Jason T. Franklin, D.O.
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation/Physiatry
Much of my training in medical school has focused on the spine. My schooling as an Osteopathic Physician afforded me an extensive introduction to problems of the spine early on in my education. With that foundation, I went on to complete a residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. After residency, I spent an additional year of training in the Spinal Diagnostic Department at Kaiser Permanente in Richmond, California.
Both the Osteopathic philosophy and the field of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation emphasize looking at the impact of a condition on the whole person. This holistic approach is what I try to employ with each patient I meet. I do my best to promote communication between me and my patients, so I can understand their concerns as well as their symptoms. My focus is not only to identify a patient’s problem and treat them, but to also educate them about their condition as we are discussing the different options for treatment. Most of the time back pain, neck pain, and sciatic pain can be treated conservatively and non-surgically.
Outside of work I enjoy traveling, snowboarding and spending time with my family.
