Stephanie Jones is a proud alumna of Midwestern University in Downers Grove Illinois with her Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree in May 2019. She is also a certified Athletic Trainer and earned her Bachelor’s of Science in Athletic Training from Aurora University in 2012. She worked for multiple years as a high school athletic trainer where she found her love of working with the athletic population.
Stephanie has clinical experience working with a variety of orthopedic conditions; however, she has a special interest in treating athletic injuries such as throwing injuries, concussions, and post-operative patients. She has a passion for returning athletes back to their sport at their previous level of function. Stephanie is working towards a certification in tool based soft tissue mobilization technique called Hawk Grips as well as a dry needling certification. Both of these treatment techniques will allow her to have a wider skill set to better treat her patient population.
Stephanie also has a passion for treating vestibular patients including BPPV, vertigo due to vestibular hypofunction, and generalized balance and dizziness impairments. The dizzy patient often has a different set of goals they want to meet in vestibular physical therapy and Stephanie is happy when she can help them achieve their personal goals.
While treating her patients, Stephanie believes in a team approach while taking her patient’s wants and needs into their treatment sessions in order to provide a well-rounded and individualized plan of care. When Stephanie is not treating patients in the clinic, she enjoys spending time with her dog Pokey, playing softball, and spending time with her family and friends.
