Dr. Jen Morrow –
Obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology from the University of Illinois, during which time she spent a year abroad in Perth, Western Australia. It was there that she decided to return several years later to attend Chiropractic School at Murdoch University.
Dr. Morrow decided to become a Chiropractor after working for several years as a licensed massage therapist and a physical therapy aide. She wanted to be able to affect not only the soft tissues, like muscles, fascia, and tendons, but to have an immediate effect on bones and joints, as well.
As an athlete, I have always had an appreciation for how the body works. As a massage therapist, I feel that I gained an intuitive healing capacity with my hands. This has been a wonderful asset to bring to my role as a Chiropractor in delivering safe, effective, and gentle care.
Some of her involvement while in Chiropractic schoolincluded treating families in rural India, professionalsurfers in South Africa, and working as an intern to the Seattle Mariners baseball team. Upon graduation, Dr. Morrow worked in a busy family wellness practice on the Sunshine Coast of Australia before returning to the U.S.
Dr. Morrow has been treating injuries with her hands for well over a decade. She utilizes Neuromuscular Therapy, Trigger Point Therapy, motion palpation, and myofascial stretching techniques to help restore function to the tissues which tend to pull bones/joints out of alignment. Through releasing these soft tissues, adjusting the spine and extremities using both force and non-force Chiropractic techniques, and helping you work towards correcting muscle imbalances, Dr. Morrow aims to give you the tools your body needs for maintaining your healthiest alignment as long as possible. She also incorporates targeted nutritional and emotional support, when indicated, using a technique called Neuro-Emotional Technique, and has extensive additional training in adjusting infants and children.
Dr. Morrow is grateful to call Hood River home and enjoys mountain biking, SUPing, wind and kitesurfing, running, and hiking throughout the Gorge.
