Jinny McGivern, PT, DPT, CFMT Physical Therapist, is thrilled to join the team at Kinected! Since receiving her Doctorate in Physical Therapy degree from Hunter College in 2014, Jinny has dedicated herself to extensive study in the area of Functional Manual Therapy® and recently completed a two-year orthopedic residency program in Functional Manual Therapy® through the Institute of Physical Art (IPA). In August 2016, she achieved the level of Certified Functional Manual Therapist (CFMT) through the IPA becoming one of only 300 people nationally to have reached this level of training.
As a former dancer with a B.F.A in Dance Performance, Jinny brings a lifelong interest and diverse background in movement to the practice of physical therapy. In addition to her dance background and experience, Jinny has completed a 500 Hour Yoga Certification through YogaWorks and taught classes through The Ailey Extension. Jinny also treats backstage as a physical therapist with various Broadway shows, and writes research review articles for the online education platform, The Brookbush Institute.
The Functional Manual Therapy® approach resonates strongly with Jinny because of its emphasis on treatment of the entire individual, rather than just an injured body part. Jinny’s goal as a physical therapist is to help her clients achieve their fullest function as quickly as possible, whether you’re somebody who just wants to be able to get out of bed without pain, or somebody who wants to return to high level dancing or sport.
