Jenna Mielke

PT, DPT

Jenna dreamt of being a physical therapist long ago after being a patient herself and suffering two different knee injuries requiring extensive rehabilitation.She completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point where she was a shooting guard on the women's basketball team earning Honorable Mention All Conference honors. 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. A common condition is tightness, weakness and inhibition of the pelvic floor muscles causing one to be unable to generate adequate muscle contraction and difficulty building strength. 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 an excellent addition to the Body Mechanics team and is gifted and available for educational presentations of interest to special groups upon request.

 

“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.”

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!
