Jen Tester

Physical Therapist Assistant (Shawnee)

I grew up on a farm with my parents, older sister and younger brother. I graduated high school from Spencerville and then received my Associate’s degree in Physical Therapy Assisting from Rhodes State College. I am married to my husband of almost 15 years and have a daughter, Olivia, and a son, Camden. My husband and I enjoy watching our kids show their pigs at the county fair and participate in sports and band.

I have 19 years of experience as a Physical Therapist Assistant and have worked in outpatient primarily as well as acute care, nursing homes, home health and aquatics.

Hard work, faith, passion, and honesty.

Let your faith be bigger than your fears.

I am certified in LSVT BIG and have training in muscle energy techniques for the lumbosacral and pelvic regions.

Treatments that I enjoy treating are really, all types especially low back pain and sports-related injuries.

Something that I see patients struggle with that I want to help is their pain and lack of function.

What I love the most about working at Back on Track is the fun atmosphere, availability of equipment, and our wonderful patients.

Patient Testimonials

Jennifer was my PTA a few times over these past 5 years. She was professional, friendly and persistent that I work hard to feel the best I can. Astym was a great therapy for me and Jennifer was one of the few employees that were certified. I was lucky to have her as a PTA. She is a natural leader and someone you want on your team! – Patti Stahl

About 5 years ago I had two total knee replacement surgeries approximately a month apart. I was fortunate enough to have Jennifer assigned to me as my PTA. I found her to be a very kind, caring and knowledgeable person that helped me immensely in recovering full use and flexibility of my knees. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of physical therapy. If I ever have need for physical therapy in the future I’m certainly going to return to Jennifer. I can never thank her enough for helping me with my recovery! – Randy Bennett

I came to therapy after a repair of a complete hamstring rupture. I was in therapy for 12 weeks and I have so much gratitude for my team of clinicians. My rehabilitation was excellent and I can’t say enough good things about this wonderful team. I wouldn’t be back to my very active lifestyle without them!
