Dr. Jessica Kelner is musculoskeletal specialist with special interests in Dextrose Prolotherapy, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine, Sports Medicine and Functional Medicine.
As a South Florida native, Dr. Kelner attended the University of Florida for both her Bachelor of Science and her Master of Science degree. She graduated summa cum laude with her B.S. in Animal Biology and then earned her M.S in Exercise Physiology. It was this intense learning about exercise science that spurred her passions to learn even more about biomechanical movement and optimal cellular function of the body. She earned her Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree from Nova Southeastern University College of Osteopathic Medicine. During medical school, Dr. Kelner gravitated toward Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) as she realized that OMT was able to help heal the body naturally without drugs or surgery. Dr. Kelner completed her Family Medicine and OMT training at Westchester General Hospital in Miami, Florida, during which she was appointed the clinic chief resident. She then completed her Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine +1 Fellowship training at Florida Hospital East Orlando in Orlando, FL.
Dr. Kelner is Dual Board Certified in Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine as well as Family Medicine and Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment, with specialty training in Cranial Osteopathy, Functional Medicine, Prolotherapy and Platelet Rich Plasma.
