Bio

Jessie Podolak received her Master’s Degree in Physical Therapy from the College of St. Catherine, Minneapolis, in 1998. She completed her transitional Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Regis University, Denver, in 2011. She has been teaching pain neuroscience education and manual therapy techniques at continuing education courses since 2013 and now serves as the Program Director for Evidence In Motion’s Pain Science Fellowship.  The Fellowship is the first of its kind in the United States, providing a multi-disciplinary, post-graduate, advanced certification for health care providers who see patients with complex, chronic pain. She has participated in and lead research exploring the attitudes, beliefs and behaviors of middle school students related to pain and healthy options to address pain when it inevitably occurs.

Jessie owns and operates her community’s first direct-pay physical therapy practice, seeing a variety of patients with acute and chronic pain conditions. She has special interests in complex and chronic pain, manual therapy, Pilates, spine and running injuries. She is a certified clinical instructor through the APTA and has completed her Therapeutic Pain Specialist certification and Pain Science Fellowship through Evidence in Motion.
