Jackie Saravane joins Fusion Physical Therapy as a physical therapist focusing on women’s health. Jackie graduated in 2010 and obtained her Bachelors of Science in Education with Honors from the University of Arkansas. After graduation, she accepted a commission with the United States Army to attend U.S. Army-Baylor’s Doctoral Physical Therapy program and completed the program in 2013.
Her first assignment with the US Army was at Fort Sill, located in Lawton, Oklahoma, to treat a wide a variety of orthopedic and sports injuries. During her time at Fort Sill she had the opportunity to receive training with trigger point dry needling, which she has been able to integrate this technique along with exercise to optimize the recovery time and performance of her patients. With this knowledge, experience and skill she spent two years managing a sports rehab clinic for school-aged athletes.
Soon after she graduated from the Doctoral Physical Therapy program she realized the need for physical therapy in the women’s health arena and decided to gain further knowledge by attending multiple continuing education courses to become the only pelvic floor therapist in the Lawton/Ft. Sill area. This experience led to her passion for improving the quality of life for women who are dealing with pelvic pain, bladder control problems and the many changes that occur following pregnancy and childbirth.
With her new-found passion and education, she was given the opportunity to provide education, services and support that integrated fitness with pregnancy concerns for the pregnant and postpartum soldiers on Fort Sill.
Jackie is a member of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) and the Section on Women’s Health.
She is blessed to spend her free time with her husband and their feisty daughter along with their two adorable fur babies, who actually think they are people. She also loves to bake, watch movies, play soccer and volunteer as a soccer trainer for beginner goalkeepers.
