Physical Therapists

Craig Goodwin, President & Physical Therapist at Orthopedic & Sports Therapy

Craig Goodwin, PT, President, All Locations

I’ve devoted a good part of my career to working behind the scenes to improve physical therapy care, support legislative change, and support the outstanding work of referring physicians. There’s so much about physical therapy that I enjoy, particularly being able to get patients back to their favorite activities. I also enjoy working with patients, coaches, and faculty at area schools on injury prevention and advanced training techniques for various sports. Everything we do, in fact, is aimed at providing the highest level of patient care.

David Ware, Physical Therapist & Director of Orthopedic & Sports Therapy in Metairie, LA

David Ware, PT, Director, Metairie Location

I am proud of the fact that we can ensure that all patients receive consistency of care by seeing the same physical therapist every visit. This is important to the patient and allows us to make good decisions at each visit. We treat everyone, from the pediatric to the geriatric patient, with compassion, dignity, respect, and positive motivation. I love working with people who are in acute pain from an extremity or spinal problem. It’s great to see them leave feeling and functioning better.

Though I work with patients of all ages, I really enjoy working with people who have been injured at work. My extra training and experience in industrial physical therapy and my interest in helping people regain their livelihoods is a great benefit to my patients. I enjoy working with shoulder, knee, and spinal patients. I always treat my patients as if they were my friends, and they always feel the difference.

I take great satisfaction is assisting our physicians with the care of their patients. As our clinic specialist in spinal disorders, I welcome the challenge that such diagnoses bring. Treating patients with empathy and understanding, especially in the case of chronic conditions, has made a true difference in physical therapy compliance, improvement in their conditions, and overall enjoyment of the physical therapy experience. I also enjoy being our clinic liaison with the Hispanic community. An easy, open line of communication with all of our patients is critical.

As a physical therapist, I take pride and great joy in getting our patients back to what they like to do as well as improve their overall quality of life. While it is difficult at first to see the patient the first day of treatment in pain and with other ailments, it is a great joy to see them at the end of their time with us with minimal to no pain as well as giving them back their quality of life. I also take great joy in communicating with our Hispanic community as this is a growing population in Kenner and should be served accordingly with respect and open communication.

Our Therapy Dog

You may notice a sweet, polite pup in the therapy room. She will likely be helping someone with their therapy! Specially trained in obedience and cues, Annie will either assist with physical therapy or act as a motivator.

Animal-assisted physical therapy has several benefits for your mental health. It can initiate an automatic relaxation response, promotes the release of mood-elevating hormones, decreases anxiety, provide a happy distraction, and reduce the initial resistance to therapy. For physical health, Annie can help lower your blood pressure, slow breathing in those who are anxious, release hormones that have the same effect as chocolate, diminish overall pain, promote relaxation during exercise, and increase motivation.

Our therapists are waiting to help you get back in motion without pain!
