Jessica Maxwell, PT, DPT, PhD has been practicing Physical Therapy in the Boston and the Metro West areas for almost 25 years. She has been a full-time professor in Massachusetts Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) programs since 2007, and holds a PhD in Public Health from Boston University.
Jessica has residency training in orthopedic manual therapy and achieved Board Certification in Orthopedics from the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties. Her clinical expertise is in the examination and treatment of spinal and lower extremity conditions, to which she brings her manual therapy experience as well as her knowledge of therapeutic exercise- of which she has developed two courses for DPT students. Jessica also has a particular interest in treating aging adults with core stabilization and balance activities aimed at preventing falls and allowing aging adults to continue to participate in home and community activities.
Jessica's PhD is in Epidemiology. Her dissertation work studied home and community participation of people after total knee replacements. While Jessica continues to study arthritis and orthopedic conditions, and had a paper published in the International Journal of Sports Physical Therapy in December, 2020, her more recent research focus has been in promoting the role of physical therapists in health promotion and wellness. Jessica was part of a national group of researchers who published two papers in the Physical Therapy Journal in 2020 on this expanding area of PT practice. Jessica wants the public to understand that the same knowledge and skills that PTs provide to their patients after an injury or illness can be equally helpful in preventing such physical limitations. In this vein, Jessica started the Balance and Core Exercise class for aging adults, performs PT Annual Check-ups for anyone, and is available for private consultation and assessment for anyone struggling with their physical health or health promoting activities.
Jessica is excited to bring her passion for evidence-based physical therapy and health promotion to her community, and looks forward to welcoming you to Preservation PT and Wellness!
