Jessica Turner, PT, DPT, OCS Physical Therapist
I received my Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Nebraska Medical Center in 2010 and am a board certified orthopaedic clinical specialist. I’m currently undergoing Fellowship training in orthopaedic manual therapy through Evidence In Motion. During the past six years, I’ve worked primarily in outpatient orthopaedics with a special interest in shoulder, spine, and pain management. As education is important to me, I regularly lecture at local universities and am actively involved in the Nebraska Physical Therapy Association.
Why Physical Therapy?
Physical therapists (PT) are experts in the way the body moves. They are an integral part of your care team at Think and work side by side with your doctor. Our Doctors of Physical Therapy use scientifically-based techniques to improve pain and function and prevent injury or disability, so that you can get moving at your personal best.
If you are looking for an alternative to surgery, pain medication, or if you notice changes in your strength, balance or walking ability, consider physical therapy.
PTs help restore motion, strength and endurance to improve your overall function and quality of life.
Some of the Conditions We Treat
Your PT will develop a treatment program for your individual needs and goals.Treatment may emphasize pain reduction, strengthening, flexibility, postural alignment, balance, gait and endurance training to manage movement problems associated with:
- Orthopedic conditions (like acute or chronic pain from arthritis, injury, or surgery)
- Neurological conditions (such as stroke, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis)
- Cardiac or pulmonary conditions (heart attack, bypass surgery or COPD)
What can you expect from a Physical Therapist?
After careful examination, your PT will combine science with inspiration to teach you how to prevent or manage a health condition and help motivate you during your treatment so you can function optimally. Your PT will help you understand your body so you will achieve long-term health benefits.
