About Us

Our Company

Neaux Excuses Physical Therapy, founded in 2018, provides innovative physical therapy and wellness services to residents of Youngsville, Lafayette, Broussard, and Scott.

With two convenient locations in the Acadiana, we are able to provide one-on-one sessions with an experienced Physical Therapist. Although we are located inside CrossFit boxes (or gyms), we have a private treatment room.

Our goal is to help you achieve optimal physical functioning, and we start each first visit with a thorough assessment to determine the cause of your pain or dysfunction. Then we customize a treatment that includes prescribed exercises to be done at home between visits, enabling you to be a partner in your own care.

Our unique business model in our area allows us to spend the full hour with you that clinics dependent on the dictates of insurance providers cannot do. We know from research and experience that the hour-long visit leads to a faster and more complete recovery and fewer visits in the long term, ultimately saving health care investments in the long term.

 We are distinguished as well by having a Fellowship trained physical therapist in house. Founder and Physical Therapist Lauren Stone is one of this elite group of highly trained health professionals.

We offer a broad range of services that includes both physical and manual therapy, dry needling, sports injury treatment and sports conditioning, pre and post-surgical rehabilitation, and nutrition consultations.

 

Lauren Stone, PT, DPT

Lauren Stone’s youthful career as a high level gymnast resulted in a myriad of injuries that first introduced her to the benefits of care from a physical therapist.

“They were so amazing in helping me heal and get back to the active life that I wanted,” she recalls. “That’s what made me decide that was the career for me and I never changed my mind. I want to help people heal and get back to the sports they love, not sit on the sidelines.”

Lauren achieved her Bachelor of Science degree from Louisiana State University (LSU) followed by her Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree from LSU’s Health Science Center in New Orleans.

In December, 2018, she joined an elite group of physical therapists by completing her Fellowship Training through the Manual Therapy Institute.

Additionally, she is a Certified in Dry Needling and has CrossFit Level 1 Certification.

She gained experience as an outpatient physical therapist prior to opening her own clinic in Youngsville, Louisiana. 

A member of the American Physical Therapists Association, when she is not working she loves to spend time playing with her daughter, exercising, and working in the yard.
