Some know her as Hollywood’s Military Tech & Weapons Officer Expert. To others, she is a military vet–a Gunner’s Mate and Rescue Swimmer. Others might recognize her from the motocross track or the shooting range. When she’s not competing, you can find her collaborating with movie stars for their big fight scenes on the silver screen. Carrizosa has worked with Rihanna, Taylor Kitsch, Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgard, Brooklyn Decker, Gregory D. Gadson, Tadanobu Asano, John Tui, Jesse Plemons and Michelle Rodriguez, to name a few. She also loves RockTape. Meet our adventurous adrenaline junkie, Jacqueline Carrizosa.

Why did you get into physical therapy?
I was first exposed to PT after tearing my ACL, MCL, and meniscus following my freshman year of high school. With full intentions of playing Division 1 soccer, rehab became a huge factor. Prior to this, I had always wanted to be an orthopedic surgeon. Truth be told, I continued to have every intention of becoming an orthopedic surgeon, completing all the pre-med requirements in college and looking into the MCAT process. It was at that time that I began to have my doubts, and my advisor at the time recommended I consider physical therapy. I considered, I applied, and I started NYU’s DPT program approximately 2 weeks after graduation. The rest is history. read more…
There are many established methods of treatment for both acute and chronic soft tissue injuries. Examples of treatments methods (non inclusive) are massage, dry needling, active release technique, heat, ice, vibration, taping, exercise, including stretching, and other passive modalities like therapeutic ultrasound. Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue manipulation (IASTM) is one of those methods. IASTM or tools assist in reducing adhesions and increase healing rates of targeted tissue (Aspegren, 2007, Bayliss, 2011, Burke, 2007; Davidson, 1997, Fowler, 2000, Hammer, 2005, Howitt, 2009, Laudner, 2014, Lee, 2014, Loghmani, 2009). read more…
Why did you get into chiropractic?
I have a background as a collegiate athlete (swimming) and a personal trainer before attending chiropractic school. I always had a passion for helping people move better and feel better as a trainer, but wanted to learn more. Chiropractic saved me after a bad car accident in college, and so naturally it was the perfect fit to further my education. read more…
Would you tell us a little bit about your background? How long have you been cycling competitively?
My first local race was in 2010. I progressed pretty quickly and ended up racing Nationals in 2012. I would say that event really got me into racing competitively at a high level. I’ve been training and racing seriously ever since. read more…
Tell us about yourself.
I’m a Paralympic cyclist. I raced mountain bikes when I was younger, before having a limb-lengthening surgery go awry and left me with muscle atrophy, bone-on-bone at the ankle, low ankle flexion, low bone density, knee pain, hip pain, foot pain, scarring, and my legs are still off about an inch or so in length. read more…
