Dr. Ploss has been a physical therapist at Langford for 6 years, working with a range of outpatient orthopedic patients after graduating from UNM and receiving a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree.
She is actively working toward certification and specialization in orthopedic manual therapy, especially of the hand, elbow and shoulder. She would like to specialize in climbing and running injuries. She also loves working with the general population, who she describes as “those of us mere mortals who just want to move and live better, with less pain, and better function!”
Jenny is an avid climber, and also loves to backpack and run. You'll often see her hiking in the Sandias carrying her 2-year old daughter, and she and her husband did a 60 mile backpacking trip for their 10-year anniversary.
Her best physical therapy tip is to create an integrated program which the patient can perform for life in order to not only control and reduce pain, but more importantly prolong the ability to keep doing the things he or she loves to do best.
Her favorite quote is, “Te mamo” – from her son, learning to speak spanish
