Jenna Spenlau, SweatNET Ambassador and Physical Therapist at Onward CLT, is new to the Charlotte area and shares her experience as a PT and why you can benefit from seeing a physical therapist!
How can you benefit from seeing a physical therapist?
If you have a nagging ache or pain limiting your fitness routine and preventing you from reaching your goals in the gym, or keeping you from doing what you love, you should see a PT. My role with Onward Charlotte is to minimize your pain in order to maximize your performance. Whether you’re suffering from an injury and need guidance on how to keep training or you want to get the most out of your mobility routine or learn how to recover better from your workouts, or simply enhance your performance in the gym, come see me at Onward Charlotte. We can give you the right tools to do just what you’re looking for.
Now get to know Jenna Spenlau, SweatNET Ambassador and Physical Therapist at Onward CLT, who can help you with your PT needs!
I became interested in Physical Therapy when I was an injured runner in middle school and went through the rehab process. Since then, physical therapy has helped me learn so much about my body, its capabilities, and how to keep moving and stay healthy. My favorite thing about PT is how it allows me to spend so much time with my patients, develop long-lasting relationships, and give them the knowledge and tools to continue living healthy lifestyles despite injury. I have a great deal of experience working with functional fitness athletes, runners, yoga enthusiasts, and sweaters of all kinds!
Outside of PT, I recently moved to Charlotte, so I am very new to the area, but so far absolutely love the endless amount of outdoor activities and how active the Charlotte community is! You can find me sweating at a local CrossFit gym or SweatNET event, hiking in the mountains, or trying out a new local coffee shop!
