Jesse Awenus (Physiotherapy)
Jesse specializes in managing acute and chronic pain stemming from sports injuries as well as the aches brought on by long hours of sedentary desk work. He believes in providing his patients with the independence, confidence, and ownership they need for their recovery.
Jesse’s background in strength and conditioning allows him to tailor his treatments to the unique needs of each individual patient. He uses a movement-based examination to figure out what might be contributing to the pain and from there may elect to incorporate hands-on manual therapy, dry needling, and/or a specific exercise routine to get his patient moving and feeling better as quickly as possible. A cornerstone of Jesse’s practice is education: he believes that each patient should leave their assessment with a clear understanding of what’s wrong and how they might fix it.
Jesse was a competitive basketball player who represented Team Canada at the 2005 Pan-American Maccabi Games in Santiago, Chile. He last represented Canada as a Team Physiotherapist at the 2022 Maccabiah games in Israel. He now enjoys staying active by weight training, playing golf and volleyball, and can also be found playing with his dog any chance he gets. Aside from clinical practice, Jesse is also a health and wellness contributor to Huffington Post Canada.
