Biography

I am an experienced and still very passionate physiotherapist. I continue to learn and upgrade my skills to provide the best care to my patients. I am a great listener and approach each person with an open mind. I am always there to help you feel better, get stronger and stay active for life.

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

I graduated in 1990 from the Academy of Physical Education in Warsaw, Poland with a Master's degree in Motor Rehabilitation. A year later, I received my license to practice in Canada and have been working at Bentall Physiotherapy Clinic ever since. My fascination with the profession comes from a longstanding interest in movement and its powerful properties, as well as, natural strengths of the human body to heal, if directed properly.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

Each patient receives extensive hand-on treatment using a variety of manual techniques like mobilization and muscle energy techniques. I see a great value in providing an individualized exercise program to my patients, which empowers them to take charge of their health and promotes an active lifestyle. Furthermore, I emphasize patient education that identifies faulty habits and weaknesses and necessary changes needed to restore balance and strength.

What are you proud of in your practice?

My own experience with scoliosis from the teenage years gave me early exposure to wonders that physiotherapy is capable of and made me very passionate about posture. From prevention and early intervention, before structural changes have taken place, to solving a mechanical "puzzle" of a painful knee in a marathon runner, I will take you step by step to restore your equilibrium. I believe in constant advancing my therapeutic skills by attending numerous post graduate studies, as well as learning from my patients.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I am very passionate about treating each patient as a whole, not an injury or localized problem. I like challenges that a complex impairment brings on, when finding answers to longstanding problem is like putting the puzzle pieces together to get the clear picture. I love patients who are engaged in this process and when we are on this journey together.
