Stan’s Fit For Your Feet and New Balance Milwaukee
are proud to partner with medical professionals throughout the Greater Milwaukee area. Though our Certified Pedorthists
and Fit Specialists are experts when it comes to finding the best shoes, insoles and accessories for your unique lifestyle needs, nobody knows everything. We rely on the expertise of podiatrists, physical therapists, chiropractors, nurses and other people in medical fields to guarantee we are offering their patients and our customers the highest quality service available.
It goes without saying that we are very fortunate to have both Dr. Jurinek and Dr. McCartan offering their wide-ranging skills and training to help our customers walk out of our stores with great footwear AND a better understanding of how to move through their day in a healthy way.
Dr. Abigail Jurinek
Dr. Abigail Jurinek received her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Bradley University in Peoria, Ill. in 2010. She previously studied health science and biology at Bradley.
Dr. Jurinek has worked with PROCare Physical Therapy for three years. She has a strong background in treating orthopedic conditions and using an evidence-informed approach to treatments. She takes special care to continue pursuing and utilizing the most up-to-date treatment approaches to best serve her patients and clients. In addition to being a Doctor of Physical Therapy, Dr. Jurinek is a Certified Myofascial Trigger Point Therapist (CMTPT).
In her free time, Dr. Jurinek enjoys camping, snowboarding, mountain biking and playing board games with her husband.
She summarizes her treatment goals as being focused on the person in front of her:
“My patient care philosophy is all about the patient. I find it important to listen carefully to what people are telling me from day one; what their restrictions are, what they enjoy doing that they really want to get back to, their pain patterns and goals for therapy. It is important for me to communicate well with my patients on the ‘why’ of therapy. People should know why I am having them do a certain exercise or why I am doing certain manual techniques. Therapists do not just do ‘massage’ or have people ‘exercise’ just because. There is always a reason for it, and if you don’t know why, then you better ask, because it is important to always know the reason for doing something. I love the people I get to meet as a physical therapist, and my goal truly is to help people get back on track and get them the tools needed to continue their success on their own!”
