Jacquelyn Poirier, PT, is a licensed physical therapist. Clinical interests include manual/manipulative skills for management of the spine and extremities and a special interest in the fabrication of custom orthotics. She joined OA in April 2016.

The most rewarding part of being a physical therapist is being a part of making changes in the lives of my patients. During my years of practice I have learned the skill of analyzing patients’ movements and mechanics and working with them to functionally retrain their movement patterns to decrease stress and strains that may cause injury.”
