Jerry Sorensen has over 28 years of physical therapy experience. During his career he has worked in orthopedic and neurological treatment in outpatient, acute care, long term care and home health settings.
Besides his physical therapy degree he also holds a degree in Sociology: “I believe that this combination of education gives me an advantage in understanding the social needs, as well as the physical needs, of those with whom I am fortunate enough to provide services. I am a proponent of holistic treatment that involves a client-centered approach to maximize healing, independence, self-determination and dignity,” says Sorensen.
Jerry grew up in a small town in Idaho, and appreciates the challenges faced by busy individuals and families in scheduling therapy. Not only is it more convenient for patients and their families to receive services locally but you also don’t want treatments effectiveness compromised or diminished by a long car ride home after an appointment.
