Physical Therapist

Jason Alan Shiflett, P.T.

Jason graduated from University at Buffalo in 2001, receiving his Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy. He has held multiple positions including outpatient orthopedic, skilled nursing, and transitional sub-acute physical therapy over his 18-year career.

Jason’s training as a manual therapist has a foundation in osteopathic principles and eastern medicine philosophies. He is trained in strain-counterstain, myofascial release, muscle energy technique, cranial, visceral, and many types of reflexive techniques that he uses regularly in his treatments.

“Our entire complex human body works as a whole, never functioning separate as isolate parts. Endlessly treating downstream symptoms only produce temporary relief of symptoms, if any at all. To truly help a patient, you must find the cause of the cause of the cause.”
