History:
Over the 27 years that I have been a physical therapist, I have had the opportunity to work in both the hospital and in private practice focusing mainly on orthopaedic physical therapy. After 17 years, I was introduced to Pilates-based movement re-education and I could see the potential that this form of movement based therapy could have for the rehab client. I have developed a treatment program (Balanced Body Program) designed to address postural dysfunctions, retrain core support and stabilization, alleviate chronic neck/back/shoulder/knee issues, and balance re-educaton. Each client is given an individualized assessment and is taught how to support their bodies from centre, stabilizing through the myofascial lines of movement.
During my years of practice as a physical therapist, I have taken numerous courses including manual therapy, neurology, respiratory and exercise therapy and I look forward to the opportunity to combine my physical therapy experience and Pilates training to provide individualized treatment and exercise program instruction.
