Jackie Saravane - Women's Health Specialist
I grew up in the college town of Fayetteville, Arkansas. After graduating from Fayetteville High School in 2006, I went on to play soccer for the University of Arkansas. I graduated with Honors and a Bachelors of Science in Education in 2010. After graduation, I 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.
My first assignment brought me here to Fort Sill to treat a wide variety of orthopedic and sports injuries. I had the opportunity to gain additional training with trigger point dry needling and integrate this with exercise to optimize recovery and performance. This led into spending two years running a sports rehab clinic for school-aged athletes.
During my first year after graduation, I discovered a need for women’s health physical therapy services in this area and was able to attend multiple continuing education courses to become the only pelvic floor therapist in the Lawton/Ft. Sill area. I now have a passion for improving the quality of life for women dealing with pelvic pain, bladder control problems and the many changes that occur following pregnancy and childbirth. I provided education and services for the pregnant and postpartum soldiers on Fort Sill and was able to provide support to integrate fitness with pregnancy concerns. I am a member of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) and the Section on Women’s Health.
I am blessed to spend my free time with my husband, Bobby, and our feisty daughter, Charli. We have two adorable furbabies, Chester and Delta, who think they are people too. In my free time, I love to bake and watch movies. I still love soccer and volunteer to train beginner goalkeepers on local teams.
