Our New Therapist at Back to Life!

Bay Area Physical Therapist
Jessica Manley

Have you met our new PT?  Welcome to Back to Life, Jessica!

San Francisco Physical Therapist Jessica Manley, PT, DPT has experienced injury and physical rehabilitation first hand and knows the value of movement without pain. She believes this simple aspect of life should be within reach for all individuals who seek it.Her experience with Functional Manual Therapy (FMT) is a central part of her holistic approach, addressing overall postural and strength imbalances in the body. Drawing upon compassion and commitment to living a healthy life free of pain, she encourages patients to heal the body beyond its condition prior to injury.

Her passion is in treating pelvic health issues including chronic pelvic pain, incontinence, pain with sex, post partum/perinatal pain, and associated hip and/or low back pain. In addition, she has a talent in working with foot issues, including plantar fasciitis and shin splints.

Jessica is thrilled to be working at Back to Life and returning to San Francisco after spending time in the Midwest. When not in the clinic, Jessica enjoys cycling adventures, baking endeavors, and exploring new and challenging yoga postures.

“I’ve been to chiropractors, acupuncturists, yogis, shaman, pain specialists, and other physical therapists in the past, but this was an entirely different experience for me. Dr Manley found the cause of my back pain, taught me how to manage it, protect my back and get back to a healthy state after years of messing it up. Instead of a printout of exercises and a pat on the back like others have given me, she made sure I had everything I need to heal.

She is encouraging, smart, intuitive, understanding, insightful and a good human being. You can tell she loves what she does.”
