What Is EA Therapeutic Health in Rochester, Minnesota?

Next time you drive on North Broadway by Bowlocity, keep your eyes on the road but glance quickly and see if you can find the building in the photo above.  It's located at 2530 N. Broadway Ave. and it is called EA Therapeutic Health.  (If you need directions to EA Therapeutic Health, I'll help you out...you can find it here.). Most people don't know this but they also have space in one of the buildings next door too!

Inside these buildings are rooms and talented people who are helping change lives each and every day.  Here's a little bit about their story:

In 2009, founder and CEO, Melanie Brennan, PT, DPT, identified a problem that needed to be solved – people of all ages with neurologic or medical conditions that impacted their physical mobility, cognitive awareness, and overall health were being dismissed much too soon from beneficial therapy services after life-changing diagnoses or neurologic injury due to arbitrary health insurance coverage issues. Because the decision to end services is made by lacking health insurance as the primary reason, their needs, and potential for benefit from ongoing rehabilitation were being ignored.

A safe and affordable place was needed in the community for people to go to continue their recovery to optimal health and independence that was accessible with advanced rehabilitation technologies, accessible adaptive equipment, and knowledgeable therapy and adaptive wellness staff. Melanie set to work to build a nonprofit company with this goal, and in 2011, ExercisAbilities was born. The organization was just rebranded as EA Therapeutic Health.

If you love a good french fry with your burger, or you just want to have a plate all to yourself, July 13th is a big day for you. It is National French Fry day! Yes, our beloved potato has its own day.

I asked a bunch of people what their favorite places were in town to grab a fry...or two. I learned that we have some very passionate french fry fanatics and as soon as we posted the question, e-mails started flying in on the best spots in town. Here are the top picks!
