Jenny Telfer-Crum
BScHK (Hons), MScPT

Jenny's passion is helping women to better understand and reconnect with their bodies to help address their pelvic health concerns through education, education and empowerment. Women’s pelvic health has, unfortunately, been considered a taboo topic and has historically been overlooked in health education, our medical system, and our culture as a whole. This means that concerns about bladder leaking, pelvic organ prolapse, sexual pain or pelvic/low back pain that have been overlooked or considered “normal” with aging or after having children. Through her role as a Pelvic Health Physiotherapist, she has worked with women to identify and talk about these issues, as well as review how to address them through a multifaceted, holistic health approach. This approach includes physiotherapy assessment and treatment (internal assessment of the pelvic floor muscles available, as well as gentle manual therapy techniques internally and externally), as well as addressing other contributing factors as such health history, stress, sleep, relationships, exercise.

Through Pelvic Health Physiotherapy, her goal is to help you feel great - physically and emotionally – so that you can exercise without leaking, enjoy pain-free sex, and resume your preferred activities feeling supported, comfortable and confident. Jenny has always had an interest in women’s health and wellness concerns, including fitness, pain management, stress reduction and sexuality, and she integrates all these topics into her Biopsychosocial approach.

Aside from holding clinic hours in Milton and Burlington Ontario, she also spends time as teaching assistant with Pelvic Health Solutions in Vaughn, Ontario, and Antony Lo - The Physio Detective internationally and Jenny also enjoys singing, dancing, being outdoors and doing various forms of fitness including CrossFit.
