Olympic Medical Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation welcomes two new physical therapists, Jenna Smith and Marta Hahn. Both Smith and Hahn practice at the Sequim facility at 800 N. 5th Ave., Suite 102.
Smith is a recent graduate of the University of Minnesota and holds a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT). Hahn has her Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of Texas Health Science Center and her Master of Science in Health and Rehabilitation Sciences with an emphasis on Sports and Orthopaedics from the University of Pittsburgh. Hahn also completed a fellowship in Sports Medicine and has been practicing for approximately 18 years.
“We are fortunate to have such high quality therapists join our staff,” says Eric Palenik, PT, DPT, operations manager of Olympic Medical Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation. “Both Marta and Jenna provide excellent patient-centered care, and possess great energy and compassion for their profession. They are outstanding additions to our excellent physical therapy team, as well as our community.”
Smith is professionally interested in improving orthopaedic conditions in the shoulder, back, hip and sacroiliac (SI) joint with manual therapy skills and patient-specific exercise programs. “I enjoy working with patients who have balance and stability issues,” says Smith. “I am able to identify what contributing factors affect their balance and find ways to improve their condition, while decreasing their risk of falling.”
Hahn’s professional interest lies in orthopaedics and sports medicine, but also in women’s health including treatment of incontinence and pelvic pain.
