After fracturing his ankle playing football as a linebacker for Paul Laurence Dunbar, Braden Plowman, PT, DPT underwent several months of physical therapy, which resulted in an exceptionally positive therapeutic outcome and a new idea for a career.
Braden attended the University of Kentucky where he, first earned a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology and health promotion. He graduated, again, from the University of Kentucky as a Doctor of Physical Therapy in 2011.
He then began his career with Professional Rehab Associates (PRA), PSC, a rehabilitation company with a long history of serving central Kentucky. With an eager spirit and deeply ingrained work ethic, Braden learned from PRA owners Mark Brooks PT, DSc, ECS, OCS, Margaret Brooks, PT, DPT and Dee Crossfield, PT about how to erase the division between quality patient care and sustainable business practices.
Over the course of 5 years, Braden has been promoted from staff physical therapist, to director of rehab and finally to regional director of outpatient services. Today, Braden manages all PRA’s outpatient clinics as well as directs several other outpatient locations as a consultant/manager for partnering companies. As well as being a manager, Braden’s skills as a physical therapist are highly regarded in Paris, KY, where he still treats patients on a weekly basis. Of all the titles Braden holds, his favorites are husband to Ashley, father to his daughter, Charlee, and his Rottweiler, Hank.
PRA is proud to open their newest location, along with Dr. Freels and Dr. Ellsworth, right here within Lexington Podiatry where the commitment to exemplary patient care and efficiently returning patients to their prior level of function are shared equally.
