Jamie Francis first developed a passion for helping people feel better while working as a candy striper at the age of 14. She decided to go into the field of physical therapy in order to combine this passion with her love of sports and dance. She attended Sargent College of Health Care Sciences at Boston University, earning her Physical Therapy degree in an accelerated Masters Program. During that time, she also worked internships in the Boston area specializing in veteran’s care, women’s health, and pediatrics.
Her formal career began in the Boston area, working in acute and sub-acute care with veterans at West Roxbury VA Hospital and patients with spinal cord injuries at Spaulding Hospital. She relocated to Western MA to pursue a career in a gait analysis laboratory, studying the movement and function of children with neurological and orthopedic disabilities at Shriner’s Hospital for Children. In addition to performing laboratory research, she also provided hands-on care for children and young adults ranging from newborns to age 21, specializing in manual therapy. As the founder of Francis Physical Therapy, she also provided regular care for CrossFit athletes and other adults suffering from pain and movement dysfunction.
She relocated to Denver to co-found Denver Pain and Performance Solutions. She strives to help patients of all backgrounds return to optimal health and performance. Her favorite free-time activities include dancing in the living room with her kids, lifting weights repeatedly, and watching the Patriots win Super Bowls.
