Dr. Jari Haile graduated with academic honors from the University of Southern California, with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy. She also completed a rigorous residency program specializing in the evaluation and management of patients with orthopedic pathologies. Dr. Jari Haile’s treatment approach is the perfect blend of movement analysis, neuromuscular retraining, and skilled manual therapy to produce optimal results. Dr. Haile is able to pinpoint faulty mechanics and movement patterns that contribute to pain. She incorporates skilled manual therapy to elongate shortened tissues, stretch tightened muscles, align the spine and decrease compression on the body’s joints. She then taps into the body’s neural pathways to “retrain the brain” how to move properly and finally break the pain-producing cycle. She is also an athletic trainer and has provided game-day medical coverage at athletic events and treats professional athletes (NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, USA Track and Field).
