Jen LaRoy Physiotherapist

Jen LaRoy

BKin, MScPT | Registered Physiotherapist | She/Her

Pelvic Health, Clinical Pilates, Biopsychosocial Model of Care

CHILLIWACK and ABBOTSFORD, BC

Jen's approach is to see the strength and resilience of each individual in her care and empower them to connect more fully to their stories and their bodies in ways that are meaningful to them.

Jen completed her Master’s of Science in Physical Therapy in 2009 at the University of Alberta. The beginning of her career was spent gaining skills in a variety of different inpatient clinical settings such as the ICU, orthopaedic trauma and joint replacements, neurology (stroke, TBI, brain cancer) and spinal cord injury. Working in all these settings led Jen to a deeper appreciation of movement and how loss of movement can affect a person not only physically, but mentally and emotionally as well. When Jen started working in private practice, she trained in Stott Pilates so as to further her knowledge of human movement and to become more equipped to help people recover through active, movement based treatment. Jen became a pelvic health Physiotherapist in 2013 and set her career on a new path.

 

Jen is passionate about connecting with people pre and post natally with the goal of empowering and equipping with knowledge about body changes and assisting in maintaining movement and strength when needed. She believes in the strength and resilience of the human body and is passionate about post natal pelvic floor rehabilitation, post Caesarean section rehabilitation, core rehabilitation and return to activities that are meaningful to each individual client. Jen also strongly believes in helping people understand their body and body parts particularly in people who are experiencing pelvic pain. 

 

Jen believes in active listening and building an environment for people to feel safe while sharing their stories and seeking treatment with her. Jen understands that seeking help is not always easy and respects the courage that it takes for some people to reach out. Jen’s intention is to be a useful part of each person’s journey and she works hard to provide enough education and appropriate treatment to ensure people leave her care feeling empowered and more connected to their bodies.  

Outside of work, Jen is connecting to the earth through running along trails, hiking up mountains, sitting by the river and planting veggies that don’t always seem to grow! She is a committed Aunt to three kiddos and you can always find her tossing one of them over her shoulder, spinning them around, making up silly dances or reading books with them. As Jen believes movement is also a way to work through some of the difficulties of the day, she also just might be found dancing in her kitchen at the end of the day!
