Heidi Barufkin, Physical Therapy Assistant

For more than a decade, Heidi has worked as a Physical Therapy Assistant (PTA). In 2001, she received her Physical Therapy Assistant degree from the University of Indianapolis. She also has a Respiratory degree and a Phlebotomy certificate. Heidi believes in ongoing medical education and has supplemented her university education with extensive training in Kinesio Taping, Women’s Health, Aquatic Therapy and Sports Injury treatments.

A profound experience inspired Heidi to become a PTA. Her aunt was bedridden for months and unable to walk. For several weeks, Heidi worked with a PT to treat her aunt, whom regained the strength to walk again. To this day, Heidi approaches Physical Therapy the same way she first witnessed with her aunt. She believes each patient is unique and customizes treatment to their particular situation. Additionally, she believes in educating people about self-care and empowering them to continue strengthening and exercising on their own.

Prior to moving to Wisconsin in 2011, Heidi worked in the Chicago area. She grew-up in Chicago and northwest Indiana, is married and has two young boys. Heidi practices what she teaches and lives an active lifestyle. In addition to enjoying snowboarding, wake-boarding, rock climbing, dancing, cooking and kite boarding, she has completed a half-marathon.
