Henderson finds physical therapy niche Print E-mail

Physical therapist Erin Henderson believes she has found her true niche right here in Brookings, practicing her healing arts at Southwest Physical Therapy and John Breuer Rehab.

Even in high school, Henderson was drawn toward helping and healing, teaching special needs children for two years and and shadowing a physical therapist during her sophomore year spring break.

She earned a degree in human physiology at University of Oregon, graduating with honors. She moved on to Regis University’s Doctorate of Physical Therapy in Denver, and was ready for real life healing when she graduated in 2009.

She shares her attraction to the medical field with, her husband Jay, whom she met when she was 14 years old. At that time she lived in Medford and he was from Roseburg, but they met in Mexico.

“We met in Mexico building houses,” she explained. “My group was ahead and his group was behind. At 14 we became friends and stayed friends.

“We started dating when I was a freshman in college.”

Actually, it was Jay who brought the couple, who were married in June, to Curry County.

“He graduated before I did, started looking for work and found a position with Curry County Home Health and Hospice in July.”

Erin started her physical therapy career in September, and she said she’s really happy with her new position. “It’s been a really good fit,” she said. “I like the one-on-one setting and making friends in the health care field.”

Erin said she is interested in continuing her studies to include a specialty in women’s health physical therapy, particularly with regard to pelvic floor pain and dysfunction, and pregnancy related conditions.

The Hendersons also like living on the coast. “We enjoy this community, and look forward to raising a family here in the future,” she said.

However, right now she’s enthusiastic about meeting and treating new therapy patients and making more friends in Brookings-Harbor.

Southwest Physical Therapy is located at 565 Fifth St., and the telephone number is 541-469-1062.

  • Focus turns to U.S. outlook, Russian stocks stabilise
    World shares hovered just below all-time highs on Tuesday as investors drew encouragement from a rally in Chinese markets and beaten-down Russian stocks enjoyed some relief after three days of heavy selling. Investors remained cautious, however, given geopolitical jitters and a torrent of U.S. economic news due to come this week, including a Federal Reserve meeting and GDP data on Wednesday and non-farm payrolls figures on Friday. The dollar shuffled higher on bets it will all add up to the Fed hiking U.S. interest rates for the first time since the financial crisis early next year. Russian stocks steadied too after investors dumped them in recent days in anticipation of broader economic sanctions to be imposed by the European Union on Moscow this week.
  • Deutsche Bank profit rises as investment bank focus pays off
    Deutsche Bank's plan to become "the last man standing" in investment banking in Europe is working, the bank said on Tuesday, reporting a 16 percent year-on-year increase in quarterly pretax income. Deutsche Bank faces an array of investigations that ranges from allegations of manipulating the Libor benchmark rate to unfairly favoring some investors in so-called dark pools and has already paid more than 5 billion euros over the past two years in settlements and fines. In a new development, Deutsche Bank said it had received requests for information from regulators related to high frequency trading, and that it had been named as a defendant in class action complaints alleging violations of U.S. securities laws related to high frequency trading. Deutsche Bank has come under heavy fire from U.S. authorities in recent weeks, with regulators slamming the bank for shoddy financial reporting, weak technology and inadequate auditing and oversight, which it is addressing in part by hiring 500 U.S. staff.
  • Exclusive: Goldman unit eyes foray into China amid metals financing scandal
    NEW YORK/SYDNEY/LONDON (Reuters) - Goldman Sachs Group Inc's metals warehousing unit is exploring its first foray into China, and privately held C Steinweg has expanded capacity there, sources said, as a financing scandal in a major Chinese port fuels a scramble for market share. It has intensified a battle between new entrants and entrenched rivals in the multi-billion dollar business of securely storing the world's commodities in China, the world's biggest producer and user of base metals. As Goldman ponders a possible move into China, Western warehousing companies already operating there, including Glencore Plc unit Pacorini Metals and Trafigura-owned Impala [TRAFGF.UL], are scrambling to defend their turf. Detroit-based Metro International Trade Services, a major warehousing company that Goldman bought in 2010, is looking at setting up shop in Shanghai and other bonded locations in the country, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters.
