Jenna Iberle, PT, DPT

Jenna Iberle, PT, DPTPhysical Therapist

Dr. Iberle comes to Omaha from her hometown of Wadsworth, Illinois after attending Creighton University’s physical therapy program. After graduating in 2016 with her doctorate in physical therapy, she returned home to Illinois to work in an outpatient orthopedic physical therapy clinic. There she enjoyed treating a variety of patients but also attended continuing education courses on the pelvis and pelvic floor. This continuing education fostered her passion for women’s health/pelvic health physical therapy.

Jenna decided to follow her passion and pursue a specialty certification in women’s health physical therapy by becoming Creighton’s first Women’s Health Physical Therapy Resident and subsequently obtaining a position of staff physical therapist at Creighton Therapy and Wellness focusing on pelvic health. When not serving her patients, you can find Jenna attending concerts with friends, cheering on the 2016 World Champion Chicago Cubs, dog sitting, or playing volleyball as much as she can. She looks forward to serving the needs of the Omaha community, so feel free to contact Creighton Therapy and Wellness to set up an appointment with Jenna today!
