Jaime Werenka PT

(Currently on Maternity Leave)

Growing up I knew I always wanted to work in healthcare. I considered becoming a physician or nurse but didn’t feel like either were quite the right fit. I grew up in a small town and was highly active - playing hockey, volleyball, basketball, etc. and I love working with people and with my hands so physiotherapy was a natural fit.

I have worked in private practice treating general orthopedic injuries since graduating from my Master’s in Physical Therapy. It wasn’t until my first pregnancy that I became passionate about Pelvic Health Physiotherapy. I immersed myself in birth stories, educational podcasts and of course sought additional training in Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation. I love being in a position where I can empower women before, during and after their pregnancies. As a Pelvic Health Physiotherapist I want to help you to have a positive perinatal experience through education, guidance with exercise and any pain management techniques that may be appropriate.

My credentials include;

  • Bachelor’s of Science from the University of Saskatchewan
  • Master’s of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of Alberta
  • Advanced training in Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation
  • Biomedical Dry Needling Certification
  • Level 3 Manual Therapist with the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapists

Thankful that I was referred to Meghan Murphy at Healthy Families by my chiropractor who suspected that some of my long-standing injuries could stem from pregnancy/delivery 14 years ago. My hip pain was completely gone after one session, and my knee pain has significantly diminished! Meghan is amazing.
