Jolene's love of problem-solving, taking a full-body approach to injuries and helping people optimize their health led her to grasp onto the holistic nature and amazing results of Manual Physical Therapy including Fascial counterstrain, Muscle Energy Techniques, Myofascial release, Mulligan, CranioSacral therapy, Visceral mobilization. She is also trained in Dry Needling, Laser Therapy, Customized Orthotics, and Pelvic Floor/Women's Health Therapy. She loves to educate people so that they truly understand what is happening in their body to produce their symptoms and thereby be an active participant in complete recovery. She incorporates self-management techniques, Diet, and Exercise therapy, including Pilates, to complement her manual approach as a means to restore the full function of the involved tissue. Her motto is "Total Body Balance" where all the systems of the body can function as they were originally designed to do - becoming a resilient, self-sufficient, self-healing machine!
Jolene graduating from UW-Madison in 1987, then moved to Colorado to explore the Rockies and start her career as a physical therapist. Throughout her many years as a PT, she treasures the variety of experiences that have shaped her into the PT she is today. After her first job in a hospital setting, she moved into corporate fitness where she followed employee injuries from the moment they happened to a full return to work duties. She taught Well Back schools, designed the Coors Back Conditioning Program, did FCEs, then went onto sports rehab and fitness facilities, back conditioning/ Med Ex clinics, managed a physical performance testing lab for work comp injuries and high-end athletes, did home care, worked in nursing home settings, and private practice clinics, and eventually owned her own business as a consultant to Health club in utilization management for insurance groups. All this led up to her fulfilling her dream of opening her own outpatient clinic in 2014 in Hudson, Wisconsin - Daulton Physical Therapy and Fitness. She and her husband Ron, not quite yet empty-nesters, have 7 wonderful children that they enjoy spending time with --at the family cabin, taking family trips, cook-outs at home, church activities. When she can find personal time, she likes to weight train, bike, hike, kayak, cook, read, and ....attend courses! She has continued her love of learning throughout her career with over 1000 hours and counting, of post-graduate credits in specialty coursework in physical therapy. She is honored to have had DAULTON PHYSICAL THERAPY named as the hub for Fascial Counterstrain course instruction in this area.
