Dr. Jamie Bovay (The Movement Jedi)
Jamie is Denver’s leading Physical Therapist who helps people in Denver quickly recover from injury so they can stay active in their favorite sport/hobby, exercising, and fully enjoying life. While he originally wanted to work with professional athletes, after working with several and over time he has figured out that the everyday adult is a lot more interesting and fun to work with.
He founded KinetikChain Denver when he wanted to create a different way to provide patient care and rehabilitation. Frustrated with the models of clinics seeing 3 or more patients an hour and PT techs or aides, who have no medical experience, doing much of the care he knew there was a better way. He started KinetikChain Denver with the idea of giving extended treatment times and one on one individual treatment with pinpointed home exercise plans designed specifically for the individual and their goals in order to receive the best results. By doing this he believes he can get to know the individual better and be the provider that everybody wants and deserves instead of just the provider they get.
Jamie focuses on hands on care and blends other treatments in like manipulation, dry needling, kinesiotaping, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization, and many others to help get you back to what you want to do. Because of the personalized attention, great care, and word of mouth referrals KinetikChain Denver has evolved into the preferred provider for several gyms, teams, and clubs in the area as well as countless families and individuals. He also knows that rehabilitation doesn’t have to be all serious and it’s ok to laugh and have fun. Our thought is that smiles and laughter should be part of every interaction.
As far as Degrees go he has those as well. Jamie Graduated from Missouri State University with a BS in Chemistry for undergrad and later graduated from Rockhurst University with a doctorate in physical therapy.
Additional certifications include:
Manual therapy certification (MTC) from the University of St. Augustine
Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS)
Crystal Turner (The Client Experience Chauffeur)
Why Do You Work Here?
“Working here is like a breath of fresh air in the polluted medical/insurance world. Growing up I was always in and out of hospitals and doctors’ offices. My mother was sickly and no one knew what was wrong for a long time. My mother was eventually diagnosed with a very rare lung disease. This is where I got an insider’s glimpse into the world of our current medical system and insurance. Our insurance dominated what my mother was and wasn’t allowed for treatment. We couldn’t get the care that she desperately needed because we didn’t have the “right” insurance (whatever that means) and because of her condition no other insurance company would cover her. This forced her to take experimental drugs and she was treated like a lab rat. We eventually lost her, but this gave me insight as to who really controls the medical field. Don’t get me wrong, we did come across some really great doctors who truly cared about their patients, but their hands were tied when it came to actual treatment. I believe that healthcare should be held to a higher standard and should treat people like individuals (not just another number), and shouldn’t be held back by what insurance coverage they have (if any). This is why I work at KinetikChain Denver. I enjoy being part of a team that shares the same core values that I do. We believe that physical therapy is a natural/non-invasive way to help people get out of pain, reach physical goals, and stay away from unnecessary surgeries and medication. Above all, we do not let anyone (insurance companies, hospitals, some guy sitting at a desk 1,000 miles away, etc.) dictate how we treat our patients. We are passionate about giving each individual the care that they need, and I am privileged to be a part of this great team!!”
Crystal Turner is the first friendly voice you hear when you call and the first face you see when you walk into our clinic. She is the first person who helps to guide guide you through our process in order to achieve the quickest recovery possible so you can stay active and live the life you deserve.
Crystal has a thick background helping people make difficult decisions. While getting her degree in Business Management and Hospitality and Tourism in Charleston SC she always knew she had to find a career where she could use her outgoing personality and internal desire to help people. Crystal started in the restaurant industry where she moved up the ladder very quickly and while this satisfied her desire to make people happy temporarily, it wasn’t the perfect long-term career for her. When she decided to move in a different direction she knew that she still had that urge to help people, but wasn’t sure how she could use her skills to do that… Until she found the KinetikChain Denver.
Now, Crystal is our top client experience chauffeur. She uses her skills to listen to your needs and make your journey to a better, healthy, pain-free life as simple and easy as possible. She works hand in hand with our physical therapists to ensure our patients have the best care and plan in place to ensure a speedy recovery. Crystal is passionate about making visits that fit into our clients busy schedules and to make the overall experience as wonderful as possible. In her spare time, she loves spending time with family and friends, yoga, hiking, traveling, and exploring CO. She loves to see people smile, and that is her goal with every visit. — However–old habits die hard– she still loves serving people, so she will still offer to make you a cup of coffee or tea when you come into our facility. She can’t help herself!
