History:
Originally from Leamington, I became interested in the field of physical therapy while working in clinics during my co-op placements as a student at the University of Windsor.  I have loved and played sports all my life, and found physical therapy to be a great field that combines my love of physical activity with my interest in anatomy and physiology. 
I have experience in treating a variety of routine and complex outpatient orthopaedic conditions (including WSIB and MVA), in addition to neurological and post-operative cases.  I have special clinical interests in sport therapy and in cervical spine dysfunction.  
I continue to receive ongoing mentorship from experienced manual therapists, and enjoy problem-solving complex cases with my colleagues.  I have taken, and continue to take, numerous continuing education courses.  I thoroughly enjoy working as part of the strong team we have at ABPT, and will continue to expand my knowledge and skills to maximize positive outcomes for my patients.

Denise Power

Registered Physiotherapist

Credentials:

  • Bachelor of Science - Physical Therapy, graduate University of Western University 1988
  • Member of the Canadian and Ontario Physiotherapy Association

History:
My interest in Physiotherapy began around age 10, when I wrote an essay on how I would follow in my father's footsteps to become a Physiotherapist. In the eighteen years as a Physiotherapist I have had the privilege to work in an inpatient hospital setting and outpatient clinics, primarily in Orthopaedics. Together with my work experience and manual therapy courses, I look forward to offering clients an individualized treatment program tailored to their needs.


Diane McLeod

Registered Physiotherapist

Credentials:
Hon.BSc.(1984)UWO
BSc.(Physical Therapy)(1988)University of Toronto
Member of CPA/OPA-orthopedic, sports, women's health divisions
Certified Pilates Instructor-matwork specialist (2010) Toronto
Balanced Body Program Instructor at ABPT


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.
