Kristin Ross, Physical Therapist
Kristin gives her patients hope that her services will heal their injuries and provide better quality of life. Kristin’s expertise helps people manage short- and long-term conditions while supplying them with the tools to prevent future issues. Seeing her patients regain function and mobility, while meeting any other healthcare goals makes her position so incredibly rewarding! Deeply invested in each patient’s recovery, Kristin uses her driven and compassionate personality to guide her patients on the pathway to recovery. Mint chocolate chip may be her go-to ice cream flavor, but her warmth and compassion shines through in every single session. Like her favorite Ed Sheeran song, Kristin’s holistic, detail-oriented, and caring disposition is a “Perfect” fit for the values expected from a provider at ICPR.

Micki Jackson, PTA
Physical Therapy Assistant
Stop, listen and learn…. that is Micki’s philosophy whenever she meets a new patient because who knows how their bodies are feeling better than them? This approach has proven effective time and again as Micki helps patients realize what they are doing and what they are capable of doing are two different things… especially with a little practice and lots of hard work. Micki also adheres to this philosophy in life, knowing that taking the time to listen to other people’s experiences can also enrich your own.

Sharon Risinger, PTA
Physical Therapy Assistant
Patient-minded…. pain-relief focused. That pretty much sums up everything Sharon does at ICPR. Going out of her way to make sure patients feel comfortable and well informed, she does whatever she can to help make them feel better and have more mobility than when they arrived. We like to say it’s the “mom” in her coming out as this mother of two listens to patients describe their pain and works with them to help relieve it. At the end of the day, you’ll leave knowing she cares about you and your success in reaching your goals.
