Kristina’s path to physiotherapy began when she happened to take a course in Sports Medicine while finishing her undergraduate degree in Human Biology at the University of Toronto. After a year of volunteering in a variety of physiotherapy settings, she went on to obtain her Masters of Science in Physical Therapy at Queen’s University in Kingston. While there, she discovered the benefits of meditation and the importance of a balanced lifestyle.
Kristina strives to stay current and continually improve her skills with continuing education courses, including Manual Therapy (she has currently completed her Level III) and Acupuncture levels I and II through AFCI. She is always on the lookout for new courses that will be beneficial in her practice and to her clients. Most recently she has completed several pediatrics courses for motor delays in the first year of life. She has also completed post-graduate education in concussion management, TMJ dysfunction, and running injuries. She is currently finishing training in Vestibular Rehabiliation.
Kristina is thrilled to be part of the team at Oakville’s Palermo Plus Physiotherapy & Wellness and helping clients achieve their goals and return to their lives stronger and healthier. She loves seeing clients progress and focuses her treatment on three key ingredients: hands-on manual therapy techniques to improve joint and tissue mobility, individualized exercise programs to help each person feel stronger and better, and an emphasis on client education in order to actively engage clients in their treatment and promote health and wellbeing.
In her practice, Kristina treats a variety of orthopaedic conditions from neck to low back strains and sprains, shoulder and knee injuries and rehabilitation, arthritis, etc. She has a special interest in working with runners. She also has experience with Post Mastectomy clients.
Oakville Physiotherapist Kristina has continued to expand her practice and and offer more services. She enjoys working with a paediatric population including infants with torticollis and delayed gross motor skills, to young athletes with sports injuries and post fracture care. Helping children and youth return to activities of enjoyment such as dance and soccer is very rewarding!
In her spare time, Kristina loves playing tennis, running (and planning for a half marathon!), hiking, kickboxing, learning new languages, and reading a good book.
