Dr. Scott provides integrative movement performance coaching by looking far deeper than your obvious symptoms or painful structure.

    Some of his therapeutic treatments include:

  • Growing up in the cornfields of Nebraska I always needed to be active.  After high school I enlisted in the Air Force, and while stationed in Europe I worked my way onto a professional soccer team.

    After enlisted service I went on to play D1 collegiate soccer, then made the decision to enter one of the first doctoral physical therapy programs in the nation at Creighton University.  With 15 years of competitive athletics already behind me, this was an easy next step. 

    Upon graduation I rejoined the Air Force as an officer and doctor of physical therapy, and became fascinated with helping service-members overcome the fatigue and frustration of warfighter training, military deployment, and a highly stressful, relentlessly demanding, and unpredictable lifestyle.

    After a few years of practice, using the best information and techniques available at the time, my experience and clinical reasoning finally caught up with the state of physical rehabilitation.  I came to the realization physical therapy, while highly technical and evidence based, was not providing long term solutions for people who needed them.   

    While I believe in and truly enjoy PT as a profession, the need for an integrative path going well beyond a minimum standard of care is long overdue. 

    Your evaluation and prescription must be just as unique and specialized as your movement, and pain barriers.

    Now I use that philosophy and integration of experience as a Movement Performance Coach helping others integrate body-mind-spirit, accelerate recovery, and restore energy.

    I went well beyond the standard tests and measures of the physical therapy profession and began to explore movement holistically.  I wanted to develop awareness of uncompromised movement, ways of assessing the effects of previous injury, stress, anxiety, and breath on healthy movement, and to explore systems of evaluation that incorporate the body as a whole.

    Consider Aristotle, who wrote, “The whole is greater than the sum of the parts”, but really, when was the last time you were evaluated and received a plan of care with the whole person in mind? At Peak Health and Performance we will never take a one-size-fits-all approach, and you will experience that difference from the first visit.  The whole person is evaluated, and the whole person is integrated as we move toward restoration.

    During my time as a PT professor the question we posed to our students and the place you and I must start from is “how did we get here”? What is the root cause of your pain/fatigue/stiffness?  And, if we take the time to listen to Aristotle, we first consider that movement is a behavior.  In other words — a habit. The body doesn’t always perform in the healthiest way; instead, the body likes to take shortcuts to save time and energy.  In other words, the body does what is easy. If we return to the compensation often enough, if we create corner-cutting habits, eventually healthy movements are compromised in favor of easy ones.  It’s this daily corner-cutting, over time, that produces the compensations and dysfunctional habits that result in pain, fatigue, and frustration.

    As a result, when life eventually challenges us with activities that demand increased effort and performance, we find these new habits have robbed us of higher levels of ability.

    We find we have lost our core stability and balance, have to work harder to enjoy activity, and can’t seem to shake nagging injuries. Our corner-cutting strategies, helpful in the short term, have become habits that have eroded our athleticism and our ability to live, move, and function to our potential. 

    The frustrating truth is that it doesn’t have to be that way. Real answers to your pain and fatigue questions exist. You can get off the merry-go-round and find freedom.

Dr Scott is a blessing. A rare doctor that truly cares and listens. You're never a number with Scott, his passion for... helping you get better is evident the moment you meet him. I found Dr Scott by pure luck, a late night google search after my primary care sent me to a physical therapy group that was only running me through the motions. I'm not an elite athlete but I'm not 80 and on my way out either.If you want to meet a physical therapist that cares and creates a plan unique to your situation give hm a call, you will not be disappointed.read more

Dr Jones was a fantastic physical therapist. His expertise and experience with "cause and effect" diagnosis helped me... within minutes of limping in for my first appointment. Back pain was eased before I left that day. He demonstrated, explained, and educated me regarding the probably issues causing my back pain--even sent some helpful video links. It's been two months since the first referral, and I can say that I am not only pain free (without any pills!) but also improving on a number of other physical performance factors needing attention. Having been to more than a dozen physical therapists since I've been in Colorado Springs (amost 20 years now), Dr. Scott Jones was by far the most effective. Highly recommended to military folk looking for some genuine expertise and results from a physical therapist.read more

My experience with Dr. Scott has been the best. He's a very gifted physical therapist who really understands the human... anatomy. He's really good at finding the cause of an injury and getting straight to the root of it with therapy and exercises. I have been very impressed by his work and the outcomes with my injuries. Just in one session I would already feel better! He's brilliant and I'm very thankful to have him as my PT!read more

I’ve been lifting weights for years but between a physically demanding job and an inability to perform full range of... motion without pain on some exercises I decided to see Dr. Scott. I'm feeling a lot better. I'm much more relaxed. A lot less lower back pain. I can stand up for longer periods of time without pain. Lifting in general is better. I have better balance and strength. All of this has culminated in me feeling better at work, at home, and at the gym. Thank you!read more

Dr Jones is amazing, competent beyond belief and patient. My husband is elderly, and Dr Jones worked with him until he... was stronger than he had been in years. He had gone to several physical therapists in the past and none were able to heal long standing injuries. Dr Jones’s exercises were gentle & effective enough that he is able to move and walk again as he had years ago. If you have an injury that needs healing and strengthening, Dr Jones is your guy- he is absolutely top tier!read more

Dr. Scott Jones desires to see his patients’ overall health improve. He helps one move forward with a better quality... life. His techniques and practice are much more than the typical ice, heat, see me every week approach. As long as one is willing to do their “homework” of exercises developed specifically for them, improvement will be seen. I know this first hand! His yoga class (presently offered online) helps one develop a breathing practice and focuses on stretching, strengthening, and developing a practice of mindfulness.read more

I have benefitted greatly from Dr. Scott’s holistic approach. After only a few in-line yoga sessions, I have learned to... become more centered and aware of my breathing which has already helped to decrease me stress levels throughout the day. Dr. Scott’s calm and kind demeanor create a welcoming atmosphere and he is always happy to answer questions.read more

If you are interested in improving your physical mobility and increase your performance in life, schedule your... appointment. Although we're several states away from each other, Dr. Jones was able to identify the issues causing my stiffness. After following his suggestions for a week, I'm already noticing a difference and can't wait to see what long term application will do for me. Well worth the investment for this online performance coaching!!read more

Working with my son's concussion where we were floundering in finding the right care for him. A friend referred Dr.... Scott to us and it has been amazing the recovery process and attention that he gives to my son. With an athlete child, it is so great to have someone that knows what to do and makes the extra effort to create a great working environment to the healing of body and mind injuries.read more

I highly recommend Dr. Jones! Not only is he experienced and knowledgeable, but he is also kind and thoughtful. He... explains what he is doing and why, and he gives you the tools you need to heal yourself, focusing on the cause of the problem, not the symptoms. The sessions are productive and inspiring--no unnecessary paid visits. Get your pain-free life back...you are in good hands with Dr. Jones.read more

Dr. Scott Jones is excellent. As a former Ballet Dancer having had two knee surgeries, I have received therapy by... countless PT providers in the last 16 years, and have never experienced one with the unique approach Dr. Scott uses. He projects an atmosphere of genuine concern and detailed care for each individuals physical needs. In helping me with knee complaints he shed light on and revealed other significant overlooked issues leading directly to my original pain. Every time I go I come away feeling alert, energetic, and amazing!!! Thank you Dr. Scott!read more
