Euro-Team Physical Therapy Clinic is moving to downtown Decorah.
Business owner and physical therapist Lisa Krieg said she is purchasing the former Twice as Nice building, 110 Washington St., from Duane Bruening of Decorah.
The clinic could be open in its new location by the beginning of June; it’s currently located at 2345 172nd St., off Highway 9, east of Decorah.
“I’m excited to increase space we have for our patients. We need an open space where they can walk around with walkers or crutches and more room for physical therapists to work with them,” Krieg said.
Euro-Team specializes in intensive suit therapy as well as traditional physical therapy services. The TheraSuit Method® was created by Izabella and Richard Koscielny (physical therapists and parents of a daughter with Cerebral Palsy). It is a holistic approach to treatment for those afflicted with neurological disorders like Cerebral Palsy, developmental delays and traumatic brain injuries. According to the Euro-Team website, it combines the best elements of various techniques and methods and has a sound rationale based on physiology of exercises.
Krieg said when the clinic is working with children or adults with neurological issues, sessions last two or three hours. By moving to the downtown area, parents or caregivers will be able to walk to shops or dine during that time.
“It’s a big answer to my prayers … I’ve been grateful for the space I have, but I’ve been looking around for more. It’s going to be really nice, doubling in size,” she said.
The clinic won’t occupy the entire building, and two rental spaces will be available for retail businesses, Krieg said. Anyone interested in renting the space should contact Krieg at her clinic, 563-277-1059.
In addition to Krieg, the staff at Euro-Team includes an office manager, another physical therapist and a licensed massage therapist who works on a contract basis.
Krieg said Bruening has been “wonderful” to work with.
“He was very gracious in our meetings and in his willingness to work with me on this project,” Krieg said.
