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.
