PHYSICAL THERAPIST COMES TO BROOKINGS

Brookings-Harbor Physical Therapy announces it is contracting the services of physical therapist Amy Keusink.

Keusink, who is known in musical circles as violinist Amy Moore, began practicing physical therapy after she received her masters degree at Duke University in her home state of North Carolina.

Prior to working on her graduate degree, she earned a bachelors degree in psychology. During her training she took a course in cardiac rehabilitation, which confirmed her interest in physical therapy.

After she received her certification, she moved to northeastern Arizona where she worked on the Navajo reservation as a school physical therapist. She stayed there for a year before making her move to Curry County in June 1997.

She found this area five years before playing violin for the Pistol River Concert Association. After her first visit, she made regular visits to the area to perform.

I got to know the people in Pistol River and in Gold Beach by playing violin at the Pistol River Friendship Hall, Keusink said.

However, she began to think about returning to the East Coast, but she met attorney Chris Keusink who changed her mind.

I almost moved back to North Carolina, but Chris swooped me off my feet, she said.

Now that she is married, she has chosen to contract her services. She also contracts with Curry County Home Health.

Among the things she enjoys about physical therapy is the one-on-one client contact, she said. Working one on one is also what she enjoys about psychology and teaching violin.

Keusink said she considers herself a jack-of-all-trades physical therapist.

Everyone has a different area of expertise, Keusink said. Clients can find the right person to work with them.

Its a big team approach here, Keusink said. Either you know it or you contact others in the clinic.

She works with pediatric, geriatric and orthopedic clients at the clinic at 614 Spruce St. at at the clients home. She said she favors home health.

I love to be able to treat people in their own environment, Keusink said. There I get to see all the factors in their daily challenge.

Brookings-Harbor Physical Therapy takes clients by physician referral and by contacting the firm. The business is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

For information, call (541) 469-1062.

  • European bonds and stocks on the defensive before tight Greek vote
    Yields on top-rated German 10-year Bunds, the benchmark for European borrowing costs, fell as some investors chose to preserve their capital in low-yielding but relatively safe assets. The moves were marginal, though, as investors did not want to position too heavily on either side. "The European market is frozen ahead of the Greek referendum," said Markus Allenspach, head fixed income research at Julius Baer.
  • Greeks deeply divided heading into crucial vote
    Tens of thousands of Greeks took to the streets on Friday in rival rallies that laid bare the deep divide heading into a referendum that may decide the country?s future in Europe?s single currency. Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, elected in January on a promise to end years of austerity, urged people packing Syntagma square in central Athens to spurn the tough terms of an aid deal offered by international creditors to keep the country afloat. Tsipras says they are bluffing, fearing the fallout for Europe and the global economy.
  • Aetna to buy Humana for $37 billion in largest insurance deal
    The combination will push Aetna close to Anthem Inc's (ANTM.N) No.2 insurer spot by membership, and would nearly triple Aetna's Medicare Advantage business. The deal will face antitrust scrutiny but if it goes through it would dwarf the previous largest insurance deal announced just this week, where Swiss property and casualty giant ACE Ltd (ACE.N) announced it was buying Chubb Corp (CB.N) for $28 billion.
