Dr. Jim Jenkins, PhD, PT

After earning a PhD in Exercise Physiology from The Ohio State University, research included the effects of exercise, nutrition, and selective pharmaceuticals on birth defects and exercise performance. The decision to pursue a physical therapy degree allowed a progression from research using 4-legged animals to providing clinical rehab to people of all ages.

Clinical diversity in rehabilitation services includes 25 years in roles from lead therapist, regional PT director, outpatient PT clinic owner serving patients, and establishing hospital rehab departments/programs across several Midwest states. Recently, I have enjoyed years of clinical PT service to patients across the age spectrum (pediatric, weekend athlete, to geriatric) through hospitals, home health, and outpatient clinics in Ohio counties including: Delaware, Franklin, Knox, Licking, Morrow, & Muskingham.

A career that is best described as eclectic, includes years as: a personal trainer, fitness consultant, coach of scholastic and collegiate sports, decades as an NCAA Division I sports referee in basketball and lacrosse, has been borne from partaking from the athletic-participation fountain of youth.

At home with wife and four dogs, I enjoy fitness training, gardening, cruising the country miles by road bike or motorcycle, and kayaking.
