Michelle studied physiotherapy with a specialization in the management of musculoskeletal conditions, getting her Master’s degree from McGill University and an Advanced Health Care Practice degree from Western University. She has the designation of FCAMPT (Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manual and Manipulative Physical Therapy), which is regarded as the highest level of manual therapy and advanced clinical reasoning training available across Canada.
With this training she can effectively help her patients in cases such as sprains, strains or tears, as well as injuries to ligaments, muscles, tendons or articular cartilage (meniscus, labrum). She can also provide care for joint pain and arthritis, disc herniations, neck pain, headaches, dizziness, low back pain, sciatica and more. She has experience managing patients following motor vehicle accidents and work injuries, as well as delivering post-operative care.
Her experience managing sports injuries and concussions began with the McGill Basketball and Football teams. She has had the opportunity to learn about concussion management through McGill’s rigorous screening and treatment program developed by Dr. Delaney, the head physician for the Montreal Impact Soccer Club and team therapist for the Montreal Alouettes and McGill Football. She is responsible for concussion screening and return to play decisions with the Hawks Junior A and U-18 hockey teams and collaborates with athletic trainers and coaching staff using a step-wise approach to reintegrate the athlete to their sport.
She is currently specializing in pelvic floor physiotherapy. She is trained in the management of urinary incontinence, including urge and effort incontinence, and in the management of prolapses. She is looking forward to bringing this emerging specialty to the clinic and making care accessible in this region.
