About UsStriving to Provide Houston with Compassionate, Efficient Care
At Jennifer Klein Physical Therapy we focus on providing quality care to each and every patient. Where you may experience (on occasion) sharing a treatment session with another patient. Contrary, many larger facilities have productivity standards to meet due to contracted agreements with insurance companies that are volume driven; therefore, the Physical Therapists are required to see 2-4 patients an hour in an 8-10 hour day. Typically, here at our facility you’ll have 1-on-1 sessions, this is certainly the case at the start of your care. If you share a session with another patient, it’s a sign of progress; indicating you’re gaining independence and progressing towards meeting your goals.
Hours of Operation
At Jennifer Klein Physical Therapy, we work to restore function, improve mobility, and decrease pain with the goal of reestablishing a patient’s prior level of function. As Physical Therapists, we will evaluate, identify objective findings, make an assessment, and develop a treatment plan, for each patient on an individual basis. We focus on the evaluation of strength, balance, motion, coordination, endurance, and posture of each patient. After the initial evaluation, we develop a treatment plan specific to correcting the pertinent objective findings. Each patient’s individual treatment plan is geared toward reaching specific rehab goals that are set by the Physical Therapist and the patient together. The treatment plan may involve specific exercises to stretch and strengthen muscles as well as improve posture, balance, and endurance. Physical Therapy “modalities” may also be a part of the treatment plan, including ultrasound, electrical stimulation, heat/cold, and manual therapy skills including joint/soft tissue mobilization, dry needling and cupping.

John Paul Guillen is a native Houstonian, who from an early age has had an interest in both health and art. As a child, he was a gifted artist but slowly changed focus to work towards a more steady career. John Paul wanted to turn his interests toward working with people more directly and wanted to find a career that would not only help people, but help them see the results. Around this time, he was invited to get a massage for the first time. Prior to this experience, he never imagined that massage could be so therapeutic. After being amazed by the results from just one session, he knew that he had finally found the career that he was looking for. John Paul enrolled in massage therapy school the following week, and the rest is history.
