Pete Larson thinks physical therapy is both a science and an art that includes knowing the latest research, but also understanding the unique characteristics, motivations and goals that each person possesses. Through a combination of manual therapy, exercise, goal setting, and coaching, my goal is to help people get out of pain and get back to doing the things they love in life.

Jennie Beth Kruger MS, ATC


I have participated in athletics throughout my life and have been an injured athlete myself. Interacting with athletic trainers as a high school athlete drew me to the profession of athletic training. Throughout my career, I have enjoyed working with active people and taking them from the initial injury all the way through to return to sport. In my current role I am lucky that I can see patients through their recoveries and return to the activities that they love and play a crucial role in educating the patient on their injury, setting expectations, and reaching goals.
