Trina Coleman, PT Tech

Hi everyone, my name is Trina Coleman, a physical therapy technician here at OBTS. I am 21 years old now and just had a birthday in August. I was born and raised here in Valparaiso, Indiana and have been living here ever since. I used to live in a subdivision, but when I was 3 we moved out in Morgan Township with a lot more land. I went to Morgan Township from K-12th grade, which is where I graduated. All throughout school I played sports. All together I have played basketball, volleyball, soccer, softball, gymnastics, and track & field. The sport that I had a high school career in were basketball, volleyball, and track & field, with basketball being my favorite. I grew up as a little kid playing basketball with my older brother Jaron, who is going to be 24 in November. I decided I wanted to make a career out of physical therapy because I knew I wanted to work in the health field and wanted to be able to relate sports in some way. So at first, I thought I wanted to do athletic training, but never realized I truly wanted to do physical therapy until I got injured. During my junior year playing basketball, I dislocated my shoulder and ended up having to get surgery after the season ended. It wasn’t until after going through therapy myself when I realized I loved it. I also understand there is a love/hate relationship when going through therapy, so believe my when I say, I know what you all are going through!! But then again, if it wasn’t for physical therapy I would not be where I am today, and I am forever grateful for it! Funny how things work out, huh? After high school, I started taking classes at Ivy Tech Community College as a part of working towards getting into the Physical Therapist Assistant Program there. I took two years of pre-requisites, and got accepted into the program this past spring. Now, with the fall semester starting about a month ago, I am currently in my first semester of the PTA Program, and should graduate in two years! Physical therapy is something that will forever be needed, so I am extremely excited to be in a career that involves helping people! It is my passion and I am ecstatic to continue this journeyJ.

Everyone that worked with me was helpful. I enjoyed watching the staff interact as they worked as they laughed and smiled making me feel that it was fun to exercise. My knee pain is less and I look forward to having the same results with my back.

I have read lots of reviews that say "the entire staff of ..." is great, and you know that it is BS.. .. Butt at OBTS that statement is true. The person answering the phone, appointment setting they work around my schedule. It is truly a team concept. Everyone that has work with/on me keeps me focus on getting healthy to play golf.... Even those employees that haven't work with/on me are upbeat, positive and encouraging both their patients and me..... follow up phone calls, positive, hand written notes of encouragement, reminding me to do my homework so I can play golf this year. Great Employees, Great Business!.

My wife and I have been coming here for a year. They have wonderful customer service and the treatments were great. I could say that since coming here for treatments, I am now able to walk properly and sleep well at nights. They help you in the best way possible. The people here are great and we definitely recommend it to everyone!

My first experience with OBTS was very positive. During the course of my 13 therapy sessions I worked with many different therapists and all of them were professional and competent. They were able to help me effectively control my pain without medication using their therapy program. Unfortunately, they could not get my physical condition back to the same ability as before. However, this is due to the fact that it was later determined by my doctors that I required surgery. I plan on returning to OBTS for my post-op physical therapy and have already scheduled my evaluation appointment. Scheduling seems to be a challenge sometimes but that's probably an indication of their patient's satisfaction and good reviews. Thank you OBTS!

I’ve had an incredible experience here at OBTS. In just two and half weeks I’ve seen and felt remarkable results. My hip mobility has improved by 30%. I credit the excellent physical therapists and the deep tissue laser therapy for my gains. I’ve gone from walking with a limp and pain everyday to walking normally and know that I’ll be back to running in the future. Every single person is warm and friendly here. Great place!
