Jane Crane, MSPT
Jane is a physical therapist and owner of Spine Mountain Physical Therapy. With over 30 years of experience in manual physical therapy, she is honored to now serve the Pine Mountain community.
After earning her Master's degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 1993, she enjoyed a variety of career opportunities. She worked in a rehabilitation hospital treating patients with injuries resulting in stroke, spinal cord injury, head injury and chronic pain, as well as in hospital-based outpatient PT clinics in both Birmingham, AL and Columbus, GA.
Jane's passion has always been helping people overcome obstacles to become the person they were created to be, and to realize their unique talents, dreams, and goals. It was this passion that led her to complete a 7-month spinal mobilization fellowship in 2006. Since then, she has specialized in treating neck, back, and extremity pain with manual techniques to restore joint mobility. Jane teaches her clients new movement patterns to reduce re-injury, address issues of decreased strength or flexibility. Each session is designed according to the individual's specific needs.
In an effort to improve function and quality of life, Jane evaluates the whole patient, taking into account how one area affects another. As a result of this approach, she has been able to move patients into functional movement and exercise with confidence. Jane is so grateful to all of her patients for trusting her to walk with them on their journey.

Meet the Founders of Spine Mountain
Larry & Jane Crane
Jane is originally from Greensboro, NC, and Larry is from Annapolis, MD. They are two college sweethearts who have been married nearly four decades. Jane’s passion as a Physical Therapist and positive impact on the lives of her patients inspired Larry’s career in health services administration, where he worked for almost 25 years supporting the delivery of primary and preventive medicine to help people stay healthy.
In 2021, the Cranes moved to Pine Mountain from Columbus, Georgia, fulfilling their dream of living in the beautiful countryside that they fell in love with when they first visited Callaway Gardens in the 1990’s. They enjoy being in the great outdoors, playing music, and spending time with family and their furry companion, Hooch.
Motivated by the love of God that overflows in love for others, Larry and Jane quickly noticed that their new community lacked accessible physical therapy and fitness facilities. To fill that gap, they founded Spine Mountain Physical Therapy and Wellness Studio, a business dedicated to helping people move better, feel better, and live better.
At Spine Mountain, we strive to improve the quality of life in our community. Our friendly and caring team is here to provide personalized care to support you in your journey to improve your health and overall well-being. So, if you are looking to take the next step towards a healthier, happier life, come join us at Spine Mountain, and let’s embark on this journey together!
I went to Jane because my back was tight and I was having trouble standing and moving without pain. A couple visits solved my back issue. I continue to stretch and follow the advice I was given. I haven't had any issues for five years now. I would recommend Jane; she is professional and truly concerned about your wellbeing.
