The Youngsville facility, located at 302 Lafayette Street, is the 10th MTS Physical Therapy and Wellness site in Acadiana. In a release, Ochsner Lafayette General said the need for high-quality therapy and injury-prevention services has grown as the City of Youngsville has expanded.
“Patients are living longer, fuller lives, and that is a testament to the modern medical techniques we put into practice every day,” said JD Boudreaux, the director of sports medicine at Ochsner Lafayette General. “Ochsner Lafayette General is proud to partner with MTS to offer those techniques to the residents of Youngsville and Acadiana.”

Local businesses sign on to support annual kinesiology scholarships
Numerous local businesses and franchisees have once again signed on to help fund the David Trosclair Memorial Kinesiology Scholarships, which are named in honor of a UL kinesiology student who died just before his graduation.
Each year, Carol Trosclair, David’s mother, spearheads a fundraiser to fund the scholarships. The fundraiser, now in its 11th year, offers a vacation for two from the Travel Machine to the person who contributes the most funds, either by buying tickets, selling tickets or donating to the fund.

In exchange for a $10 donation, people receive a ticket that can be redeemed for one of several prizes offered by local businesses. In September, the tickets can be used to get a free $25 car wash at Todd’s Car Wash, or a free hamburger or cheeseburger at Judice Inn.
In October, tickets can be used to get a free flatbread at Tropical Smoothie, or a free drip coffee or tea along with a pastry at Rêve Coffee Roasters. In November, the tickets can be exchanged for a free six-inch wrap at Roly Poly or a free loaf of bread at Great Harvest Bread.
“David was not able to fulfill the entirety of his career goals, but through his scholarships he is helping others fulfill their ambitions – and so in this way David’s aspirations are reached through the successful careers of those who receive his scholarship,” Carol Trosclair said in a release.
