Hometown: Mountain Home, ID
Degrees: Doctor of Physical Therapy (Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions) and Bachelors of Health Sciences & Biology (College of Idaho)
Why Physical Therapy?: Steve has always been fascinated by the human body and movement. From a very young age, he knew he wanted to be in the medical field. Steve’s tipping point with selecting physical therapy as a profession was after his own rehabilitation experience, following a basketball injury that resulted in an ACL reconstruction. His personal experience with physical therapy was his catalyst for a passion in helping others improve their life experiences through optimizing movement quality and reducing their pain. Steve is a Perfomance Enhancement Specialist (PES) through NASM; he has a strong background in fitness and performance training, helping transition athletes and weekend-warriors back into activities they may be having difficulty performing. Steve services physical therapy in Boise.

Dr. Jordan Henretty, PT, DPT
Hometown: Peachtree City, Georgia
Degrees: Doctorate of Physical Therapy (Wheeling Jesuit University) and Bachelor of Science in Biopsychology (University of California, Santa Barbara)
Why Physical Therapy?: Being active has always been important to Jordan. She grew up participating in sports and activities, such as tennis, basketball and competitive cheerleading/tumbling. Her interest in physical therapy arose after she underwent surgery for scoliosis. It was a turning point where she began to realize the importance of movement, not only for being active, but also for improving one’s psychological well-being. She became intrigued with the human body and how physical therapy can help people, who are limited in their daily activities by pain/injuries, achieve their full potential.
Specialties: Spine and Orthopedics in Physical Therapy
Hobbies: On the weekend, you may find Jordan hiking, running, playing tennis, target shooting or swimming at the lake. She also loves to spend time with her family, travel, paint, watch movies/TV, and go to the gym.

Being able to help someone overcome injuries and/or pain creates a joy that she did not know was possible. Just the way the human body works, how it is capable to heal itself amazes her to the point that she wants to keep learning about it. Also playing sports in high school helped Amy want to stay within the athletic realm which lead to her career choice. Amy was very fortunate to know exactly what she wanted to do and what exactly she wanted to get her degree in once she graduated high school.
