BILL ESSER FROM JACKSON COUNTY PT PICKED AS FAVORITE PHYSICAL THERAPIST

Sneak Preview Magazine
July 10, 2012
Any time you have to recover from an injury or surgery, your faithful physical therapist is there to help. From stretching exercises to specific routines that work various muscle groups, they’re trained to get you back on your feet in no time.
And when it comes to getting back on the road to recovery, our readers most often mentioned Bill Esser, MS, PT, CCTT of Jackson County Physical Therapy. Bill has been in practice since 1981. His interests in are in temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders and headaches, early intervention and treatment of skeletal and soft tissue injuries due to motor vehicle accidents, and mechanical dysfunction of the spine and extremity joints. He’s also an accomplished musician with expertise in guitar, banjo, bass guitar, and mandolin. Bill would be a good guy to have in the band…especially after a month of sleeping in a cramped tour bus.
