Professional Care with a Personal Touch

Scot Jones

Physical Therapist
North Clinical Director

Scot Jones (PT, MPT, CSCS, Cert. DN)  
I am from Rush Springs, Oklahoma. 1200 people. No stop light.
I have been a PT since 2000 graduating from the LSU PT program.
Back injuries from water skiing while on the USL waterski team led me to Physical Therapy. I appreciated not only the relief, but the fact that I could learn how to address problems myself as I certainly wasn’t going to let a bit of pain stand in the way of doing something I loved! That continues to this day by the way. —-Being from a farming and ranching community I grew up working with my hands. I enjoy being a therapist as joint mobilizations, spinal manipulations, dry needling, etc.. allow me to be very hands on with my patients. I believe this is one of the things that APT has been known for over the years and will remain so as we move forward.
Apart from being a therapist, I am a husband and a dad. The entire family still water skis competitively to one level or another. I have also gotten into competitive practical shooting over the past few years. I believe that pushing myself physically as I get older gives me insight into the issues that my patients face as it seems I am constantly managing my own aches and pains!

Where did you go to school (undergrad and PT)?
I went to Northwestern State in Natchitoches for undergrad and finished up my PT degree at LSU Medical Center in Shreveport

I became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) in 2001 and earned my Manual Therapy Certification form the University of St. Augustine in 2006.

My treatment philosophy is based on a combination of my backgrounds in movement and exercise prescription and manual, hands on techniques which I feel gives a well rounded approach to recovery.

How long have you been a physical therapist?

What made you want to become a Physical Therapist?
I started out being fascinated watching PTs working with kids using adapted toys at the Shriners hospital where my Mom worked. I later became interested in biomechanics analysis and also had a passion for working closely with people. I think physical therapy ended up being a really good natural fit for me.

I grew up playing tennis and softball through high school and was on the rowing team in college. I still enjoy playing tennis as well as running, hiking and snowboarding. I also love traveling with my husband Thomas and our twins, Luke and Addie.

Why do you love being a PT?
I love being part of people’s journey back to doing the things that they love, whether it’s getting back to competing in high level sports or going for a walk with their grandkids. It is very rewarding for me to be able to use my skill set and to create a positive environment to help people are recovering to thrive and achieve their best.

Cobey West

Physical Therapist

Where are you from?
Ville Platte, LA

Where did you graduate?
Undergrad – UL Lafayette
PT school – LSUHSC Shreveport

What are your qualifications / certifications?
Clinical doctorate in PT

How long have you been a Physical Therapist?
Since June 2019

What made you want to become a Physical Therapist?
Three of our guys were injured by an IED in Iraq in 2005 and were flown to a hospital in Baghdad. We were able to go visit them there and the place was filled with injured soldiers lined up along the walls of a long room. There were no families at the bedsides, there’s was an obvious shortage of medical personnel, and all the injured seemed helpless. The whole time I was there I kept thinking “Man, I wish there was something I could do to help these guys”. Inspired by that moment and my passion for exercise and fitness, I decided to enroll at UL to become a PT. I had never known a PT, received PT treatment, or even been in a PT clinic before, but I knew it was the profession for me.

What do you do (hobbies) outside of work?
Camping, hunting and fishing with my son, wood work, exercising, and anything outdoors.

Why do you love being a Physical Therapist?
Being a part of someone’s recovery is very rewarding. It’s not just treating a patient, it’s getting to know that person and building a relationship with them. You’re able to witness the person progress from being unable to perform daily activities to becoming stronger and more able than before.

What made you want to become a Physical Therapy Assistant?
Since a young age I’ve always had a strong since of urgency to help others and give back to my community. Growing up an athlete and sustaining multiple injuries, some requiring surgery, and attending physical therapy myself I knew that this was a way I could help others and give back. The gratitude and appreciate I felt for the team of professionals that got me back on the field, playing a sport I loved, was one of the best feelings and I knew I wanted to do the same for others. I wanted to help the people of our community get back to what they love to do whether it be recovering from surgery, getting back to sports, gardening or walking, whatever it may be, I wanted to give out a help hand.

I love to be outdoors, whether it be a pick up game of softball, hunting or fishing. I also enjoy spending quality time with family and friends who have all played such a big role in my journey to becoming a Physical Therapist Assistant.

Why do you love being a Physical Therapy Assistant?
I love being a Physical Therapist Assistant because there is no greater joy nor feeling than helping others and to be able to say I have this opportunity in which I can do so each day I walk through the door is truly a blessing and humbling feeling. I have always been told, “Find something you love to do and you will never work a day in your life” and I have found my joy in being a Physical Therapist Assistant.
