About the Author:
Physical therapist Scott Jensen, PT, DPT, OCS, Cert. DN, became interested in his field as a high-schooler while rehabilitating his torn MCL at the very clinic he works now – Methodist Jennie Edmundson Physical Therapy East and Sports Medicine. He strives to provide an all-encompassing level of care to his patients.
“Health care needs to not only address a person’s physical needs but also their emotional and social needs,” said Jensen, who is a board-certified orthopedic specialist and is certified in dry needling. “My approach to The Meaning of Care is to provide care to the whole person – not just their injured knee or shoulder.”
Jensen values trust above everything else in his relationship with patients.
“If I can instill a level of trust in a person coming to me for physical therapy, then I believe that person will have a better outcome,” he said.
A former collegiate soccer player, Jensen graduated from St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa, with a degree in biology. He went on to receive his Master of Physical Therapy from Elon University in Elon, North Carolina, and his Doctor of Physical Therapy from A.T. Still University in Mesa, Arizona.
Jensen says his wife, Lou – a professor in the occupational therapy department at Creighton University – inspires him to be a better person, therapist and parent. They have two daughters, a dog named Gus and a cat named Freddie.
