Bria Varner, PT, DPT, NCS

2017 Recipient of the Early Career Professional Award

Bria Varner

Dr. Bria Varner is a 2011 graduate of the Hardin-Simmons University DPT program and a current physical therapist with Hendrick Health System, specializing in patients with disabilities and with neurological conditions. Prior to her work there she was a physical therapist for the South Texas Rehabilitation Hospital, specializing in care for patients with neurological conditions and facilitating the monthly journal club there. In both of her roles she has participated in process and career development programs in addition to her clincal care. 

    In 2016, she received her NCS certification and in 2017 was presented with the ANPT Early Career Professional Award. Reflecting on her experience at CSM, she states "CSM 2017 was my first CSM to attend and I was blown away! There were so many people there and I could feel the passion each one felt for our profession buzzing in the educational sessions, the exhibition hall, even in the hallways! I learned some great new techniques that I could put into practice in treating my patients when I returned to them the following week. I also learned new strategies that have helped to inform the equipment purchasing and program development going on at my hospital. I also enjoyed the chance to meet new therapy friends and see some old ones at the Myelin Melter and the NCS breakfast."

    In addition to her clinical work, Dr. Varner maintains a blog with frequent updates on neurologic physical therapy, which she prepares for both patients and clinicians. Her work can be found at http://briavarner.wordpress.com.
