Meet Dr. Craig-Jones
Dr. Mark Craig-Jones, PT, DPT received his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences in 2011, graduating with high honors. While attending graduate school, he completed advanced coursework in manual therapy techniques and assessment of musculoskeletal conditions. Dr. Craig-Jones has a strong background in exercise prescription and sports performance. He completed his undergraduate degree in kinesiology with an emphasis in exercise science in 2008.
Dr. Craig-Jones began his career as a physical therapist working in an inpatient rehab facility with primarily geriatric patients and treating conditions ranging from post-op total knee replacements to strokes and pulmonary disorders. However, after 1 year in this setting and with his advanced training in musculoskeletal conditions, found that his passion was in orthopedic rehabilitation. Therefore, he worked for the next two years in a private outpatient orthopedic clinic to gain vital experience and refine his manual therapy skills. While working in this field, he also had the opportunity to work as a Home Health therapist treating individuals in their own environment. He continued to work in this setting for 2 years before embarking on his goal of establishing, owning, and operating Pipeline Physical Therapy with fellow PT Dr. Chris Flynn.
Dr. Craig-Jones was born and raised in the United Kingdom before moving to California in 2000. He grew up with a very active lifestyle, playing soccer competitively through youth and college levels, and is an avid surfer and rock climber. He has an interest in all sports and uses this experience to create specific rehab programs for all his patients no matter what their desired activity.
