At JAM Physical Therapy, I help you recover from a surgery or an athletic injury using the most current and researched methods available. My comprehensive treatment approach translates into a faster recovery and being more cost-efficient.

As a physical therapist, I use specialized rehabilitation techniques. I understand that achieving optimal performance following an injury requires more than traditional or basic physical therapy that is offered at most clinics. My training allows me to seamlessly transition you from a basic rehabilitation program into a post-rehabilitation program designed to fully prepare you for your sport or job, while also providing you with injury-prevention skills to help maintain a healthier, pain-free life.

I can assist with post-surgical rehabilitation, acute athletic injury rehabilitation, overuse or chronic injury rehabilitation, running assessments, sports performance training and second opinions for evaluations and exercise prescriptions. Every patient I treat will receive a thorough evaluation of their injury or deficits. I will examine their entire body for contributing factors and provide information on the probable causes to prevent future injuries of the same nature. Following each assessment, I will create an individualized recovery plan that will be tailored to address each patient’s unique needs.

In today’s healthcare market, you have many options where you can receive your physical therapy care. As the owner of JAM Physical Therapy, I pride myself on giving every patient unparalleled care during every visit. I would be honored to help you in your recovery.

Motor Vehicle Accidents (MVA)
An auto accident is always stressful – from car replacement to aches and pains. Physical therapy doesn’t have to add to that stress. Through regular visits, I will help you regain your motion and eliminate aches and pains. Unfortunately, your car is another matter!

Running Assessment
A running assessment is a comprehensive biomechanical evaluation performed on a treadmill by a therapist who is specially trained in running mechanics. Following your assessment, you will be provided with a comprehensive report that includes individual footwear recommendations, an explanation of your running mechanics and extensive corrective exercises. You will also receive a personalized CD/DVD that contains your running evaluation.

Manual Techniques
Through specialized, hands-on techniques, I can get you moving again. My innovative treatment plans can produce better outcomes in fewer visits, and are therefore more cost effective.

Functional Movement System (FMS)
A Functional Movement System (FMS) is a ranking/grading system that documents movement patterns that are essential for normal function. By screening these patterns, an FMS can identify functional limitations and asymmetries and then generate a score which is used to target problems and track progress. This system is directly linked to the most beneficial corrective exercises to restore mechanically-sound movement patterns. Learn more at www.functionalmovement.com
