Hello, my name is Myra and I am a physical therapist. I am the founder and CEO of Burkhardt Physical Therapy Center, LLC which was established in April 2001 with the help and encouragement of my husband, Randy.
I graduated in 1987 from Northwestern University Physical Therapy Program in Chicago, IL and have over 31 years of experience in manual techniques, neuromuscular re-education, exercise instruction, as well as many hours of post-graduate continued education. I am a board certified specialist in Jones Strain Counterstrain technique since 2004 and have continue to progress my skills and knowledge in this cutting edge treatment with each year.
I have taken all the current coursework for the “New” Fascial Counterstrain technique and have had the privilege to table train new students and mentor others as well. I am excited to learn new treatment strategies that help patients who do not respond to standard physical therapy protocols. I have also studied and trained with Myopain Seminars to become an expert in Trigger Point Dry Needling Technique, which is another cutting-edge strategy. I am a Certified Myofascial Trigger Point Therapist through Myopain Seminars since 2013.
I feel very blessed to have the privilege to work with so many wonderful patients and healthcare providers in the Coulee Region and beyond. I believe we can learn life lessons from every person we meet and can make a positive difference by a simple jester of friendship. I have always been compassionate about listening to patient’s stories and helping them find the right path towards their recovery from pain or injury. Randy and I have 2 adult children who are out in the world pursuing their dreams. We have lived in the Coulee Region for over 30 years. We enjoy being outdoors, sports, and family. I enjoy sewing, quilting, walking, and going on vacation.
