Jennifer McCauley, PT, DPT, OCS is Southlake’s premier physical therapist specializing in Pilates-based rehabilitation. Jennifer is a Doctor of Physical Therapy, certified Pilates instructor, and Orthopedic Clinical Specialist. Jennifer helps active health conscious individuals get back to the activities they love, by taking a holistic approach to care that gets results without the use of pain medication or injections.
Jennifer has been helping people stay healthy and active since 2002 where she first began teaching Pilates. Inspired by her innate gift for helping people with movement dysfunctions, Jennifer pursued a physical therapy degree and in 2008 graduated from Mount St. Mary’s University in Los Angeles with her Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree. In 2012, Jennifer sought further specialization and became a Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS). She has completed advanced manual training in Graston technique, dry needling, and in myofascial decompression (aka cupping). She has also studied Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) for over 7 years and implements these principles into her practice daily. DNS is a manual and rehabilitative approach based on principles of developmental kinesiology. This method is used in rehabilitation and with professional athletes to improve athletic performance.
In 2014, after the birth of her first child, Jennifer became interested in pelvic floor rehabilitation. She studied pelvic floor therapy with Herman and Wallace and spent 4 years working for Kaiser Permanente’s Urology Department treating both women and men with pelvic floor disorders. Jennifer is trained to treat individuals with urinary leakage, pelvic organ prolapse, diastasis rectus, pelvic pain, dyspareunia, constipation, fecal leakage, and tailbone pain.
All of these experiences have given her a unique perspective that allow her to combine her experience of movement and her skills as a physical therapist to create and execute treatment plan with the “whole” patient in mind. Taking into account the patient’s personal goals, she aims to not only alleviate pain but to get patients past their goals and on to a stronger healthier version of themselves.
Jennifer truly cares about her patient and that is reflected throughout the care you will receive at Inspire Physical Therapy and Wellness. Jennifer is certified through Polestar Pilates and the Pilates Method Alliance. She has conducted and presented research at the PMA annual conference and the Polestar World Conference looking at the effect of a reformer-based Pilates program on stress urinary incontinence. Jennifer is a gifted teacher and healer. Her approach to care incorporates manual therapy, orthopedic therapy,Pilates-based rehab, and DNS to help eliminate pain, restore function, and enhance athletic performance. She is able to treat a variety of orthopedic, sport, and pelvic health patients. Her holistic approach to care helps her patients to not only recover from injury, but to thrive, living life to its fullest.
