Laurie Kessen, PTA

Laurie graduated with honors from the Physical Therapist Assistant program with an Associate degree in Science at Whatcom Community College in 2013. Her interest in physical therapy arose from an interest in human physiology and anatomy and from engaging in activities such as Pilates and long distance running. In 2016, Laurie became a certified practitioner in the Myokinesthetic System which helps to correct and balance the nervous system and eliminate or reduce pain. She has had great results in helping patients with a variety of conditions such as sciatica, frozen shoulder, and back pain. Her interests lie in treating orthopedic and post-surgical patients of all fitness levels. She focuses on manual therapy to facilitate improved movement and then develops an individualized home exercise plan which enables patients to be active participants in their rehab process.
