Hello! I am a Physical Therapist that wants to make a difference. I work hard at learning the best practices to help my clients achieve that but… I always play hard. I love to travel, explore new music, read, learn something new, and my greatest passion is to play/watch sports. Over the past few years I’ve increased my emphasis in wellness, promotion, active lifestyle options, and physical therapy’s role in that. With this blog, I hope to inspire others to do the same and create a link between health care and wellness in today’s world.
Jessica Johnson, PT or PTJess
I have over 9 years of Orthopedic Physical Therapy experience in private practice and more recently outpatient hospital based clinic specializing in wellness programs. I hope to bring fitness, coaching, ergonomics and Physical Therapy treatments to healthcare settings, gyms, homes and work. As many other healthcare professionals today I am struggling to find the ultimate experience where I can make a difference in my practice and still make ends meet.
