We are now open and available to see patients in clinic. JumpStart therapist are also offering telehealth visits. For the safety of our staff, patients, and families we have implemented the following guidelines:

  1. Prior to coming to work each day the staff must self certify that they are fever free, have not had a fever in the past 48hrs, and have not been told to self isolate by a public health agency.
  2. All staff will be wearing the appropriate PPE including masks, and will glove for some manual based interventions.
  3. We have adjusted staff schedules to decrease the overall number of people occupying each clinic at any one time.
  4. Tables have been moved to promote social distancing of greater than six feet.
  5. We are cleaning before, during, and after patients are in the treatment area. This includes anything that may be touched by the patient. Our cleaning guidelines are based on recommendations from the CDC. Staff will be washing their hands before and after each patient treatment.
  6. Patients that are coming into the clinic must complete a screening tool to help prevent the spread of COVID19. This screening questionnaire will be sent to each patient prior to their appointment. The same questions apply to each return visit.
  7. We are asking that only patients come into the treatment area. If a caregiver must assist the patient, then the caregiver must also complete the screening tool.
  8. Any patient or caregiver coming into the clinic must be wearing a face mask from home before entering the building.
  9. Once a patient enters we are asking them to please wash their hands before they start working with the therapists.
  10. In regards to telehealth, we are using a secured platform and can easily send out the link for a telehealth visit with the therapist of your choice. Most insurances are covering this option.

Please contact us via our website or call one of the clinics should you have additional questions and to book your appointments now.

Stay safe and be well.
Dan and Jennifer Connors

Meet Our Staff


Welcome to JumpStart Physical Therapy in Norwood! You can find us on Vanderbilt Avenue located inside of an Athletic Republic training facility. From the large clean waiting room and expansive front desk to the incredible gym with field turf and our sizable PT clinic, you will surely be amazed at what our site has to offer our patients. Meet our staff here.


Stretching on the Turf

With 50 yards of field turf and the newest equipment, the possibilities are endless. We are able to accommodate each of our patient's through a comprehensive Physical Therapy program that can even include some sport specific training. Whether it's for football, soccer, running or getting you back to playing with your kids, we have the space to accommodate your needs.

Plyo Floor

Plyo Floor

Pictured here is a patient exercising on our Plyo floor; a section of the gym designated for jump and agility training. At JumpStart we believe in specificity of training and work to perfect form with all higher level activities so that our patient is at minimal risk for injury when returning back to their prior level of function.

Hockey Treadmill

Hockey Treadmill

Here is the state of the art hockey treadmill. It is made of a synthetic ice plastic that allows you to train in your skates as if you were truly on ice. The treadmill is designed to train you from the inside out-neurologically, metabolically and most important biomechanically, so that you can become a more efficient skater. The Hockey Treadmill tilts from 0- to a 32-percent grade and can operate at speeds over 16 miles per hour. We also have a Super G running treadmill that tilts up to 40% and reaches 28 miles per hour. Both pieces of equipment are hooked up to a camcorder/TV to record and playback your form with skating/running in order to allow us the full ability to assess your mechanics.

Leg Press

Leg Press

Another piece of the latest equipment is the Plyo leg press. The machine allows you to train using a squatting movement in a gravity eliminated position which is perfect for rehabilitation, especially in the early phases. The weight can be adjusted from as light as 15 lbs all the way up to 600 lbs. As our patients progress and get closer with returning to sports, the Plyo press also has the capacity to train for jumping exercises as well to ensure perfect form/mechanics.
