Tulane Health System is collaborating with PT Solutions to operate a stand-alone physical therapy clinic in Chalmette. The clinic, previously operated as Bridges Physical Therapy, is located at 801 W. Judge Perez Dr. and will become Tulane PT Solutions Physical Therapy later this year.

“We are thrilled to be serving the residents of St. Bernard Parish,” 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 traditional therapy to spine rehabilitation, and even 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.

“In addition to the physical therapy clinic, our Tulane Institute of Sports Medicine has added an athletic trainer at Chalmette High School to provide medical coverage for student athletes,” said Dr. William Lunn, president and CEO of Tulane Health System. “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.”

Tulane PT Solutions Physical Therapy – Chalmette is Tulane’s fourth physical therapy clinic, and there are plans to add additional free-standing locations in the future. Patients can call (504) 278-7567 to make an appointment at the Chalmette location.
