Jennifer Roye is a board certified Doctor of Physical Therapy with special training in the McKenzie Method, Blood Flow Restriction and the M1 Graston Technique. She specializes in the McKenzie Assessment and Treatment for Spine and Extremities and received her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from The University of Mississippi Medical Center.
After her great aunt experienced a significant stroke, she was inspired by the team of therapists that came alongside her throughout her hospitalization and recovery. Jennifer realized she wanted to be the person who impacted the lives of the patients and their families by helping them return to the activities they love. She believes that a holistic approach to treatment is essential to help patients achieve their optimal potential. Active listening and thorough assessments help ensure patients are treated utilizing an individualized plan of care for nothing is routine when dealing with the lives of other people.
One patient recovery story that continues to inspire Jennifer is from a patient that suffered an ankle fracture. “After suffering an ankle fracture and working diligently in therapy and at home to address range of motion, strength, and balance deficits, my patient informed me that she had returned to her prior level of function and hobbies. While she was in her early eighties, she assured me she was as active as ever after her injury. After completing her rehab, she had returned to hiking the upper peninsula of Michigan, chasing waterfalls, and observing colorful fall foliage. When checking back in with me, she states, “ I keep doing my exercises, not every day, but enough to keep me going.” As a therapist, my primary goal is to help patients have the highest quality of life and return to the activities that bring them joy and fulfillment.”
Jennifer enjoys the opportunity to be able to help patients work through challenging days and offer encouragement and perspective while helping them achieve their optimal potential over the course of the recovery process to return to their highest level of function, whether that is returning to a sport or being able to enjoy traveling after retirement.
She now lives in West Point, MS with her husband, Adam and British Labrador, Doc and enjoys traveling, hiking, photography and attending Mississippi State sporting events.
