Jamie Scomak PT, DPT, CLT, PRPC is an Ocean County native whose passion for physical therapy began after a high school lacrosse ankle injury landed her in treatment. She sought Kean University's accelerated program with Rutgers University earning her BA in biology and doctorate of physical therapy. Dr. Scomak has an insatiable thirst for learning, attending well over 30 continuing education courses. She is certified in lymphedema treatment and management from the Norton School and pelvic rehabilitation from the Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute.
Dr. Scomak immediately specialized in orthopedics and pelvic health physical therapy after an inspiring student clinical rotation in Gainesville, Florida. She returned home to the Jersey Shore to develop a successful local hospital outpatient program. After building this program for eight years, she is thrilled to start a new path by leading IDPT’s second office location in Toms River, in order to benefit the community located in southern Jersey. Dr. Scomak joins Inner Dynamics Physical Therapy, eager to be a part of, and continue to grow, a team of pelvic therapists to serve a population that often suffers silently and unnecessarily.
Jamie understands the frustration many patients have who believe they must suffer silently, due to her personal experience with childhood bladder and bowel problems that followed her into adulthood. In addition, she has grown a fierce passion for the prenatal, pregnant, and postpartum woman after her own fertility struggles. Dr. Scomak is a outspoken advocate for more research in physical therapy addressing the mechanical barriers to infertility and is currently a site for a national study of physical therapy treatment for the mechanical barriers to physical therapy.
When she’s not treating patients, Jamie is probably knitting, doing yoga, or dancing with her husband and little girl.
