Baptist Clinic.


Physical Therapists at NEA Baptist Clinic evaluate and treat limitations and/or disabilities consisting of: neck pain, back pain, joint pain (shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, ankles and feet), balance disorders, muscle pain, and pain in the arm or leg associated with nerve entrapment. Rehabilitation strategies often involve specific exercises to stretch and strengthen muscles as well as to improve posture, balance and endurance. Physical modalities including heat, cold, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation are also incorporated into treatment sessions. Use of traction machines / spinal decompression and massage are two other valuable techniques used for functional improvement and pain reduction.


The Paragould location is located at 4700 West Kingshighway inside the NEA Baptist Clinic building in Paragould, AR. Appointments can be made by calling 870-240-8402.
