Brockton Physical Therapy | Jessica Pineda | Physical Therapist Assistant

Jessica Pineda, PTA

Jessica was originally drawn to physical therapy by her interest in the human body, specifically how it works, what it is capable of and how it can heal when damaged. Couple that interest in the body with her desire to care for people and physical therapy has proven to be a perfect fit for her. Jessica gets very close with her patients and knows how badly they desire results, that is why her favorite moments are when a patient is able to report to her that they are pain free. At Brockton PT she gets to see a wide variety of conditions and some cases are very challenging. She enjoys those challenges because they foster an environment of collaboration with the other therapists where they can work together to get results. Jessica is often asked if she will pursue a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree but she is honestly very content with her role as a PTA.
