Biography

Simone graduated from McGill University in 2016 with a Master of Science, Applied, in Physical Therapy after graduating from McMaster University in 2014 with an Honours Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology. Her love for living an active lifestyle, including running and swimming, led to her interest in a career in physiotherapy.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

I believe that an injury or pain has both physical and psychological aspects, and it is important to address both components in the rehab process. This may include techniques to minimize stress or rethinking how you interpret your injury. It is also important to ensure the exercises I give in a home exercise program for a patient are realistic and fit into the patient’s daily life.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

Exercise prescription, soft tissue release and joint mobilization. I believe that a combination of hands on therapy as well as exercises leads to the most success when recovering from pain or injury.

What are you proud of in your practice?

I am most proud of how comfortable my patients are with me. I believe it is important for a patient to feel safe sharing all the details of their pain and injury, as this leads to a more effective treatment.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I enjoy treating a wide variety of cases, but especially cases that involve weakness at the hips as the culprit. You might be surprised by the effect weak hips can have on your whole body. It is satisfying when these patients notice a difference fairly quickly and have a fast return to their activities of daily life.

    Reviewed on January 29th, 2018  •  Verified patient
    Simone was very creative when figuring out what was causing my injury and was able to help relieve my pain significantly from just one session. She's also very honest about what she feels comfortable in recommending to help with an injury which speaks to her integrity as a physiotherapist. I found her great to talk to and she's very welcoming.
