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.
