Please welcome Jen back to the Focus team! Her passion, skills and rapport with her patients as a student physical therapist at Focus inspired us to welcome her back for a permanent position with the company.
Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, Jennifer Truong earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree in spring 2016 from the University of California-San Francisco/San Francisco State University (UCSF/SFSU) joint program. She completed supplemental coursework in musculoskeletal anatomy, manual therapy, orthopedics, and sports medicine. She is also certified to perform myofascial decompression (also known as cup therapy). This traditional Eastern medicine tool integrates with the knowledge and application of physical therapy for improved mobility.
In her free time, Jennifer spends her time exploring the beautiful Central Oregon outdoors by hiking, skiing, and rock climbing. She has been climbing for 10 years and has developed a special interest in understanding upper extremity injuries and their rehabilitation.

Jen's patient says
I appreciate the explanations from Jen as to why we are doing given exercises. She takes a great deal of care in explaining how the exercise benefits my injury/ therapy.
I spent one hour with Jennifer and the pain was gone
I had the most amazing experience with Jennifer Truong, she is so highly recommended.
I've never been to a PT so I was a bit hesitant when my primary care doc suggested I go. I injured my shoulder and was at a point where I was taking 5 ibu's both morning and evening along with plenty of whiskey and using weed-cream and I still could not sleep due to the pain and aching. I had limited range of motion and basically couldn't do anything with that left shoulder, it hurt/ached all the time. I spent one hour with Jennifer and the pain was gone, I shit-you-not...GONE! She sent me home with exercises to do, went back a couple weeks later for a follow up and more exercises to do. Now I basically have zero effects from that injury. I'm a convert, if I ever get injured again I'm going to Jennifer sooner rather than later. Simply the BEST!Joel Timmerman
