Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy

Men, women, and children can benefit from pelvic floor physiotherapy when appropriate. It helps with bowel and bladder dysfunction, pelvic pain, organ prolapse, prenatal and postpartum issues and sexual dysfunction.

Bladder Dysfunction

Do you pee when you laugh, sneeze or cough? Do you avoid running, jumping, or playing with your kids because you leak?
When you have the urge to pee can you hold it, or do you panic and run to the bathroom because you don’t feel confident to wait?

Bowel Dysfunction

Do you experience irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, incomplete emptying?

Physiotherapy expertise you can trust.

Jenna was raised in the Northern Interlake in the small town of St. Martin. She attended high school right here in town at ACS graduating in 2005.

From a young age, Jenna knew she wanted to have a profession in healthcare. After seeing a physiotherapist for sports injuries in high school and then doing some soul searching in University, it became clear that physiotherapy was the profession she was looking for.

Jenna graduated from University of Manitoba with her Bachelor of Medical Rehabilitation in Physiotherapy in 2010. Since then she has worked in both public and private healthcare settings and has gained a lot of valuable experience from both. Jenna holds the strong belief that you should always continue to learn and therefore has taken various courses over the years.

In 2018 Jenna realized her strong passion for pelvic floor rehabilitation and since then has completed levels 1, 2 and 3 with Pelvic Health Solutions. She is particularly passionate about pre and postnatal care and considers herself a “birth junkie”. Most recently she has completed a Labour and Delivery course to further her knowledge in pre and postnatal care as well as the option to attend births for support.

Jenna deeply values the importance of truly listening to her patients and their goals and giving them the education and methods to become independent. You can often hear her saying “I am your guide”. Other favourite quotes of hers include “motion is lotion for your joints”, “your best posture is your next posture” and “all or something”.
