You Can Keep Up with Jones
Today at Jones Physical Therapy
We serve the people of West St Tammany and Tangipahoa parishes through our Madisonville, LA and Hammond, LA Northshore physical therapy clinics. Our therapists are educated in the latest Physical Therapy techniques and trends and work hard to exceed your expectations.
A typical day at Jones Physical Therapy will have us working with several people who have had surgery or are recovering from an injury. We regularly see patients who have had reconstructive surgery on the shoulder, knee surgery, joint replacements and spinal surgery. We also treat sports injuries, back pain and neck pain and work related injuries.
Our evening clinics in Madisonville allow people to attend therapy without disrupting their work, sports or school schedules. Most evenings we find ourselves treating back pain and foot and ankle problems such as achilles tendonitis and ankle sprains. Some evening attendees have more serious injuries such as an ACL reconstruction or meniscus tears but are still attending school or working so prefer an evening appointment.
