Jennifer specializes in manual therapy including soft tissue massage, Graston technique, cupping, joint mobilization, Kinesio taping, and manual stretching. Her mission as a physical therapist is to provide each and every one of her patients with the highest quality of care. After many years of practice in outpatient orthopaedics, Jennifer has become aware and frustrated by the limitations that health insurance companies place on their members and providers. As a result, she has started her own practice focusing on One-on-One care for her patients.
Jennifer has been recognized for her specialty in post-pregnancy rehabilitation. She has developed a protocol for the conservative physical therapy treatment of Diastasis Recti. This condition is the separation of the abdomen that occurs most commonly during or after pregnancy.
