She has been practicing for almost 5 years now in both the public and private setting with focuses on manual therapy, tailored exercise programs with a focus on patient education. She concentrates on the client’s main complaint, but also works hard to find the driver of their pain. Her approach is hands on thereby correcting the dysfunction while allowing clients to maintain the gains achieved with an individualized exercise program. Throughout the client’s treatment plan Catherine continues to assess and re-assess and modify treatments and exercises as warranted.
After starting her career in physiotherapy, Catherine noticed a demand for vestibular rehabilitation. She began her training in 2014 and has since has been helping clients manage their vertigo assisting them to get back on their feet.
