Kelly received her undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia in 2018 and her Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree from Emory University’s School of Medicine in 2021. While at Emory, she was also trained in Advanced Extremities, Nutrition in Physical Therapy, and Dry Needling Levels 1 and 2. 

Kelly grew up in Roswell, Georgia playing competitive soccer from a young age. She had many injuries throughout her career, and after tearing her ACL, she participated in eight months of physical therapy. It is during her recovery that Kelly decided that physical therapy was the career for her. She fell in love with the impact the mind-body relationship has on a person’s quality of life and decided to pursue a career to help others heal from injury.

Kelly especially enjoys working with active, athletic populations. 

Kelly chooses to work at Activcore because she believes each patient deserves one-on-one holistic treatment that is uniquely tailored to the patient’s needs. When not at Activcore, Kelly enjoys spending time on the Beltline, playing recreational soccer, being on the lake, and spending time with friends and family.

5 Tips to Help Teenage Athletes Avoid ACL Injuries

I am passionate about helping people prevent and rehabilitate knee injuries. When I was 15 years old, I tore my anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) playing competitive soccer. This injury and the subsequent months of physical therapy inspired me to become a physical therapist.


What Can A Physical Therapist Do For Me As A Soccer Player?

In my previous post, I gave 5 tips for helping teenage athletes avoid anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries. Now I’m going to discuss specifically what a physical therapist can do for you. As a physical therapist and former competitive soccer player, one of my passions is working with teenage athletes to develop training plans to prevent the type of injury that affected my soccer career.


Suspension Exercises for a Healthy Knee

For today's blog post, I’m going to share some videos that show how we work with our athletes at Activcore. In these videos, the physical therapist uses the Redcord suspension system to create a “zero-gravity” environment where the athlete can safely exercise with good form and without pain.


My Reviews

Words cannot express my gratitude, shock and amazement.... Blake Dalton, Dr. Kelly Jones and Activcore truly changed my life in 3 months! I didn’t know anything about Redcord therapy or Activcore. I literally stumbled into a neighborly conversation on the street with Blake. A year post spinal cord injury, I'd been learning how to walk again first with a rolling walker then progressing to forearm crutches. I had inpatient rehab, outpatient PT and massage. All significantly helping my function and pain. But my recovery had plateaued. I still had significant functional limitations and pain in my back and legs. I was intrigued by their focus on the neuromuscular system... and how fascinating (and frustrating at times) when I would work so hard on making one small movement but nothing happened! The progress and improvement in the first few weeks were truly life-changing!! Three months later I am no longer using any assistive devices. I am even walking on uneven ground! I took a 3-mile walk on Christmas! The sensation in my legs and back has changed considerably and continues to do so. Whereas I had constant pain and stiffness, certain muscles are now tight and stiff to tell me they’re being worked as they come back online. Thank you Blake and Kelly!!!!

Dr. Kelly Jones is the best. Played sports through college and I still lift seriously. She gets any questions I have, then relates how to fix my back at an understandable level. She’s one of the few, if only, that helps my underlying issues, not just patching issues to come back. Couldn’t say enough positives if I tried.

Dr. Kelly Jones has been so helpful with my chronic issues! I used to get awful tension migraines which have completely gone away with dry needling and cupping. She has also helped me tremendously with TMJ, back pain, and shoulder instability. She even helped me work through some vertigo I was experiencing a few months ago. I highly recommend her!

Addison M.

Dr. Kelly Jones is a miracle worker. She has been my PT for several months for a total knee replacement and ankle injury. I can’t say enough about how quickly I saw positive results from our sessions - cupping, dry needling and strength exercises! Dr. Jones not only knows her “stuff”, she makes PT fun.

Dr. Kelly Jones is an amazing physical therapist. Within the first session alone, she helped me feel better, more aligned, and in less pain. I highly recommend partnering with Kelly to improve your physical health. She is in depth with her therapy and creates a strong bond of trust with her clients. After working with Kelly both my physical and mental health improved. Alongside her physical therapy skills, her encouragement, support, and upbeat spirit are major motivators to getting better.

Dr. Kelly Jones is truly the best of the best! She helped me rehab an old whiplash injury and I’ve never felt better. I will definitely be coming back to her for any future injuries. Thank you, Dr. Jones!
