Who I am
Hi, My name is Katie Jones and I have been a practicing physical therapist for over 20 years. My extensive experience includes working in the hospitals, with the young athlete and with the older adult. I specialize in fall prevention/balance, post-operative care, osteoarthritis, low back pain/sciatica, Parkinson’s, shoulder injuries and many other conditions. One of my passions is to keep the older adult mobile and strong for an improved quality of life.
I graduated from Kent State University in 1998 in Exercise Science and became a certified Athletic Trainer working with athletes at the high school and collegiate level where I gained immense knowledge in acute injury and triage. I worked as a certified athletic trainer while I went to physical therapy school at Cleveland State University. I graduated PT school in 2001 and worked in the acute care setting for 5 years gaining hospital experience. The past 16 years, I have worked in a continuum care retirement community helping a multitude of patients ranging from overuse injuries, chronic pain, balance disorders, low back pain, stroke recovery and neurological movement disorders.
A Typical In-Home Treatment
I will come to your home at an agreed time with a portable mat table, BP cuff, pulse oximeter, balance pad, light weights and resistance bands. I will evaluate your strength, motion, balance and assess any pain. At the initial evaluation, I will discuss a plan of care and goals with you. During your first session, I will treat your impairments and develop a home exercise program unique to your needs and personal goals. We will then discuss a follow-up plan based on these needs and any recommended wellness referrals.

Katie has always had an individualized approach to the specific needs of my family. We have sought her advice to help in many ways from reducing the chance of injuries, minimizing pain and improving mobility. Katie is very trustworthy and knowledgeable.
Katie's knowledge in her field is only surpassed by her compassion for the people she treats. Having a family of athletes, she is our "go to" person for any and all injuries. I trust her to get us back to 100% in no time from her diagnosis to her treatment plans. She is top notch!
Katie cares equally about my physical health as well as my mental health. She is very committed to alleviating pain through physical therapy and positivity. I highly recommend Katie as a physical therapist for moderate to severe chronic joint pain. I've trusted her for over 10 years as a health advocate on my medical care team for over 10 years,

Earlier in the summer 2021, I sustained a knee injury playing pickleball. Katie's assessment, with the resulting exercises and stretches, enabled me to work through the injury and get back on the court quickly. Throughout my treatment, her positive attitude and concern for my particular injury reflected the goal I had set to return to my former activity level. Additionally, by sticking to the plan she set up for me, I feel I am now stronger and more flexible than I was before the injury. I am grateful for her ability to listen to my concerns.
