We are excited to announce that MightyMeals is the official meal prep provider of The Jackson Clinics, a locally owned physical therapy practice with multiple locations throughout Northern Virginia. We recently sat down with Director of Operations, Ben Keeton, PT, DPT, OCS, to learn more about what sets The Jackson Clinics apart from any other physical therapy clinic in the area, and how MightyMeals provides the optimal fuel to help their clients heal from the inside-out.

Tell me about The Jackson Clinics.
Ben: The Jackson Clinics is a physical therapist-owned outpatient orthopedic practice with locations throughout the Washington D.C. metro region. We were founded by Richard and Anna Jackson back in 2005 with the goal of becoming a world-leading physical therapy practice. We have grown from 3 clinics to 19 throughout Northern VA. We specialize in outpatient orthopedics and sports rehabilitation. Our therapists and assistants possess advanced clinical skills in spinal disorders, sacroiliac joint dysfunction and peripheral joint problems, including rotator cuff injuries, knee injuries and foot and ankle pain. We also have specialty programs in oncology rehabilitation, upper and lower extremity lymphedema management, vestibular rehabilitation, pediatrics, aquatic therapy, pelvic health/women’s health, LSVT BIG therapy for Parkinson’s care, running analysis, bike fitting, cross fit, industrial rehabilitation, dry needling, custom orthotics, and more.
What separates The Jackson Clinics from other physical therapy practices in the area?
Ben: The biggest thing that separates us from all other PT practices in the country is our education. We have four residency and/or fellowship programs, and over 50% of our staff members have advanced Orthopedic Clinical Specialist (OCS) certification through the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), whereas only 6% of all therapists in the United States have an OCS. We have incredibly well-trained therapists that deliver individualized, hands-on care and have expertise that does not exist at this scale anywhere else in the country. The Jackson Clinic takes all insurances, and we have direct access with no referral necessary. Because we have 19 locations, we are conveniently located to everyone!
Why is MightyMeals a great match for your clients?
Ben: MightyMeals is a perfect fit for us because we have dedicated our professional lives to helping people prevent injury, recover from injury, and improve performance in the least invasive ways possible. We’re talking about hands-on, clinical reasoning to help heal our patients. Having the right fuel to make those efforts worthwhile is critical. You wouldn’t put regular gas in a Maserati; if you want to help people heal, you need to give them the correct fuel. MightyMeals is the right fuel. We are thrilled about this partnership!
What’s your favorite MightyMeal?
Ben: I am a Buffalo lover, so the Shredded Buffalo Chicken is my go-to dish! It never disappoints.
