Abby Baalman, D.P.T.

Doctor of Physical Therapy

Abby was born and raised in Brussels, Illinois. While participating in high school sports, Abby was injured and completed her own bout of physical therapy at the Wellness Center in Jerseyville; this is where her interest in physical therapy first arose. Abby graduated from Brussels High School in 2011 and went on to pursue her degree in Physical Therapy. Abby received her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Maryville University in St. Louis, Missouri in December 2017. Prior to receiving her Doctorate degree, she completed her undergraduate work also at Maryville University earning a Bachelor of Health Science degree. Abby began work with Alton Physical Therapy in February 2018.

Abby enjoys working with patients of all age groups in the outpatient setting especially those with pre and post-operative orthopedic injuries, gross motor development of pediatrics, and preventative and post-injury athletes. She also offers rehabilitative specialty services including dry needling and BPPV treatment. Abby currently resides in Brussels, Illinois with her husband and two sons. She is very excited to be helping residents of her home community with their rehab needs.

Becky joined Alton Physical Therapy in 2007. Previous to coming on board with APT, Becky was the front desk receptionist for a local Orthopedic Physician who had retired. Prior to working in the orthopedic office, she worked in the Rehab Department of CHNE. Each of these fields of service has given Becky an insight into some of the details of the inpatient and outpatient sides of rehab care.

Becky enjoys meeting new and familiar faces and feels it a privilege to serve in the front desk position at both Hardin and Alton locations.
