About Jennifer Veitch

Physiotherapist

Jennifer received her BScPT from Dalhousie University in 1999. She has worked in private practices in Halifax, NS, St. Johns, NL and Corner Brook, NL for most of her thirteen practice years with the exception of a few years in the outpatient orthopaedic department of Western Memorial Regional Hospital in Corner Brook, Newfoundland. She treats a number of different conditions/injuries including repetitive strain, motor vehicle accident, work and sport related injuries. Jenn also has specialized training in Vestibular Rehabilitation, Temperomandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ) and Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation.

Jen was born in Corner Brook as was her husband and the majority of their immediate family lives there as well. As it is for most people, their lives are very busy between children’s activities and work. As a family they like to downhill ski in the winter and Jenn also plays soccer and beach volleyball during the summer and indoor volleyball through the winter months.

Jennifer Veitch completed her Masters of Clinical Science in Manipulative Physiotherapy and was granted fellowship in the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Therapists (FCAMPT) in July of 2013.

According to CAMPT, “Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy is a specialized area of physiotherapy for the management of neuro-musculo-skeletal conditions, based on clinical reasoning, using highly specific treatment approaches including gentle, hands-on techniques and therapeutic exercise. Manipulative Physiotherapy also encompasses, and is driven by, the available scientific and clinical evidence and the biopsychosocial framework of each individual patient.

FCAMPT Physiotherapists have completed extensive, internationally recognized post-graduate education focusing on the diagnosis and treatment of complicated muscle and joint problems.

Jennifer is just the third Physiotherapist in Newfoundland registered as a Fellow with CAMPT and is the first and only Physiotherapist to earn this distinction on the west coast of the island.

Achieving this fellowship allows her to offer advanced orthopaedic Physiotherapy assessment and treatment to the people of the west coast of Newfoundland
