Jena and Marc Bratton, Physical Therapists

Bratton Physical Therapy of Slidell, Louisiana, is co-owned and operated by the husband and wife team of physical therapists, Jena and Marc Bratton. Together they have a combined experience of 32 years practicing in outpatient orthopaedics as physical therapists.

They specialize in orthopedics with a focus on diagnosing, managing and treating disorders and injuries of the musculoskeletal system in an outpatient private practice setting.

Both are proud to work in an environment that places a high priority on patient and staff comfort and excellent teamwork. They combine their science with the creation of a healing environment. They are dedicated to providing excellent one-on-one care (what they call “face time”) in their clinic. Clients get a great deal of personal attention from the physical therapist and support staff.

Jena and Marc are experienced in the treatment of sports injuries, pre and post-surgical rehabilitation for shoulder, elbow, wrist/hand, neck, back, hip, knee and ankle/foot, rehabilitation after motor vehicle accidents, shoulder, elbow, wrist/hand, neck, back, hip, knee, ankle/foot injuries, arthritis and degenerative conditions, repetitive strain, ligament injuries and sprains, muscle/tendon injuries, work related injuries, pre-work screens, functional capacity evaluations, and work conditioning.

The Brattons have been in private practice since 2004. In their 16 years of practice as physical therapists, they have handled a wide range of conditions with patients of all age ranges, from school age children with orthopaedic problems and injuries to seniors.
