Dr. Jessica Thompson, PT, DPT
Pelvic and Perinatal Physical Therapist
After graduating from the University of Southern Mississippi with a Bachelor’s in Kinesiotherapy, I was a therapy aide in a 100% pelvic floor therapy clinic. Through this experience I saw that mothers’ largest barriers to treatment were guilt and access to care. Without child care, many women could not come to the clinic to be treated. Those that could come expressed guilt about prioritizing their health. I knew that someday I would find a way to make sure all women knew that choosing to take care of themselves is selfless and necessary to serving their family.
I later entered the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program at Mercer University with the goal of becoming a pelvic PT, but while I was there I also saw the need for health promotion in our community. As a student physical therapist, I volunteered at The Good Samaritan Clinic in Atlanta helping community members with diabetes manage their disease with exercise. I strive to encourage folks (especially folks of color) to allow healthcare to happen through them and not to them by being active in managing their disease processes.
Oftentimes we hear the statistics, look at our family history and accept poor health outcomes as an inheritance. However, regardless of these facts, I believe we all have the power to develop generational health. I’d love to help you on this journey of cultivating a legacy of health for you and your family for years to come.
