Andrea obtained her Masters in Physical Therapy from the University of Toronto in 2009. Andrea believes that treatment should first and foremost thoroughly address patient concerns and goals. Andrea firmly believes in treating the root cause of the problem (not just the symptoms), and she always takes the time to ensure her patients understand their injury to help prevent recurrence.
Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
My passion for physiotherapy comes from a background in Gymnastics. I love to work with the individual and help them get back to their daily functional activities. Gaining a rapport and trust with the client really helps focus on their treatment and exercises outside of the clinic to reach their goals. It gives me gratitude to help others on a day to day basis.
What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?
She practices with an evidence-based approach that involves comprehensive assessment, hands-on treatment, exercise prescription, patient education and other modalities to alleviate pain and improve function. Her number one objective is to deliver exceptional care and help her patients achieve optimal outcomes that enhance their quality of life.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
Having had the opportunity to work in many rehabilitative settings from acute to chronic care in inpatient and outpatients facilities, Andrea has experience working with a variety of populations. These include but are not limited to neck and back pain, Moto Vehicle Accident (MVA) injuries, workplace injuries (WSIB), sports injuries, postural dysfunction, arthritic conditions, post-operative orthopaedics (e.g., full knee and total hip replacements), traumatic orthopaedics (e.g., fractures), as well as repetitive strain injuries.
