Stretch PT & Wellness - June 2018

Meet Laura BrennanO’Lannerghty!

The Newest Addition to the Stretch PT Family

As Stretch Physical Therapy continues to grow, we strive to maintain the personal relationships that make our clinic such a powerful, welcoming place for our patients. Whenever we bring a new member into our team, we ensure that, first and foremost, they’re dedicated to changing patients’ lives for the better. That’s why we’re so thrilled to have our newest physical therapist, Laura Brennan O’Lannerghty, join the Stretch family this month! With her service-minded, empathetic, and comprehensive approach to therapy, we’re certain that patients will love working with her. To L.B. (as she’s known by her friends and family), the patients are the best part of her PT career.“I get to connect with my patients every day,”she says.“I’m a big people person, so the opportunity to hear their stories, where they’re at in life, and where they want to go with treatment is so important to me. It’s something that not a lot of health professionals really get to do, so I’m grateful to get the chance to truly get to know people and watch as they push toward their goals with every session.” With a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from St. Louis University and previous experience at an orthopedic practice in California, L.B. has a unique perspective on the PT field. She takes the best of both East- andWest-Coast schools of thought and combines them into a single, holistic approach to care.

But perhaps her most valuable trait is her passion for helping people make tangible, positive changes in their lives. “I love what I do!” she says with characteristic enthusiasm. “Sometimes I feel like a dork because I actually get excited to go to work.” Outside of the clinic, L.B. loves spending time with her boyfriend and playing with her two energetic dogs, an older lab mix named Lizzie and a “crazy” little border collie puppy named Quinn. She tries to stay as active as possible, taking her pups on hikes or hanging out with her friends.

We’re lucky to have L.B. move out to Ohio all the way from California. If you see her at the clinic, come say hi! We certainly can’t wait to see all the amazing things she accomplishes at Stretch Physical Therapy in the years to come.


Balsamic Chicken With Bacon and Apples

With this one-pan wonder, you can complete an entire meal in under an hour. It tastes delicious and makes your kitchen smell heavenly.


10 ounces Brussels sprouts, halved, stems removed 2 apples, cored, peeled, and coarsely chopped

1 1/2 pounds chicken breast, cut into pieces

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1/2 cup olive oil


6 slices bacon, cut into squares

Juice of 1/2 lemon

Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1/4 cup rosemary, finely chopped


1. Blend balsamic vinegar, olive oil, lemon, rosemary, and garlic to create marinade. Pour into bowl or sealable bag and add chicken. Marinate for at least 5 minutes or up to 12 hours. The longer you marinate, the more flavorful the chicken will be. 2. Heat oven to 375 F. Spread Brussels sprouts, bacon, and apples on a baking sheet. Add chicken and pour any extra marinade over the top. Season with salt and pepper. 3. Bake 20–25 minutes until chicken is cooked through. For extra crunchiness, turn the heat up to 425 F for the last 5 minutes. 4. Transfer to platter and serve immediately. 513-874-8800 Inspired by
