Greetings from SMI,
Putting together this newsletter every few months has been a fun and enlightening process. As we search the current library of literature we find ourselves learning new information as well as reviewing the research that has played such a crucial role in formulating our approach and techniques.It is always fascinating to see what has actually been studied and more importantly how we can apply this information both inside and outside the clinic. We hope this information has been as beneficial to you as it has been to us.
Enjoy the rest of your summer and we hope you are able to stay active, healthy and pain free!
~The SMI Team
SMI is excited to welcome Jenna Boren DeNucci as our newest team member!
Jenna recently relocated to sunny California from the colder climes of Minneapolis, MN. Upon obtaining her bachelor’s degree in Biology and Education from Saint Olaf College in Northfield, MN she decided to focus on running competitively. After struggling with a few running related injuries, she decided to go to chiropractic school and graduated from Northwestern Health Sciences in 2005 as a doctor of chiropractic. While in school she started her certification in Active Release Techniques (ART) and it has since been her primary form of treatment. She has worked at various Ironman events, local triathlons, and has spoken to running groups about injury treatment and prevention. Jenna has experience working with athletes of all abilities from someone who is just getting started to the professional athlete/performer. She also enjoys working with people who experience symptoms related to the repetitive stress of their daily lives like sitting, typing, and carrying children.
She loves helping people stay active and assisting them in achieving their own personal goals. She has coached high school, college, and recreational athletes. She competed in the USA Olympic Trials marathon in 2008 and 2012 and hopes to qualify again for the 2016 trials. Jenna and her husband, Chris, a resident physician at Stanford, enjoy exploring the world on foot or on their single speed bikes while stopping to eat as often as possible.
Jenna will be providing 30 minute ART only sessions. Call today to schedule an ART appointment with Jenna or one of our other ART specialists!
