I want to help you regain control over your body. Plain and simple.
What does regaining control mean for you? In-home visits while baby naps? Virtual Visits on your lunch break? Clinic visits that fit into your commute? Let's make your Physiotherapy and pelvic floor goals realistic and attainable.
I value your time, and try to give you as much of mine as possible. One-on-one care, regardless of the platform you choose. Targeted exercises via the Embodia app to help you stay on track.
I provide in-person, virtual, and in-home Physiotherapy services. With 12 years of experience in the field, you can always count on me for evidence-based care that is tailored to your needs.
My strongest areas of practice are Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy, Manual Therapy, Acupuncture, soft tissue release, and Pilates-based exercise. I enjoy providing free education sessions and mini-classes on my social media pages.
I treat my patients how I would like to be treated. So, I provide one-on-one care, therapy that makes a measurable difference, realistic timelines, and exercises designed to get you moving independently as quickly as possible.
Emerge Physiotherapy is able to provide safe In-Person and Virtual Physiotherapy for general injuries and pelvic floor concerns. I have taken the appropriate steps to ensure your health and safety, and look forward to seeing you in person soon!
Pelvic Health Physiotherapy is all about helping you diagnose and treat any problems with your pelvic floor.
I engage patients in a thorough assessment which includes: listening to your story, health history, diet and fluids, exercise habits, work, home life, and anything else you deem important. From there, we decide together what needs to be assessed and treated.
Common issues include incontinence (bladder leakage), diastasis recti (abdominal muscle separation), overactive bladder, painful intercourse, prolapse, post-prostatectomy issues, pregnancy-related dysfuntion, menopausal changes, and even some cases of unresolved low back/hip pain.
The term "orthopaedics" encompasses the muscles and joints in your body which, unfortunately, are susceptible to injury.
Orthopaedic Physiotherapy involves listening to your story, then assessing and treating the issue with evidence-based interventions. This may include any combination of Manual Therapy, Acupunture, exercise, and lifestyle modifications.
Common issues include sprains, strains, post-operative challenges, sports injuries, whiplash, arthritis, postural dysfuntion, TMJ pain, and headaches.
VIrtual Physiotherapy involves providing care for patients over a computer or device. Most insurance providers will cover this type of therapy, but it is advisable to call and check before you start.
I provide Virtual Physiotherapy over a platform called Zoom Healthcare, which complies with privacy legislation and keeps you as safe as possible.
For Virtual Physiotherapy to work, the therapist must be an excellent listener and be able to spot movement issues very quickly.
While this method is ideal for clients who have already been assessed in-person, it is possible to provide an initial appointment virtually. For example, I have completed many assessments during the COVID-19 period of social distancing with excellent results.
Once it is safe to provide in-home care, I look forward to being able to help you in your space!
Any type of Physiotherapy can be provided in-home. It is a great option for new parents, busy professionals, seniors, or anybody who does not want to visit a traditional clinic.
I like seeing you in your space where you are comfortable. It helps me problem-solve better and develop a plan that works best for you!
I will primarily see patients in the Ancaster, Hamilton, and Burlington geographic areas. However, I will reserve a few spaces for out-of-area patients. Contact me for details.
My favourite thing about being a Physiotherapist is helping my patients regain control over their bodies. Much of the frustration surrounding injuries and dysfunction can be boiled down to control … or lack thereof. While it is normal at first to be fearful of activities causing pain, it doesn’t take long before pain and dysfunction begin to control our lives.
As a Physiotherapist, it is my job to help you feel better. Manual Therapy, soft tissue techniques and/or acupuncture can decrease your pain and increase your mobility. However, the most effective part of my job includes giving you targeted exercises and lifestyle changes, which usually make a lasting impact and give you more control.
Whether you are a Pelvic Health patient with incontinence/pain, an athlete with a sprain, or a person with a stiff joint, I love helping you feel engaged in the process. Education is key. It is important to me that we spend time assessing and understanding what is happening with your body, and how we go about fixing it together as a team. When we both take responsibility in the recovery process, the likelihood of success is better!
Thank you in advance for trusting me with your care.
