Biography

Michelle obtained her Master's degree in Physical Therapy from Queen's University. She is a passionate physiotherapist who strives to provide the best possible care to her clients and works with them in achieving their goals. She has taken continuing education courses with the Orthopedic Division of Canada, and is certified in acupuncture and Gunn IMS needling.

Michelle maintains an active clinical interest in treating sports-related musculoskeletal injuries, particularly those stubborn and recurring injuries that won't improve. She strongly believes in finding the root cause of your pain and employs various treatments, including manual therapy and dry needling techniques, to address those issues. Michelle also believes that patient education and an individualized exercise plan are key elements in returning to physical activity and preventing re-injury.

Outside of work, Michelle is an avid hiker and skier, and loves exploring nature with her husband and baby boy. She also really enjoys trying new things--you can find her at a new restaurant, picking up a new sport, working on a new skill or even trying out a new recipe in the kitchen!
