Mindy Bierlein is a Doctor of Physical therapy, and is pleased to be now providing physical therapy services so close to home. Mindy is a 2007 graduate of the University of Michigan – Flint with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Human Biology. She then continued graduate studies at the University of Michigan – Flint and earned her Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree in 2010.
Upon graduating, Mindy returned to the Saginaw-Bay region and began her career in outpatient orthopedics, both in the private practice and hospital settings. She is now excited and enthusiastic to be joining Renue Physical Therapy in order to continue to provide the patient-centered model of care that they have become known for. Mindy believes in providing the highest level of compassionate one-on-one care throughout therapy, supporting a hands-on manual approach in addition to therapeutic exercise and modalities as needed to both meet the needs of the patient and assist in pain management. Mindy treats a wide-variety of outpatient orthopedic, neuromuscular, and musculoskeletal disorders of patients of all ages – from pediatrics to the geriatric population. These include but are not limited to the following: neck and back pain, extremity pain, post-operative rehabilitation, sports injuries, whiplash associated disorder, worker’s compensation injuries, chronic pain issues, gait dysfunctions, vestibular disorders, balance issues, and fall prevention. Mindy also completed extensive course-work and is now STAR certified for cancer rehabilitation.

Mindy, formerly of Frankenmuth, now resides in Vassar with her husband and newborn son. She remains very active in both communities as well as her church, singing in the praise band and an instructor for the Girls of Grace Dance Ministry.

Bruce practiced as a Registered Nurse in the Maternal Child Health Nursing for seven years, this experience included labor and delivery as well as pediatrics. Bruce has practiced as a PT for the past 28 years with experience in Orthopedic and Sports Medicine as well as working with a multidisciplinary back rehab team for a number of years. That involvement moved Bruce into developing an innovative Perinatal Back Rehabilitation Program in 2000. This program has been very successful in treatment of thoracic, back, and pelvic pain in the perinatal clientele as well as expanding to a wide range of pelvic floor dysfunctions and abdominal pelvic dysfunctions in a broader population of patients. 

Over the past 11 years, Bruce has been responsible for the development of a new Women’s Health/Pelvic Health program in the Tri-Cities of Michigan. He has practiced exclusively in treating women’s health issues including treatment of pain during and after pregnancy as well as pelvic pain and dysfunction, urinary and bowel incontinence in women and men. He has also treated children with bowel dysfunctions. 

Bruce frequently speaks as a guest lecturer at a number of Colleges/Universities in Michigan to nurses, physicians and physical therapists. He has traveled to Africa to provide medical care and education with midwives and other professionals on two occasions. Bruce is committed to providing compassionate, comprehensive care to all patients as well as promoting and providing continuing education regarding this specialized area of care.

Bridgeport Testimonials:
"Being told that your two-year old needs physical therapy is a scary and intimidating experience. However, from our first appointment at Renue, we felt at ease and comfortable. The staff was accommodating, friendly, and professional. The therapist was amazing with our daughter and was able to make it fun and enjoyable for her. We are more the pleased with our experience and results. Thank you." (Stephanie)
"He was great. I had a lot of doubts. I could not see how my pelvis was causing all my problems but it was. I feel great! Thank you Bruce so much." (Mary Ann)
"The help and therapy was the best I have received from any of the other places I have gone to. In short, a “job well done” is in order and I am referring all my friends. Again, thank you." (Ken)
"Bruce words cannot express my satisfaction with the Renue experience. The intimate therapy was never uncomfortable or embarrassing. The entire staff rocks!!! I ended my therapy feeling totally Renued!!"  (Judy)
"My time in therapy was very educational and extremely beneficial to my mind and body. My strength has improved and my back hasn’t hurt bad since Mindy helped build up my muscles in my back and stomach." (Brian)
"I have been through physical therapy before at other places and it seemed like I was on an assembly line going from one machine to the other, sometimes but not always, with little interaction with the PT. I felt that Mindy cared for me not only as a patient who needed therapy but also as a person who was in pain." (Janet)
"I never had physical therapy before and my experience at Renue was really great. My pain was minimized and the exercises I was given were so effective." (Carol)
"Mindy was a very caring person with my individual situation and not only took care of the PT but caring and concerned with me as a person." (Margie)
"Very satisfied. My physical therapist knew what exercises to do which gave me back the use of my arm. Along with treatments like the ultrasound that were very effective." (Lawrence)
"How many times can I say, “great” service. Couldn’t even stand straight when I first came in. Mindy explained my condition so thoroughly that I even understand my body better." (Margaret)
