As a Physiotherapist, Osteopath (OMT) and owner of Personal Care Physio since 1998, Jennifer Williamson’s primary goal is to optimize patient care through a dynamic integrative team approach while continuing to advance in evidenced based education as a practitioner and wellness clinic. She believes in treating the cause not the symptom.
Jennifer graduated in 1995 with a Bachelor of Science degree in physiotherapy and, in 1999, finished a Masters degree in Science, specializing in neurology. Her Masters degree focused on gait (walking) analysis and neurological conditions (e.g., stroke, etc.). She is Board Certified in Integrative Medicine Pediatrics with additional advanced Pediatric and Women’s Health Manual Osteopathic and Physiotherapy training.
Jennifer has specialized physiotherapy training for many pelvic health conditions. She has advanced training to support women during pre-natal care, labour, delivery and post-natal care which can be done via Telehealth.
Specifically, as a Physiotherapist she has completed: Pelvic Health Solutions (PHS) Pregnancy and Pelvic Girdle Pain course; Prenatal, Labour and Delivery: Maternal support through comfort measures and Pelvic Biomechanics course. These courses taught internal and external manual therapy techniques to help prepare for labour and delivery, and to help restore the pelvic floor after childbirth. They also educated on evidence based exercise, labour positioning, and modalities for C-section scars.
Jennifer has been previously educated on evidence-based physiotherapy assessment and treatment for: nociceptive and nocioplastic pregnancy related pelvic-girdle pain; diastasis recti; pelvic floor dysfunctions; urinary and fecal incontinence; sexual pain/dysfunction; prolapse; supporting emotional and physical pelvic floor trauma; lifestyle/health promotion and more. She has extensive training with Pelvic Health Solutions (PHS) in restoring pelvic health through physiotherapy.
Since completing her Physiotherapy and Osteopathic Manual Therapy degree, Jennifer has completed extensive course work in: manual physiotherapy; manual osteopathy (OMT); cranial sacral therapy; visceral manipulation; lymphatic drainage (certified lymphedema therapist); myofascial release; acupuncture that includes body/anatomical, ear/auricular, and courses to use the five element theory taught in TCM; heart centered therapy; and somato emotional release. Her extensive background gives her the ability to treat the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels of all her patients.
She has completed the Canadian Osteopathic Manual Therapy (OMT) program (CEO), enabling her to work and implement a manual osteopathic therapy methodology and manual skills into her practice. She has demonstrated statistical significance in reducing the severity of autism in a research project with children who are on the autistic spectrum under the advisory of her mentor and friend Dr. Shawn K. Centers D.O., at The Children’s HOPE Center in San Diego, and Andrea Mounce-Halasz DOMP (OMT).
Jennifer specializes in a wide variety of traumas and, because she addresses the physical, emotional and spiritual levels, she is able to meet the needs of the entire being with a Whole Practitioner view.
She loves to treat all ages from the elderly to infants. Some of her special interests are: women’s health, such as pelvic floor dysfunction, diastasis retci, endometriosis, incontinence, pregnancy and infertility; children who are on the autistic spectrum; children who are hyperactive (ADHD/ADD); lymphedema; issues with the digestive track; concussions; whiplash; migraines; TMJ pain; MVA traumas, spinal alignment and posture, PTSD; gait analysis; sport injuries; and arthritis.
