Dr Westlake graduated Cum Laude from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College and completed her Bachelor of Science Honours degree in Kinesiology from the University of Western Ontario. For over 10 years, she has been fortunate to work in clinics, gyms, and on the field with sports teams.
She has been trained by Dr Mark Scappaticci in the Functional Integrated Therapy. Her treatment approach is focused on restoring function, preventing re-injury, improving performance and reducing pain. Dr Westlake's chiropractic treatments integrate a variety of tools including; Dry needling, Electro-acupuncture, Myo-Matrix Release, cupping, sports massage, Fascial Abrasions Technique, Shockwave, Joint manipulation/mobilization and rehabilitative exercise (Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization, Functional Range Systems, Pilates, Foundation Training, Yoga). Dr Westlake treats the entire body by focusing on identifying the root cause and addressing the anatomy, the physiology and the neurological systems involved.
Dr Westlake believes movement plays a large role in a patient's recovery. She has extensive experience guiding patients through rehabilitation all the way up to performance for a wide spectrum of demands including; professional athletes, general activity/health, chronic disease, pre and post-natal care, and acute or chronic injuries. While the treatments are integral to restoring tissue function Dr Westlake teaches her patients functional movement and exercises to help maintain their results.
With a passion for health, keeping active and enjoying the outdoors, Dr Westlake has played many different sports including water polo, soft ball, rugby, cycling, running, swimming, rock climbing, surfing, paddle boarding, snowboarding and resistance training. She loves to learn and as such continues to explore new research and courses regarding the body, injuries and recovery to further improve her treatments. When working with patients, Dr Westlake's goal is to return patients to their optimal function as quickly as possible and in doing so, to get them moving even better than before.
