Janine joined THE Downtown Sports Clinics in 2015, and in addition to treating patients, has been the clinic director of both downtown locations since 2021.
Janine is a “Sports Fanatic + Mobility Nerd” who loves to be active, playing competitive soccer and golf, in addition to working out, cycling, running and hiking. Janine played competitive basketball and softball and as a high-level athlete, she recognizes your drive to compete, and the frustration of being on the sideline and the challenge of returning post injury.
After 15+ years of clinical experience, she designs a treatment plan to match your goals. Her expertise and skills include manual therapy, needling (IMS and acupuncture), vestibular rehabilitation, concussion management, and functional movement analysis. Further certifications in FR® (Functional Range Release) Spine, as well as a FRC® (Functional Range Conditioning) Mobility Specialist Janine, uses the science in every rehabilitation program.
While looking at how the entire body works together, Janine has a special interest in neck and shoulder injuries as well as the foot and ankle complex. She is also specialized for golfers, trained as a Medical Professional through the Titleist Performance Institute.
With you, she determines the best treatment approach for your long-term health and activity.
I see Janine Ankenmann at TDSC to help me recover from a motor vehicle accident. She's professional, diligent, responsive, empathetic, and, above all, knowledgeable. TDSC came highly recommended from colleagues. I did well to follow that advice: my experience has been consistently good, despite complex injuries and a lot of pain. Janine clearly has significant expertise and broad experience. I trust her. Janine, thank you for your excellent therapy to my back, neck, and jaw. - Josh J., 38
I worked with Janine as she was recommended by my physiotherapist. Janine's professional approach and excellent knowledge on concussion and post-concussive symptoms allowed her to identify the issues and prescribe treatment protocol and exercises that have helped me get back on track and be symptom-free. I am grateful for that and I would highly recommend Janine. - Kinga
