Jessica Porter was born and raised in Michigan. She majored in Exercise Science with a minor in Health Care Administration at Saginaw Valley State University and received her Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree from Central Michigan University.
Her interest in pelvic health began in physical therapy school while Jessica was experiencing her own pain during her first pregnancy. An adjunct professor specializing in Women's Health took notice and not only resolved her pregnancy pain but opened her eyes to the pelvic health specialty. While still in physical therapy school, Jessica was able to spend a 15-week long clinical practicing alongside a pelvic health physical therapist gaining an abundance of knowledge and experience. Since graduation Jessica has continued her education in pelvic health through the Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute.
She has completed 100+ hours of continuing education focused on pelvic floor dysfunction and continues to seek more education within this field. She has obtained her lymphedema certification to bring another skill-set in helping to treat pelvic health clientele. She is passionate about working with the pediatric, lymphedema, and oncology populations.
She treats a variety of issues in both men, women, and children including urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, constipation, pelvic pain, hip pain, low back pain and pelvic organ prolapse, pregnancy, post partum, and oncology. She truly enjoys her job and helping give people back their lives.
Outside of the clinic she enjoys spending time with her 3 children and husband and being active with running and a chauffeur to all her children's activities.
