    Grant Jacobson, Physical Therapist

    PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND

    He has trained athletes. He has rehabbed injured military troops. And the Johnston native joined JPT in 2015, wanting to help all types of clients in meaningful ways—even those unfamiliar or nervous about it. “I like to change a patient’s expectations. Often, a patient will be fearful or unsure when first starting therapy. It is my goal to make them comfortable and set forth a plan that is not only effective but makes the process understandable and even enjoyable.” He’s a goal setter, not surprising from a guy who ran competitive track at Iowa State. But he also understands the joy of making progress and creating positive lifestyle changes. He still runs (numerous marathons, Dam to Dam, etc.) and coaches cross-country and track at Johnston High School. But what he also loves? Working side-by-side with clients to help them make their own strides.
