“After I suffered a wrist injury, I had a few sessions with other therapists. Fortunately, by my fourth appointment I was lucky enough to have a therapy session with Jo! She is very knowledgeable and helped me to gain a full recovery. She educated me, kept me engaged during therapy, and will always be my “go-to” hand therapist. I highly recommend Jo.”


“I came to Jo with a broken/painful finger. After my first session, I felt confident: She is an experienced, kind, professional “CHT” (Certified Hand Therapist). She was absolutely caring, helpful and showed me exercises to heal my finger quickly and properly. Jo really does care and is amazing on all your need and concerns. I highly recommend her!”
