Physical therapist Jacqueline Barr has opened the Sports Cranio/Sacral Center of North Carolina at 424 E. Bank St. to treat injured athletes.

Barr has 35 years of experience dealing with sports injuries. She has a master’s degree in physical therapy from Boston University.

Barr says she enjoys working with all ages but particularly likes working with athletes. She trains athletes in how to manage their injuries and about the consequences of untreated or improperly managed injuries.

Barr will offer a 20-minute “discovery” visit for questions about treatment and a physical diagnosis. She offers reports on the five tests for functional movement and four things to help recovery from a concussion, also for free. To get the reports, call 704-640-0202 or email jacquelinebarrmspt@gmail.com.
