Hey everyone, it’s Doctor Jo! I am a licensed Physical Therapist, and I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy.

I graduated from PT school at the University of South Carolina in 2007, and I started my PT career at a rehabilitation hospital. This was a great place to learn about EVERYTHING. You name it, we saw it! I have worked in many different settings including outpatient, acute care, aquatics, and inpatient rehabilitation in both private and hospital-based clinics.

Before PT school, however, I began a very different career. I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication. During undergrad, I played soccer, and to make me more injury prone, I was a goalkeeper! I had many injuries through out my soccer career, and I had PT several different times. Some of it was really good, and some of it was really bad. So I always had the thought of becoming a PT in the back of my mind. After several years of working at a desk and in an office with no windows, I decided it was time to give this PT thing another look. So I headed off to USC and never looked back!

The reason I started this website is to continue to help people as much as I can. More and more often, healthcare professionals, especially in the therapy field, are getting road blocked by insurance caps, limited visits, and very high co-pays for patients. Sometimes there is just not enough time to give all the instruction a patient truly needs. This website is not designed to make people stop going to their doctor or therapist or to replace information they have given them, it’s just to help you along the way. Nothing beats a professional PT instructing you in person where they can make sure you are doing things correctly.

I am not an actress by any means, but I do love being silly and dressing my pups up in fun outfits for you to enjoy. My brother, who is the behind the scenes guy, has much more experience than I do, and he has even appeared in some pretty famous movies! He is the one who helps make me look like I know what I am doing.

Finally, you will notice lots of pups making cameos in my videos. They are all my pound puppies and are always ready for their close-ups! A couple of the pups featured in my older videos (Molly & Bailey) have moved on to the rainbow bridge, but hopefully they will all make you smile when you are not feeing your best.

So there you have it, and here I am, Doctor Jo at your service. Be safe, have fun, and I hope you feel better soon!
