Jenna Mielke

PT, DPT, Clinic Director

Jenna dreamt of being a physical therapist long ago after being a patient herself and suffering two knee injuries requiring extensive rehabilitation. She completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point where she was on the women's basketball team. Jenna values her personal experiences as an athlete and the ability to relate to the mental aspect of injury and recovery.

Jenna completed her Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) at South College in Knoxville, Tennessee. She has pursued additional training to become pelvic health certified with the American Physical Therapy Association Section on Women’s Health. This valuable specialty is unique within the Body Mechanics staff. Females suffering from varying degrees of incontinence, pelvic pain, and coccygeal (tailbone) pain can benefit from this type of physical therapy. Problems may be related to child labor and delivery and post-surgical complications. Through careful diagnosis, manual therapy, education, and guided exercise progression, Jenna can help resolve many of these issues. Jenna also enjoys treating general orthopedic conditions inactive individuals of all ages. In addition, she has experience working with oncology patients who may be suffering the ill effects of cancer treatment.

Her favorite part of working in the physical therapy profession is establishing a personal connection with each and every patient and getting to know them beyond just their physical presentation. She believes strongly in treating the patient as a whole and tailoring the rehabilitation to the individual.

Jenna utilizes a comprehensive treatment approach including skilled hands-on work with manual therapy and dry needling, as well as education on movement and home management tips to help patients improve function and reduce pain. Jenna works full time at our downtown Milwaukee clinic and has available appointment hours Monday-Friday. She is also designated as the Clinic Director of the downtown Milwaukee clinic with part of her time dedicated to managing a smooth, efficient operation in support of excellent customer service and supporting her teammates. 


“I look forward to each day spending time with patients and helping them achieve their personal goals of returning to a pain free and functional lifestyle.”


Nearly all of Body Mechanics' patients have been referred to us by friends, family and colleagues.

ABSOLUTELY the BEST!! My therapist who works her magic is Jenna..she's caring and passionate about her job..always makes you smile and finds a positive in any situation. Would highly recommend to anyone!


I am so happy that I have been going to Physical Therapy for shoulder stiffness! My shoulder was never the same after I slipped and fell on it three years ago! Physical therapist Jenna Mielke has really accomplished a miracle! I have felt startling improvement with the range of my left shoulder with only 4 dry needle treatments. I highly recommend Jenna and this treatment for anyone looking for this type of relief!


I am currently working with Jenna Mielke who has expertise  to work with my vestibular issues. Jenna is very professional and absolutely knows what she is doing. Jenna is also very personable and I have found it a joy to get to know her and work with her. After all, physical therapy is a two-person job! I would highly recommend Jenna for any type of physical therapy you need. I guarantee you will not be disappointed


I came to Physical Therapy after 10 months of chronic pelvic pain that no one-- not a chiropractor, not an acupuncturist, not an orthopedist, not another physical therapy clinic-- had satisfactorily diagnosed and treated. I had started thinking I might have to live with the pain the rest of my life. But within two weeks of coming to physical therapy, Jenna came up with treatment--based on listening to me, examination, and some suspicions my orthopedist had-- that began moving me toward being pain free. Within a month I was pain free and have remained so!


Jenna helped me work through an extremely painful strain in my neck this week. She's professional, very personable, knows her stuff, and her technique brought me relief nearly immediately. Highly recommend Jenna and Body Mechanics overall!


I'm getting old and been to my share of physical therapists. Jenna Mielke at Body Mechanics is absolutely the BEST PT by leaps and bounds. Extremely competent in both diagnosing and fixing the issues, I highly recommend her for post surgery as well as fixing those aches and pains that creep up. She gives very realistic, doable exercises to do at home. You don't need to be a gymnastics gold medalist to do them!


I can't speak highly enough about all the physical therapists at Body Mechanics! As a running coach, BM is the only place I feel confident sending my runners to knowing they will get the best care and be able to stay running while in treatment when possible (every runners dream!). The Alter G treadmill is a giant bonus for those recovering from injuries.

Personally, I have worked with 2 therapists at the downtown location and had amazing care. Carl helped me complete a marathon 5 months post-partum after my first baby while I battled SI joint instability and plantar faciitis issues. Jenna has been helping me after baby #2 with pelvic floor strengthening and general tune-ups. I can't thank them enough for keeping me and my runners continuing to reach our goals!


I have been going to Body Mechanics for years and been treated for maintenance, new issues, or reoccurring old issues. Within the last two years I have been going exclusively to see Jenna and could not be happier with the results I've received and how I am treated when I am seen. It starts at the front desk and the warm reception when entering the office and the follow-up with appointments. Jenna takes the time to truly listen and decide the best course of action with the patient's input, understanding everyone's life and lifestyles may be different and have different needs. Jenna has been amazing to get me back to and maintain my activity levels.
