Now that I am running on a collegiate level, I have been working harder than ever before. Having Jen guide me over the years on how to stay healthy, I have been able to find success at this new level of running without fear of injury. And while running injuries can be inevitable at times, because of Jen, I know how to get over them and come back stronger than ever.

Battling plantar fasciitis for almost a year had left me feeling hopeless and fearing that I would never run pain free again. I had seen two different PT’s with no success until I was referred to Jen. Upon seeing Jen I began to see results within the first month and now I feel like a whole new runner (and person).

Being an ultra marathon runner, there is a lot of strain on my legs. It took about couple months of painful practices and frustration to finally do something about it, but when I went to my first appointment about two years ago now, Dr. Jen Davis knew exactly what to do. With a couple Graston treatments, the scar tissue in my legs began to break down, and I was able to compete pain free. I was also given multiple exercises to prevent further injuries and to stay pain free. Thank you for everything!

I was referred to see Jen while I had a stubborn case of shin splints. Jen went above and beyond when it came to my recovery process. After a strength evaluation, she found the root of the problem to be coming from my hips. While treating my shin pain, Jen taught me new exercises that would both fix my weaknesses and prevent any future problems from happening. Thanks to working with Jen, I have become a stronger and more confident runner.

After a very frustrating 7-8 months & 3 physical therapists, 2 chiropractors, 2 sports medicine doctors doing orthopedic manipulation, multiple massage therapists & rest on my part, Jen was able to knock my lingering high hamstring injury out of the park with very specific exercises and manual therapy!!

I would recommend that anyone suffering from a chronic or acute pain see Jen. I can’t say enough about her proactive approach in identifying what caused the injury in the first place and making that the focus of her treatment plan. Also, you won’t believe how fast her manual therapy works in alleviating pain that you’ve been suffering for months.

I would highly recommend Jen to anyone without hesitation and would go back to her again if needed. She was a strong advocate for pre-surgery rehab and I am so glad I did. I feel this made my recovery go much faster and easier. Thanks Jen!

Being a runner for several decades and sustaining my share of injuries over the years, I thought my running days were over three years ago when hip and back problems finally caught up with me. I participated in the traditional rounds of physical therapy, deep massage, yoga, and acupuncture. All of these procedures helped get me out of the pain loop but I still couldn’t run.

Thank you Jen Davis in helping me fulfill a longtime goal of running a marathon! I would not have been able to complete this feat if it were not for Jen Davis and the expert advice, manual therapy procedures, exercise, training and rehabilitation. The manual therapy and following a daily regiment of exercises was a key in my recovery.Through those procedures, plan and constant encouragement I’m able to run pain free today. This is nothing short of a miracle.

– Dan Holstein

It is so great to hear you say that my form is great - that has NEVER been the case for me and it's all because of the work we did together in PT! You are so incredibly good at what you do, and I am so glad that I started seeing you. I never would have been able to run a marathon without you, and I'm sure that my long term health has been drastically changed for the better because of all the things you noticed and helped me correct about my form, balance, posture etc. THANK YOU!

– Bonnie McNeil

As an experienced running specialist & personal trainer for 30 years & a cancer survivor, finding a physical therapist that understood my lifestyle as well as one who was highly qualified, was challenging. That's why after meeting Jen several years ago, & learning about her positive connections to the running & wellness community & ultimately needing treatment to keep me able to live the super fit life I care so much about, was kismet.

– Wendy Berton

Jen told me she could get me running faster (at age 60?) and she did. I have had numerous PR’s in local runs, just finished the Hood to Coast with no issues and have my first 50k on the calendar in the Fall.
