Your Physical Therapy Team
Jessica Benson, PT, DPT
Doctor of Physical Therapy
Jessica is from Lemoore, California which is a small town in Central California. She participated in school sports, but spent most of her extracurricular time competing in gymnastics and cheerleading. She even competed in gymnastics at the California Junior Olympics at the age of 12. She was also a cheerleading and tumbling coach during high school and college.
In high school, she decided to pursue a career in physical therapy after she enrolled in a student athletic training class providing treatment to the Lemoore High School athletes. She received her Master of Physical Therapy Degree and Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from California State University, Fresno. During and after physical therapy school, she volunteered for a power wheelchair soccer team when they played against other California power wheelchair soccer teams. By volunteering for the Central Valley Ghostriderz, she was able to coach athletes in power wheelchairs that have disorders such as spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, or muscular dystrophy.
Jessica has been continuing her physical therapy education by enrolling in courses to gain additional knowledge on manual therapy and fascial movement techniques in order to provide exceptional care to her patients. Jessica is certified in ROCKTAPE FMT Basic (kinesiology tape), ROCKTAPE FMT Blades (IASTM tools), Smart Cuffs Level 1 Blood Flow Restriction Certification, and Certified Yoga Instructor (CYT-200) which allows her to provide different treatment techniques to her patients. She enjoys working with a wide range of patient populations and strives to help her patients return to their desired level of function. Her clinical experience includes treating patients with acute and chronic injuries as well as pre and post-operative care. She also incorporates education into her treatment sessions to help her patients understand their recovery process.
Jessica moved up to Oregon in 2014 with her fiance as he is pursuing a career in Optometry. Outside of work, Jessica enjoys spending time with her fiance and their Standard Poodle, Frank, while they visit local wineries, go hiking and participate in stand up paddleboarding.
