Jamin Lockert

MScPT
PHYSIOTHERAPIST

Growing up in an active household, my love of movement and exercise came early. After experiencing my fair share of injuries throughout my childhood and teen years, naturally I was drawn toward physiotherapy as I began to consider future careers. Thanks to a basketball scholarship and a sense of adventure, I moved to Alberta to further pursue my goal of becoming a physiotherapist, completing my undergraduate degree in Kinesiology, and eventually my Master of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of Alberta.

Post-graduation, my additional learning has focused on athletes and their injury recovery, including Functional Dry Needling, biomechanics and first responder training. Prior to joining the team at Renew, I had the privilege of working with the top sports medicine specialists and orthopedic surgeons of central Alberta, learning and growing in my understanding of the human body. This experience also led to me having the unique opportunity of working with some of the top national physiotherapists, athletic therapists, and sport medicine physicians at the Canada Winter Games in 2019. I love working with all types of individuals, from elite level athletes to someone unable to perform daily activities, and anyone in between. My practical experience ranges from sporting injuries, post-operative care, chronic pain, and minor aches and discomforts, in addition to motor vehicle and workplace injuries.

JAMIN’S PHILOSOPHY

I truly believe that there are only a few injuries or conditions that cannot be improved by exercise. My treatment style focuses on movement and activity to expedite your recovery and get you back to doing what you love. I use manual therapy and Dry Needling (IMS) to assist in getting you more comfortable and in less pain, to make exercising easier. My goal for you is one of long-term health, rather than just short-term fixes. I give individualized education and attention to any concern or issue in a one-on-one setting to ensure that your needs are met each and every appointment.

Fun facts about Jamin

What’s your favourite movie?

I find myself too often in front of Netflix looking for something new to watch. Some classic favourites are “He Got Game” and “Shawshank Redemption”, otherwise any sort of comedy movie will do.

What’s your favourite music?

I have a wide array of favourite music, anywhere from hip hop and rap to alternative rock, depending on the day. Now that I live in Edmonton, I hope to be able to see a lot more live shows.

What’s your favourite meal?

My wife and I both love to cook. We bake our own bagels and breads, make our own pasta, and are always up for trying a new recipe or type of cooking. The Food Network is just background noise at our place for us to gain inspiration and ideas on what to try next.

What’s your favourite exercise?

The deadlift is one of the most fundamental movements a person will do in their life. Whether it is lifting up a loaded barbell, lifting their child or grandchild, or even lifting the laundry basket, this simple movement is present in everyday life. Performing this lift as an exercise will not only strengthen the lower body, but also can help reduce risk of injury to the low back.
