Chelsea was first introduced to, and fell in love with, physiotherapy as a competitive athlete, sustaining and recovering from various sports related injuries. Her passion for the profession has been further ignited during her own diagnosis and journey through a chronic pain condition, in which she learned firsthand how empowering it can be to have the right team of practitioners helping you achieve your goals.
After completing her Masters of Physical Therapy at the University of Toronto in 2016, Chelsea has taken courses in manual therapy, exercise therapy, chronic pain, and Clinical Pilates. Chelsea’s practice aims to help all individuals through all stages of their rehabilitation journey. Using pilates equipment and principles as a complement to physiotherapy sessions, Chelsea enjoys showing individuals they can achieve new ranges of motion, improve muscle activation and strength, improve core control, and learn about their own body’s alignment so they can get back to what they love to do in their lives.
Along with her passion for helping those with chronic pain and complex injuries, Chelsea also has a special interest in working with athletes as they work through, or work to prevent, athletic injuries. Before her physiotherapy degree, Chelsea attended Simon Fraser University where she was captain of the Women’s Varsity Volleyball team. With an in depth knowledge of the sport, she holds a special place in her heart for volleyball players and other athletes.
