"I'd like to thank Seth Kaplan and his team at BRPT Lake for the miracle they recently worked on me. I've been an active runner/triathlete for years now, but recently have been having a lot of problems with my hip flexors. Or at least that's what I thought.
I had a long training run not go so well and my hip/groin area was in a lot of pain. Knowing I had a big trail run scheduled soon I went into BRPT Lake the next day. Seth was great. He listened to my "self diagnosis", nodded in agreement and then proceeded to find the actual problem. As it turns out I didn't have a hip flexor problem at all. Seth and crew gave me some specific strength exercises to help my overall form and function and were able to apply some much needed therapy on my hip ABDUCTORS.
I now understand exactly what that pain is, how to stretch properly to avoid mid race failures and what exercises I can do to eliminate the issue all together. I just completed the Mountain Mist 50K and felt strong throughout. I was not limited at all by any injuries and certainly could not have said that had I not gone to see the team at BRPT Lake."
"It has been a year since Dr. Greg LeBlanc performed dry needling to cure (yes, I said CURE!) my plantar fasciitis. My injury occurred in July 2011, during a sprinting segment in my Bootcamp class. I have enjoyed competing in several sprint triathlons, mud runs, 5K and 10K runs, and participating in bootcamp classes for years, with no plans to "retire" any time soon. After trying many rehab treatments, including stretching, sports massage, Astym treatments, wearing a Strasbourg sock at night, not running, etc. for months, Dr. Greg convinced me that dry needling was what I needed to heal my plantar fasciitis. Honestly, in a matter of weeks after the procedure, I was a new person! I had lived for months in constant pain, and just a few short weeks after the needling treatment, the pain was GONE! Dr. Greg got me back in my game, and I have not had any PF problems since! I have participated in several 10K races and mud runs in the past year, with no pain at all. I recently turned 50, and I don't plan on slowing down any time soon! I do a lot more stretching now, and a little less sprinting, and my foot feels great! Dr. Greg truly is a miracle healer! I just wish I didn't have to drive so far for treatment! (I live in Katy, TX) Thanks for helping me continue my active lifestyle! Keep up the awesome healing work, Dr. Greg!"
"Excellent! That would be the one word to sum up the team at Baton Rouge Physical Therapy-Lake. Being a 40-something weekend warrior, I began to have some hip issues from running. With a lot of pulling, stretching and proper exercises by Seth Kaplan, he was able to keep me off the operating table and back to my regular routine."
"After training and completing two half-marathons, I injured myself. I had a pending stress fracture and posterior tibial tenosynovitis. As a runner when you are told you cannot run, it is pretty devastating. I was in a walking boot for about a week. Then I began Physical Therapy at BRPT-Lake with Seth Kaplan. Within 4 weeks, Seth had me back running! Seth is the best! The entire staff at BRPT-Lake has been wonderful. I enjoyed working with Lacie - she made the exercises go by fast. I also enjoyed talking with the other physical therapists, Greg and Tyler. Everyone is so friendly and makes PT easy to go to. So Seth worked me hard, but it has paid off. I am so grateful to Seth Kaplan and all the staff at BRPT-Lake!"
"I have just finished my third experience with Baton Rouge Physical Therapy-Lake. The previous two treatments, following a broken elbow and a badly injured leg, took place a number of years ago. I was put back in proper working order by the now almost mythic Ricky Lane.
For the third experience, I was treated for a pinched nerve by Lacie Hurdle, Brad Rose, and by the magical hands of Seth Kaplan. The professionalism was stellar, and the compassionate atmosphere encouraged the patient's best effort. I thank all of you very warmly and sincerely."

"I began to experience pain in my left shoulder that occasionally shot down into my left arm. I saw my orthopedist for this and soon received a diagnosis of cervical degenerative disc disease. I began physical therapy for this condition to try and find some relief of the pain and headaches that I was having while trying to perform my job duties and daily activities. After coming to therapy for just one visit, I decided to mention to my therapist that along with the pain on the left side of my neck, shoulder, and arm I sometimes had pain into my left chest. My therapist checked me out and felt like the discomfort that I was having was unrelated to the condition for which I was receiving therapy. She recommended that I see my primary care physician immediately. During that visit, it was discovered that I was suffering from high blood pressure and I needed to see a cardiologist. I underwent a stress test and later a procedure for placement of a stent in my heart.
My experience at BRPT-Lake essentially saved my life because I had 95-98% blockage in one of the arteries in my heart. I really enjoyed the people and my time of therapy at BRPT-Lake and would recommend them to all of my family and friends."
"This is the first time I have been to a rehab center. I did not have a lot of faith in physical therapy, but since I have come to therapy I feel 100% better. And in only 5 treatments! Everybody has been great; I highly recommend BRPT-Lake and its staff. Thanks for the great job you all have done for me."

"I recently strained the ACL in my left knee while jogging. I was referred to physical therapy and chose BRPT-Lake. The staff at the Lee Drive location was very helpful and professional. Michelle Jones was my PT. She along with the entire staff monitored my exercises and corrected the errors I made. In the two months I received treatment, I was able to run 9 miles and feel I will be able to complete my half marathon on 1/7/12. My knee feels great and they have given me exercises to continue. I would recommend the services of BRPT-Lake and would use them in the future."

"My condition has improved greatly. My treatment at your facility was accomplished with skill and friendliness. I observed that every patient received the same courteous attention from your staff. I would not hesitate to tell my family and friends how exceptional your therapy center is."
Marcus M. Hirsch
"As a competitive cyclist for over 35 years, I learned first hand that BRPT-Lake's Brittany location staff has the ability to find and treat the root cause of pain symptoms that often come from overuse and self-inflicted abuse in this sport. Everyone from the receptionist to the therapist made good use of my time, listened to me, and 'torqued' me to the point of being more flexible and pain free, not only during my rides but throughout the entire day. They are a very professional, friendly, and results-driven group."
"Wow! BRPT-Lake is your best bet for a successful injury rehab. Lance and all of his staff are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. They are true professionals when it comes to fixing an injury. Everyone knows what they are doing and the second you walk into the door your road to recovery has begun. I wouldn't change a thing about my rehab. I'm even kind of happy I got hurt in the first place because of the awesome experience I had at BRPT-Lake!"
"I have been coming to BRPT-Lake for several years. I have found them to be very gentle but to the point of getting the joints working. They are very polite and look out for your welfare. When I finished my sessions, I can assure you that the problem I had was corrected. I would recommend this company to anyone."

"BRPT-Lake is the 'GET WELL' place. They will truly try to work themselves out of a job by getting you well, always in a helpful, cheerful manner. The atmosphere makes you want to go back just to visit and have coffee!"

"Having been a full-time athlete all my life, I understand the value of exceptional therapy for physical injuries. Over the years I have received treatment from several different therapeutic centers. I have yet to find a better center than BRPT-Lake. The level of treatment exceeded my expectations on two different occasions. Once for rehabilitation from a shoulder surgery and the second for elbow tendonitis and a hip injury. As a collegiate baseball player this therapy was crucial to my success. At BRPT-Lake, the focus and dedication to my rehabilitation was unprecedented. I would highly recommend this center to anyone seeking quality recovery where failure for improvement is not an option. This aspect along with the family atmosphere makes BRPT-Lake superior to other physical therapy centers."

"As an aging athlete, I have had more than my fair share of visits to BRPT-Lake. Whether I've pulled a hamstring or developed a lumbar strain, the therapists at BRPT-Lake always respect my need for an efficient workup and therapy plan that gets me back on the soccer field as soon as possible. They carefully explain the science behind the therapy that they recommend, which helps me understand my problem better. As a physician, it helps me recommend appropriate therapy for my patients too."

"On Halloween of 2009, I had a freak injury where I tore about 30% of my quadriceps muscle in my left leg away from the patella. After seeing an orthopedic (physician), and after being on crutches for a period of time, I started my rehab at BRPT-Lake. Seth Kaplan, Tyler Lafauci, and Greg LeBlanc, all friends of mine, had the pleasure of inflicting pain upon my body, but at the same time, began my road to recovery. Because of their expertise, consistency, follow up, quality care, and professional commitment, I have regained great use of my leg with only about 70% of my quadriceps muscle. They continue to 'get on me' about doing the things that I need to do lifelong, to maintain quality use of my leg.
These guys, and the entire staff at BRPT-Lake, are true professionals. They are committed to the patient and work through the individual problems that brought the patient to them. I would recommend BRPT-Lake to anyone in need of rehab, and I would do so enthusiastically and without reservation."
"Thanks to Keith and his staff for their hard work and friendship. My knee is pain-free and flexible thanks to them. Keep up the great work and see you down the road!!"
