I could not be happier with the sessions I have had with Dr Jackson over the past two months. I am grateful and so impressed with his knowledge, skill, and warmth. When we started my goals were modest: to break out of a pain and muscle spasm cycle that was limiting my ability to work and sleep and think clearly. What I have received has been a personalized clinic in my own biomechanics, concrete exercises for improving function, and I am genuinely improving every week. Working with Jamal has restored an optimism and self-confidence that the pain had been robbing from me for a while. Because these have been home sessions, my family has been able to cheer me on and we are all Team Jamal now because of the way he teaches, coaches, and encourages me. I am now setting higher goal for activity and look forward to working with Jamal as I progress!Laura, May 06
Jamal is a happy surprise ! He was assigned to me when my regular pt instructor was traveling and he is great. Patient, thorough, flexible , culturally sensitive . Highest recommendation.Michel, Jun 17
From the first session Jamal was patience and understanding. I was still suffering side effects of chemotherapy. Jamal worked with me in a manner that took into account my weaken state. He encouraged me, without pushing me past my limits. He listens and incorporates changes in your workout where it is needed and still makes sure to challenge you. I cannot recommend him highly enough! Thank you Jamal for helping me to restore my strength.Leslie, Aug 19
