Jessica is a licensed physical therapist who specializes in manual physical therapy, as well as a professional yoga therapist. She has combined her passions of physical therapy and yoga with the creation of Integrative Rehab and Wellness, in order to facilitate a healing environment that supports overall health and well-being.
Jessica completed her Masters Degree in Physical Therapy at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA. The majority of her post –professional manual therapy training has been through Michigan State University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine. This training has provided her with the tools necessary to successfully treat a variety of conditions including back and neck pain, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, sciatica, musculoskeletal issues (shoulders, hips, knees, etc), chronic pain, fibromyalgia, migraines/headaches, anxiety, arthritis, and TMJ. She completed her dry needling certification through Dr. Ma’s Integrative Dry Needling Program and has found this technique to be a highly effective form of physical therapy for musculoskeletal and neuromuscular conditions, as well as injury prevention and performance enhancement.
She has found through her own yoga practice that the benefits of yoga are endless both physically and mentally. The key benefit is an overall state of health and well-being. She has completed my medical therapeutic yoga training through the Professional Yoga Therapy Program (PYT) developed by Ginger Garner, PT, ATC, PYT in Emerald Isle, NC. She would like to recognize and thank Ginger, as well as Shelly Prosko, founder of Physio Yoga in western Canada, as a constant source of knowledge, inspiration, and encouragement.
