Aveanna Physical Therapist Brennan Visser joined our team in Richmond, Virginia, two years ago. From the very beginning Brennan has demonstrated dedication, professionalism, and a desire to continue to grow and develop her clinical skills. She works in a variety of settings, including early intervention and outpatient, and enjoys working with a variety of diagnoses and ages.

Brennan is adept at finding her client’s strengths and interests and using them to help them overcome challenges to be able to participate in family and community activities. She is creative with adapting equipment to provide the supports her clients need to meet their outcomes. Brennan values the relationships that she is able to build with her clients and their families and provides them with the support they need for success.

When she is not at work, Brennan enjoys taking her 2 dogs down to the James River for a swim. She is also a competitive soccer player. Those fast feet help her keep up with the little ones at our clinic!

We are so honored to have Brennan on our Richmond PT team. Thank you, Brennan, for everything you do. Happy PT Month!

Siblings Alexandra and Levi both live with challenging conditions that can limit their independence at times. But with the help of their Aveanna Physical Therapist, Brennan, these two are gaining new skills and increasing their confidence and autonomy every day.

Alexandra has arthrogryposis multiplex congenita, which has resulted in multiple contractures in her legs. Alexandra was primarily using a wheelchair until her surgery last year and a lot of hard work in PT. After months of strengthening, balance exercises, and gait training, Alexandra is now able to walk without an assistive device for shorter distances. She has gained a lot of great new skills, such as going up and down the stairs independently and climbing up the ladder to go down the slide.

Levi lives with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a genetic condition that causes progressive muscle weakness. Physical therapy has helped Levi maintain independence with daily activities, including playing with his siblings. Alexandra and Levi both enjoy riding an adaptive bike around our clinic and hope to be able to get one for use at their home as well.

We are so proud of Alexandra and Levi for all their hard work and amazing progress. Happy PT Month to Alexandra, Levi, and PT Brennan!
