Rachel’s approach to physiotherapy focuses on combining manual therapy and specialized exercise prescription to help each individual reach their goals. She strives to create an environment where each client can share their experiences surrounding their symptoms, to understand how those experiences are influencing their pain, and to work together to create a treatment plan specific to each client’s personal movement goals.
She received her Master of Physical Therapy from McMaster University, since then she has had the privilege of working with clients of all ages and through a wide variety of injuries and conditions. She is currently working on her Diploma of Advanced Manual and Manipulative Therapy Physiotherapy Program. In order to better serve clients she has also taken further education in vestibular rehabilitation, athletic taping and Functional Movement Assessment, as well as being certified to provide Acupuncture. Most recently she attended a course delving deeper into our understanding of pain and what strategies we can implement to best avoid letting pain stop people from enjoying what they love. She is passionate about providing evidence-based treatment that is individual to each client.
Outside of work she enjoys playing basically any sport but especially softball (for the past several summers this has included playing in St. George). She also enjoys hiking and exploring with her German Shepherd, Clyde.
