About Us -“Where It All Began

 Hi everyone,

My name is Jessica Jimenez and I am the owner of Parish Physical Therapy located in Scott, LA.

The dream of opening my very own outpatient physical therapy clinic began early one Sunday morning in March of 2020 following 8 am mass at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Scott, LA.  While driving home, I noticed a bright purple building on Cameron Street that immediately caught my attention!

The building was an older pediatric doctor’s office that had seen better days.  Walking around the outside of the building, I could tell all of the potential this building had in store!  A wheelchair ramp to be accessible to ALL patients, check!  A nice sized parking lot, a brick exterior, check! My mind was racing with ideas, I scheduled a showing to the view the inside of the building.

Upon entering the building for the first time, the first thing I noticed was that this building had not had a facelift in a long time.  Linoleum square tiles covered the floors, purple trim surrounded doorways, paintings of clowns and the alphabet littered the walls, and wood paneling was dispersed along the interior walls of the building.  Old papers and medical supplies had been discarded by the previous tenants and strewn along the receptionist’s desk.  Despite the dated look of the building, I could envision the limitless potential this building possessed.

After completing the first walk through, I sat down with my husband to discuss my vision for the future of this clinic.  What kind of renovations would I need to make this clinic patient ready?  What paint colors would I choose?  What type of flooring?  What kind of therapy equipment would I be purchasing?  The excitement was practically beaming from me.  I knew I saw the endless potential and character of this building, and was ready to act on my vision.  I was ready to make the jump!

After consulting with two of my best friends, who flip houses for a living, I was referred to a potential contractor to help bring my vision to life.  Speaking with the contractors, there were 3 main criteria for the renovation process.

1.  Moving all treatment rooms to the outer walls of the building

2.  Relocating two bathrooms to be handicap accessible

3.  Opening up a large centralized location to have a treatment and wellness exercise area

The contractors assured me that they could help make my dream a reality in three months’ time.  And that is when the renovation/face lift began!  Knocking down walls, moving drain lines, re-framing doorways to be handicap accessible, building a brand-new lobby, hanging new drywall, laying down new flooring, fresh paint inside and out, and plans for new landscaping have helped to give Parish Physical Therapy new life!

I can’t help but be reminded of the process that helped me get to where I am today.  I have poured countless hours of prayers, blood, sweat, and tears into opening Parish Physical Therapy to be of service to you!  The opening of Parish Physical Therapy is a culmination of my life’s work and vision to help shape the future of health and wellness in and around Scott, LA.

My husband and I have lived in Scott, LA since 2011, and we love raising our 3 kids here!  We are parishioners of Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church, and our kids attend Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic School.  We love the tight knit community that Scott, LA is known for.  Sitting down to eat at Coffee Depot or Uncle T’s restaurant, you are sure to see a familiar face and be greeted with a warm welcome.  I hope the clinic will give you that same sense of welcome. I am so excited to be able to give back to the community, and eagerly await hearing from all of you!  I could not be more excited to be able to see all of you soon and help you achieve your health and wellness goals!

Services We Offer

Dry Needling

Dry needling is a skilled intervention that uses a thin filament needle to penetrate the skin and stimulate underlying myofascial trigger points, muscular, and connective tissues for the management of neuromusculoskeletal pain and movement impairments.  

Z

Functional Capacity Evaluations

A functional capacity evaluation (FCE) evaluates an individual’s capacity to perform work activities related to his or her participation in employment (Soer et al., 2008). The FCE process compares the individual’s health status, and body functions and structures to the demands of the job and the work environment.

LSVT Big for Parkinson's Disease

LSVT BIG trains people with Parkinson disease (PD) to use their body more normally.  LSVT BIG effectively trains improved movements for any activity, whether “small motor” tasks like buttoning a shirt or “large motor” tasks like getting up from sofa or chair or maintaining balance while walking. The treatment improves walking, self-care, and other tasks by helping people “recalibrate” how they perceive their movements with what others actually see.

Z

IASTM

Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) is a popular treatment for myofascial restriction. IASTM uses specially designed instruments to provide a mobilizing effect to scar tissue and myofascial adhesions.

Z

Joint Mobilizations

Skilled passive movement of the articular surfaces of a joint performed by a physical therapist to decrease pain, improve joint mobility, and restore function.

Z

Pre & Post Surgical Rehabilitation

“Pre-hab” to strengthen musculature prior to surgery to allow for better surgical outcomes.  Post surgical rehabilitation aids in recovery from a variety of surgical interventions: total knee replacement, total hip replacement, back surgery, neck surgery, rotator cuff repair.

Z

Core Stabilization

The core is a group of muscles that stabilizes and controls the pelvis and spine. Core strength is less about power and more about the subtleties of being able to maintain the body in ideal postures — to unload the joints and promote ease of movement. Having a strong and stable core can often prevent overuse injuries, and can help boost resiliency and ease of rehab from acute injury.

Z

Vestibular Rehabilitation

Vestibular rehabilitation is an exercise-based program, designed by a specialty-trained vestibular physical therapist, to improve balance and reduce problems related to dizziness.  Including, but not limited to, the treatment of vertigo.

Z

Cupping

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People are treated with cupping for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

Z

Pain Management

Therapy to reduce or relieve pain symptoms to allow for a improved function and an improved quality of life.

Z

Gait Training/Analysis

A thorough analysis of your walking or running pattern.  It helps to determine inefficiencies in movement and potential causes of foot, ankle, knee, hip, or back pain. 

Z

Headache Relief

Treatment to relieve headaches and migraines that are musculoskeletal in nature.  Utilizing techniques such as, Dry Needling, Manual Therapy, & Stretching Techniques, we can help to reduce or relieve headache symptoms.

Z

Sports Injury Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation focused on highly skilled and coordinated movement to return to athletic competition.  Returning to sports and competing at a high level requires highly specific movements, joint stabilization, core stabilization to prevent re-injury.

Z

Concussion Rehabilitation

Treatment for recovery from a concussion.  Multi-faceted addressing visual, balance, vestibular deficits.  May involve progressive exercise focusing on returning to pre-concussion level of function.

Z

Kinesiotaping

Kinesiotaping is a highly effective rehabilitative technique that is designed to support the body’s natural healing process. It involves application of breathable and flexible adhesive tape that serves a dual purpose of either facilitating or inhibiting muscle movement depending on the direction in which it is applied.

Z

Balance Training

 Assessment and treatment of the 3 systems (visual, somatosensory, vestibular) that help to regulate balance.  When any of these systems are affected, you can experience “room spinning” dizziness, feelings of unsteadiness, or “off balance” 

Blood Flow Restriction

Blood-flow restriction training help patients make greater strength training gains while lifting lighter loads, thereby reducing the overall stress placed on the limb.

Z

Movement Analysis

Analysis of movement patterns to determine inefficiencies, limitations, and potential movement patterns that can cause pain and/or injury.

Women's Health

Addresses spinal and pelvic joint dysfunction, instructs in exercises to address muscle weakness and imbalance, as well as provides guidance and instruction related to modification of ADLs that may be difficult during these phases of life.

Z

Temporomandibular Joint Rehabilitation (TMJ)

The focus of physical therapy for TMJ dysfunction is relaxation, stretching, and releasing tight muscles and scar tissue. Physical therapy is an especially important part of recovery from TM joint surgery, as it helps minimize scar tissue formation and muscle tightness.

Z

Postural Analysis

Analysis to determine proper anatomical alignment or posture to identify abnormalities in body structure. Normal posture ensures an even balance of the body and prevents a specific set of core muscles from getting overworked.  Poor posture can lead to headaches, neck pain, back pain.
