My name is Jess Willemse.  I am a registered Physiotherapist in Ramara, Ontario, Canada.  I work with patients in my clinic outside Orillia, in my satellite clinic in Muskoka for the Low Back Pain Rapid Access Clinic, and virtually with patients from all over Ontario. 
I graduated with a Bachelor of Science Kinesiology (Hons) with Summa Cum Laude from McMaster University in 2011, and a Masters in Physiotherapy from the University of British Columbia in 2013.  I am one of the few certified McKenzie MDT clinicians north of the GTA after completing my certification in 2018.  In 2021 I became an Outcomes Accountable Clinician with a company called IMC, which allows me to track patient data and present cases weekly at a Grand Rounds meeting with the most experienced McKenzie therapists in North America.
I am also an Advanced Practice Provider for the government-run Low Back Pain Rapid Access Clinic, providing care for the Muskoka and Ramara regions.
My special interests in physiotherapy include neck and back pain, sciatica and referred nerve pain, postural dysfunctions, and joint pain that has not improved with standard rehabilitation. 
I am passionate about providing quality rehabilitation efficiently, focusing on client autonomy by decreasing passive care with the underlying goal of reducing my client's dependence on the practitioner.  Using the McKenzie system we can achieve long-lasting results by focusing on the underlying cause and therefore working not only on recovery, but just as importantly on prevention.
