My education began at the University of Western Ontario where I received an Honours Degree in Health Science in 2005. My training continued at McMaster University where I obtained a Masters of Science in Physical Therapy in 2007. After a few years of working in a private orthopedic clinic I decided to return to school and achieve the highest level of training in orthopaedic manual physiotherapy. In 2010, I successfully completed a Masters of Clinical Science in Manipulative Therapy and achieved the designation as a Fellow of the Canadian Association of Manipulative Therapy. In addition to my University education, I have taken many post-graduate courses in order to stay up to date with the latest evidence and diversify my clinical skills. Most recently, I have completed a one year clinical mentorship in the Integrated Systems Model (ISM) with Diane Lee. This one year program taught me to treat patients efficiently by targeting the driver for the specific task that is dysfunctional. This approach leads to fewer treatments and better results. I have completed coursework with the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute and I successfully completed the McMaster University Contemporary Medical Acupuncture program. I am also a Stott Pilates trained instructor. I believe that neuromuscular training through Pilates exercise is essential to long-term benefits of therapy as well as prevention of injuries. More recently, I have been designated as a running expert after completing a course that focused on assessment and treatment of running injuries. In addition to those mentioned, I have attended courses and seminars on functional strengthening, core strengthening and mobilizations with movement. I have also attended various courses with the Advanced Physical Therapy Education Institute pertaining to the latest evidence on the low back, mid back and shoulder dysfunctions. I have experience in successfully treating a wide range of conditions ranging from sports injuries to chronic persistent injuries, movement impairments and postural dysfunctions. My treatment philosophy involves looking at the body as a whole in order to determine the root cause. I believe that the best approach is to use a combination of manual therapy and acupuncture to address tissue and joint restrictions and than provide specific exercises to improve flexibility and strength in order to restore normal movement patterns. rnrnI am an active member of my profession. I am a member of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association and a member of the Orthopaedic Division. I am a clinical facilitator with the Univeristy of Toronto Physical Therapy Department. I am also an Assistant Instructor with the Orthopaedic Division post-graudate manual therapy training. I take students during their advanced clinical internships and help them integrate their theoretical knowledge into clinical skills. Lastly, I provide mentorship hours to physiotherapists pursuing their manual therapy designation.
