About Jamie DeMarco
Jamie DeMarco received her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the University of Pittsburgh in 2005. After a decade of working within the traditional outpatient clinic setting, Dr. DeMarco realized how broken our current state of healthcare was and wanted to make a change. She realized she wanted more for the patient and to feel more fulfilled as a practitioner. Dr. DeMarco completed her postgraduate certification in Medical Therapeutic Yoga in 2019, and it was through this training that she learned and began living by the biopsychosocial approach to treating patients' pain. Her motto is, "Treat the patient. Not the part." Dr. DeMarco owns a private practice, Art in Motion Physical Therapy and Wellness, in Wexford, and specializes in orthopaedic and pelvic floor dysfunction.
