Baudry Therapy Center | BRIO To Celebrate National Physical Therapy Month’s Global Day Of Service At Louisiana Parkinson’s Walk

METAIRIE, LA – October is National Physical Therapy Month and Baudry Therapy Center | BRIO is joining members of the physical therapy profession for a worldwide effort to give back to the community on Saturday, Oct. 14.

         Designated as PT Day of Service (PTDOS), this one-day event celebrates physical therapists’ dedication to bettering our communities and impacting change.

         Baudry Therapy Center | BRIO, 2620 Metairie Lawn Dr., has chosen to support and serve the Louisiana Walks for Parkinson’s organization for PTDOS, and on Saturday the Baudry team will participate in the two-mile walk at Lafreniere Park and will be on-hand to assist with any physical therapy needs for Parkinson patients and/ or race participants. In addition, they will help cook and serve jambalaya after the race.

         “We see firsthand how beneficial physical therapy can be to Parkinson’s patients,” said Richard Baudry, owner, Baudry Therapy Center | BRIO. “Being able to restore our patients’ movement and function so that they can live a fuller life truly brings joy to our lives. The Louisiana Parkinson’s Walk is the perfect way to show appreciation for our patients and gratitude to their families who are their biggest support system.”

         Celebrating its third year, PTDOS is a chance to show the world how PTs can come together in one collaborative effort and ignite change. Each act individually may seem small, but collectively, the profession can set in a motion a mindset of helping each other thrive in the best environment possible.

         Physical therapists in more than 38 countries have pledged to participate in PT Day of Service and thereby promote servant leadership across the globe.
