Proven and Professional


The Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) The SFMA is a clinical assessment for those who experience pain. It is a movement based diagnostic system which systematically finds the cause of pain - not just the source - by logically breaking down dysfunctional movement patterns in a structured, repeatable assessment. The SFMA begins by thoroughly observing and assessing movement patterns throughout the entire body, including movements of the neck, arms/shoulders, forward bend, backward bend, trunk rotation, single leg balance, and a deep squat.


Each of these movements is classified as either functional or dysfunctional and painful or non-painful. The results of the assessment are used to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses the specific movement dysfunctions identified.

DNS commonly refers to Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization, a physiotherapy treatment approach that focuses on correcting the patterns of muscle activation and motor control in the body. DNS is based on the principles of developmental kinesiology and involves a series of exercises and positions designed to improve movement patterns and neuromuscular control. DNS can help patients overcome various musculoskeletal dysfunctions and improve overall movement quality, balance, and coordination.



TPI (Titleist Performance Institute) assessment is a physical screening process designed to identify physical limitations that may contribute to a golfer's swing faults and/or injury risk. The TPI assessment is used by golf professionals, fitness professionals, and medical professionals to help golfers improve their performance and reduce their risk of injury.


Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive medical treatment that uses high-energy acoustic waves to treat various musculoskeletal conditions. The therapy is commonly used for conditions such as plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, jumpers knee, and more. Shockwave therapy works by increasing blood flow to the affected area, increasing metabolic activity, and stimulating the body's healing response. It is considered an effective alternative to surgery or medication and is generally safe when administered by a trained healthcare professional.


Functional Dry Needling (FDN) involves inserting a tiny sterile needle in a muscle or muscles in order to release shortened bands of muscle and decrease trigger point activity. This can help resolve pain and muscle tension, and will promote healing. This is not traditional Chinese Acupuncture, but is instead a medical treatment that relies on a medical diagnosis to be effective. Your physical therapist has met the requirement for competency in Functional Dry Needling and is a Certified Dry Needling Practitioner.


Pelvic Health is a specialized field of physiotherapy. I can assess and treat various conditions that often involve the pelvis and pelvic floor muscles. The pelvic floor is the group of muscles extending from the front of the pelvis to the coccyx at the back of your body. They are responsible for supporting the low back, hip joints, and pelvic organs (bladder, uterus, and rectum). They play an important role in bladder and bowel function, sexual function, as well as pre and post-natal health.


Pelvic floor physiotherapy has demonstrated effectiveness in the treatment of many conditions, such as:

   •    Urinary incontinence

   •    Difficulty urinating

   •    Bowel incontinence

   •    Constipation

   •    Pelvic organ prolapse including the bladder, uterus, and rectum

   •    Pelvic pain disorders often diagnose by vaginismus, vulvodynia, dyspareunia

   •    Pre-natal & postpartum pelvic pain or care/ prevention

   •    Prostate problems and erectile dysfunctions

   •    Gender affirming surgeries, back surgeries, cancer treatments
