Part 2 of our interview with Dr. Jenny Ploss, PT who works with a range of orthopedic clients at Langford Sports & Physical Therapy in Albuquerque. She graduated in 2012 from the University of New Mexico with a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree after studying biology and playing collegiate soccer at the University of California at Davis.
Jenny believes her job as a physical therapist extends beyond helping clients overcome pain and disability. She believes the ultimate goal of any fitness or healthcare professional should be to help each client find an enjoyable way to keep moving well as long as possible in order to maintain a higher quality of life, greater independence, and the ability to explore and enjoy life.
Jenny is an avid rock climber, and also loves to backpack, run, and bike. In 2016, Jenny was introduced to MovNat through a colleague, and has adopted these natural movement patterns as a way to maintain her fitness and movement skills so that she is better prepared for higher level skills and competitions. She loves using these movements with her clients, and truly believes that natural movement is a more sustainable way of keeping your body healthy and reducing risk of injury.
