Marie-Josée Forget
Instructor

Marie-Josée Forget (MJ) PT

With over 20 years of clinical experience in pelvic health, MJ is a much sought-after physiotherapist for the treatment of incontinence, pelvic pain and pregnancy- related pelvic girdle pain. A graduate of the University of Ottawa’s Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy program (1995), MJ began her post-graduate studies in pelvic health in 1997, pursuing courses in Canada, US and in Europe.

MJ is a pioneer in this field and was the first pelvic health physiotherapist to bring this much needed service to Northern Ontario. She is fully bilingual and treats pelvic health issues for all genders.

MJ was honoured when asked to join Pelvic Health Solutions as an Associate Instructor in 2011. She is involved in mentoring clinicians and medical students from the Northern Ontario School of Medicine and provides continuing education for physicians, nurse practitioners and other allied health professionals.

MJ has been involved in clinical research and has co-authored a research paper with Dr. Sinead Dufour at McMaster University looking at the link between LBP and the pelvic floor disorders. MJ has been invited to speak at many conferences both in Canada and in the US on the topics of Pelvic Health.

MJ has been drawing anatomy since her University days and has developed an anatomical model of the pelvic floor muscles which is sold internationally to health professionals. You can find her models on www.totalpelvichealth.ca

MJ was born and raised in Sudbury but has called North Bay her home for the last 24 years. She is a proud mother of 2 kids, and, in her free time, you will find MJ attending pelvic health conferences, doing yoga, reading books (and pelvic health research), drawing, cuddling with her dog and making lots of pelvic models!
