A passion for personalized, integrative patient care has molded Dr. Jill O'Brien's approach to physical therapy since beginning her career in 2003.

O'Brien Physical Therapy and Wellness

Multisystem Approach to Treatment

Dr. Jill O’Brien's focus of assessing and treating the body as a whole has guided and complimented her extensive experience and training in her specialties, which are pelvic healthchronic pain treatment and functional dry needling. She and the team at O'Brien Physical Therapy and Wellness believe that nothing in our body happens in isolation and that the secret to long term gains and improvements is taking a step back and looking at how our systems, our daily activities and our converging histories interact and are contributing to our current concerns.


Jill has always had a vision of offering a more personalized approach to health care to her patients.  She works closely with other members of your health care and wellness team in order to offer an integrative approach to your care - it takes a village!

She has worked with babies, toddlers, school-age athletes, and individuals with pelvic health, gross motor delays and neuromuscular disorders.
