Meet our Oakville Physiotherapy and Wellness team! Last week we announced a new team member; Yoga Therapist Jennifer. Claire has been a member of our Oakville team since Spring 2015.
Claire’s interest in Physiotherapy and sports medicine sparked when she experienced the benefits of Physio Treatment first-hand as a young athlete. Claire was a competitive cross
country skiier and soccer player, and competed at a national level in biathlon. She developed a strong interest in sports medicine and health, which motivated her to pursue a career as a Physiotherapist in Oakville. Claire completed her undergraduate degree in Kinesiology at the University of Calgary and later went on to work as a Kinesiologist in a Physiotherapy Clinic. Claire graduated from Queen’s University with a Masters of Science in Physical Therapy, where she was awarded the Queen’s PT Clinic Award in Ambulatory Care upon graduation.
Claire is working towards her Diploma of Advanced Orthopaedic Manual and Manipulative Physiotherapy and has successfully completed level II. She has taken a number of continuing education courses, including acupuncture through the AFCI, soft tissue release and Mulligan with Movement mobilizations. She also recently attended a seminar discussing Concussion management.
Claire has taken a special interest in treating a variety of conditions including:
- Bell’s Palsy
- Post Mastectomy Patients
- Sports Injuries (eg tennis elbow, muscle strains etc)
- Post Surgical Patients (total knee replacement, rotator cuff repair etc.)
During Physiotherapy treatment sessions Claire uses a variety of manual therapy techniques, acupuncture, and individualized exercise prescription to promote and engage active participation. Claire believes that education is a very powerful tool and can be the necessary ingredient to engage patients in their own health and the achievement of their goals. She is excited to work in Palermo’s Oakville Physiotherapy and Wellness Clinic providing Physio to those in Oakville, Burlington and Milton.
In her spare time, Claire enjoys playing soccer, ultimate frisbee, running and exploring the outdoors.
