Laurie Hutt likes to keep moving. Whether playing sports—basketball is her favorite—or being outdoors in the fresh air and bright sunshine, she’s on the go. As you would guess, she loves traveling, too! And professionally, she knows how crucial movement is to successful physical therapy. There are long term health benefits that come from incorporating movement into your everyday activities. It all adds up. Taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Walking to pick up food instead of having it delivered. Parking farther away from an entrance. Conscious living, right?
It helps to have someone to motivate you, to keep you moving and living smarter, and Laurie really enjoys encouraging people to achieve their goals. She’s focused on helping others, and truly empowers her patients, showing them a path forward during treatment—sometimes with a gentle, genial nudge. She says it best: “Sometimes people just need that little extra push and a different perspective to recognize that they can do it!”
Being active comes naturally to her! And that passion translates to her profession perfectly. She enables patients to return to an active lifestyle and have fun doing it. Her quest is to make a difference in people’s lives. As Laurie says herself, she strives to have patients “actualize their potential, while incorporating a healthier and more active mindset into everyday life.”
The payoff is watching the people she treats improve– and fully recognize that if they just keep moving they can enjoy lasting health, pain-free and doing what they love.
