Jordon Whitaker PT, DPT
Jordon completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Oregon and earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at George Fox University. She continues to have connections with her professors and classmates at George Fox, for continued discussion and growth around research and innovative approaches to physical therapy practice. Her background in research at George Fox allows her to provide additional knowledge in pre season testing for college athletes. As a result of her group research work at George Fox, she was published in the International Journal of Sports Physical Therapy (IJSPT) and the Athletic Training and Sports Health Care (ATHSC).
Jordon is comfortable working with patients of all ages and abilities as her background has been varied. She has worked in many clinical settings, hospitals and nursing facilities. She has had experience with pediatrics as well as geriatrics, but has a passion for outpatient orthopedics. She enjoys treating overuse injuries and tendinopathies. By using a combination of hands on approach and active exercise, she enjoys helping her clients achieve their fitness goals. She tends to focus on general health and wellness to ensure that clients feel well equipped to self manage any symptoms and feel confident in their abilities to participate in activities they enjoy. She also has an interest in chronic pain management and managing clients with back pain. Jordon’s continuing education post PT school has consisted of the orthopedic conference, hip and knee courses and participating in weekly online education seminars in order to stay up to date on research and clinical expertise.
When Jordon is not at Therapydia Lake Oswego, you would find her spending time with her family either travelling, hiking, working out or enjoying Portland food. She is usually planning her next travelling experience with her husband as they have driven halfway across the country multiple times and have been outside the country to Europe, Africa, Caribbean and Central America.
Margaret is a rare Portland-native who loves the rain. She will grab any opportunity that comes up to stay active, especially waking up at 5am for a Crossfit class when everyone else is sleeping. During high school, she was forced to be introduced to physical therapy and quickly fell in love with the environment. While working at Therapydia Lake Oswego, she is currently pursuing a career in law enforcement and is excited for her future.
Elaina was very knowledgable and supportive. She made sure she understood my lifestyle and specific issues and guided my workouts at an appropriate level. I feel much more confident now in assessing my limits to avoid re-injury.
I am getting better results at Therapydia than I ever have in PT previously! The improvement in my ability to move is very noticeable at the end of my appointments.
Felt like I got a good combination of better range of motion and strengthening. Felt like I got good treatment and improved after each session.
