IN CLINIC TREATMENTS
Starting May 20, 2020
As of May 20th, we are starting to offer in clinic physiotherapy appointments. Please call the clinic 604-943-3518 to book an appointment. We have made numerous changes to ensure that physiotherapy services are being offered in a safe, effective manner. Your therapist may offer you a follow-up appointment via telehealth (virtual physiotherapy) in some circumstances if that is deemed to be the most appropriate treatment.
During this time, we are offering remote physiotherapy. While “hands-on” treatment is an important part of physiotherapy care, remote assessment, education, exercise instruction and home treatment choices will be an effective option for clients as we move through this extraordinary situation. We are working to make this available to appropriate clients. If you are interested in setting up an appointment or would like like to learn more, email firstname.lastname@example.org

Vanessa graduated from McGill University in 1998 with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy. For nearly 20 years Vanessa has worked in various orthopaedic and sports injury clinics in Ontario and British Columbia. Vanessa has also worked on an interdisciplinary chronic pain program and volunteered as a physiotherapist in Kenya for 4 years and Egypt for 3 years.
Vanessa believes staying active during recovery of all types of injuries is key. Her goal is to optimize rehabilitation for her patients and to provide them with a foundation for injury prevention. With a focus on client education, Vanessa uses a combination of manual therapy, acupuncture, soft tissue techniques, yoga and taping in her treatment plan. With the client, Vanessa develops patient specific exercises to address muscle imbalances and motor pattern dysfunction with the goal of maximizing function and mobility.
Vanessa has always been an active member of the physiotherapy community and is committed to her profession and life-long learning. She has served as Chair of the National Capital Unit Orthopaedic Division and has attended numerous national and international physiotherapy conferences. She believes communicating with physiotherapists, personal trainers and other health care professionals from a variety of practice settings and countries allows for a more well-rounded approach to treatment.
Vanessa has taken a variety of postgraduate training to give her a multitude of ideas to draw from when assessing and treating clients:
- She has been practicing acupuncture since 2001 and successfully completed the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute’s (AFCI) certification exams in 2006.
- In manual therapy she has successfully completed her Level 3 upper and lower quadrant courses and exams.
- She has taken specialized courses in Kinetic Control and Dynamic Stablization of the Cervical and Lumbar spine, Myofascial Release of the Thoracic and Pelvic Outlet, Sahrman Movement Impairment and Muscle Imbalance and Kinesiotaping.
- Also, after practicing yoga herself for over 20 years and successfully incorporating yoga type exercises into her patient’s rehab programs she has recently become certified as a yoga instructor and has been teaching small group yoga classes as well as designing one on one yoga programs for clients with a variety of needs.
In her spare time, Vanessa enjoys yoga, walking her dog and travelling with her husband and three children. She is also involved with helping out with any injuries that arise on her two son’s competitive basketball teams and keeping up with her very active little girl.
Vanessa is very excited to join the South Delta Physiotherapy team.
