What We Do

JEMPT has designed an innovative combination of manual orthopedic and visceral physical therapy that has resulted in rapid decrease of pain and symptoms along with a return to full recovery. Our therapists are highly skilled in using their hands to palpate sites of joint and soft tissue dysfunction and to use site-specific manual therapy to address these issues. With personalized expertise and positive outcomes in dealing with chronic pelvic pain and dysfunction, JEMPT specializes in treating patients that have been unable to find relief with traditional therapy.

What We Believe

We believe all parts of the body that have some association with any dysfunction should be examined and treated, which is a foreign concept to traditional therapy. The human body is a complex system that is dependent on the well-being of the joints, muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments, arterial supply, and the viscera, demanding more than stretching and strengthening exercises for optimal healing.

Our Philosophy of Care

The way we care for our patients is about more than their physical wellbeing as we are also invested in their emotional and spiritual well being. JEMPT provides a place for patients to be accountable and to find hope and healing so that they can began to live. We want them to know that they are not their infertility or their pain and that as their bodies begin to heal, they will able to see beyond their pain and/or infertility and they will see all their new options for life. This process and understanding allows them to heal physically, emotionally and spiritually, providing new purpose and fresh direction.
