Jennifer Jones,DPT

Jennifer Jones, DPT is a native of Huntington, West Virginia. Her parents are both physical therapists, so she saw the benefits of physical therapy first hand through the impact they had on their patients.

Jennifer earned Bachelor degrees in Biology and Health Sciences from Duquense University, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  She obtained a Doctorate of Physical Therapy from The University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences, where her studies focused on Dr. Stanley Paris’s manual therapy techniques, including soft tissue and joint mobilization as well as myofascial release. She has worked primarily in outpatient orthopedics, treating a variety of patients including post-operative rehab, TMJ (jaw) pain and disorders, sports injuries, and facilitating return to sports program for athletes. Jennifer enjoys treating patients with all types of musculoskeletal problems.  She incorporates her advanced coursework in kinesiotaping and Leukotaping, Total Motion Release, Kevin Wilk’s treatment of shoulder and knee injuries, and the Sara Meeks Method of postural correction for patients with osteoporosis, into her practice. She continues to expand her knowledge base and clinical skills through ongoing continuing education.

Jennifer believes that to have successful outcomes, more than just the injured area needs to be assessed and, if necessary, treated as well. She provides patients with one-on-one attention, educating them about their condition, and ensuring that they are able to take that knowledge home in the form of exercise and self-care activities.

Jennifer enjoys practicing Yoga and Pilates, playing tennis and soccer, and taking part in a variety of outdoor activities while living near Lake Norman. She also remains a loyal Pittsburgh Steelers fan. “After living in the North and the South, I love this area where I can enjoy all four seasons,” Jennifer says. “I have met a lot of great people in Charlotte.  I look forward to serving my patients at Saylor Physical Therapy and becoming more involved in this community.”
