Meet Our Staff
Jamie Young, MPT
Jamie is the owner of Jamie's Physical Therapy & Sports Medicine. Jamie has practiced physical therapy in Beaver County since receiving his Master's of Physical Therapy degree from Chatham College in 1996. The past ten years he has enjoyed practicing in Hopewell Township at two different facilities. Jamie has extensive experience in Orthopedic Rehabilitation and the treatment of sport injuries. He has enjoyed treating many athletes ranging from adolescents to Division I and Olympic athletes. He believes that all patients deserve hands-on therapy and comprehensive individual treatment plans. Unlike many physical therapy clinics, most treatment times for our patients exceed 90 minutes. This allows the patients the greatest opportunity to benefit from treatment and provides patients more bang for the buck when co-payments exist. Jamie choose to open this clinic in Hopewell because of his friendships and experiences shared with his former patients of this community. Jamie resides with his wife Susan and their two children - Nicole age 20, who is currently attending Arizona State University majoring in Biomedical Informatics, Logan age 18, is senior Moon Area High School, he plays football, basketball and baseball.
