  • Jen DeLorenzo

    Jen DeLorenzo PT is excited to join the Six Integrative Wellness team. Jen brings the latest approach to patient care with recent advances in Pain Science. Jen has always utilized a comprehensive approach incorporating the unique and complex characteristics of each individual when creating a plan of care. The most important piece of that plan is YOU! Your “story” is essential to your care and future health. Jen has had the privilege of training with some of the best PTs in the country and the world. In addition to Pain Science, she uses Functional Manual Therapy (FMT) to maximize your outcomes. FMT is a continuum of care from initial stages to high level function. In addition, Jen offers Wellness Coaching which can be in person or over the phone. Coaching is a way to help you determine the best ways to reach your goals and sometimes that means altering a goal or even putting it on hold. Coaching topics can range from nutrition, stress, sleep, and even financial fitness.

    She is member of the American Physical Therapy Association and has her own practice since 2006. Jen is from the Buffalo area and graduated from the University of Scranton in 1991. She has been a PT for more than a ¼ of a century. Since graduating she has practiced in Pennsylvania, Maine, Indiana, and Chicago. She was a traveling physical therapist too! She has been a certified Functional Manual Therapist since 2001, a Wellness Coach since 2014. Her most recent Certification is a Therapeutic Pain Specialist in 2016. This was the first group to graduate from this program. It represents an exciting shift in the way PT can be utilized to help the 112 million people in our country who suffer from persistent pain. She is also a faculty member for the International Spine and Pain Institute and teaches Pain Science to physical therapists.

    In addition to PT, three kids keep Jen very busy. Her family loves laughter, music, karate, and triathlon.
