Biography

Louise graduated with a first class honours degree in Physiotherapy from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, and has gained orthopaedic experience in both hospital and private settings. She is a member of the College of Physical Therapists of British Columbia, as well as the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists. Louise’s treatments are based on a whole-body evaluation to identify the underlying cause of pain and movement pattern restrictions. She incorporates manual therapy, patient education and exercise prescription into treatment sessions to help patients reach their goals.

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

I am committed to working one-on-one with people to identify their individual needs and challenges. I understand that there is no 'one size fits all' and I believe that a specific and personalised rehabilitation plan should be formulated based on the identified needs and goals of a person.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

I usually focus on education, manual therapy, and exercise prescription. 1. Education provides the individual with the knowledge and understanding surrounding their condition. 2. Manual therapy has been shown to play an important role in reducing the pain that is associated with injuries. 3. Exercise and active rehabilitation helps with the recovery process and with preventing injury re-occurrence.

What are you proud of in your practice?

Improving the quality of a person's life by helping to reduce pain and maximise function.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I enjoy treating a variety of cases, but I have particular interest in orthopaedics.
