  • UJP - Rachel

    As an avid runner and soccer player Rachel grew up knowing the importance of an effective rehabilitation. It is these experiences that gave Rachel the desire to become a physiotherapist from a young age. Since becoming a physiotherapist Rachel has taken many post graduate courses including Building the Ultimate Back, Functional Stability Training for the core, Cervical Headaches, Soft Tissue Release and multiple shoulder courses. She enjoys treating clients with a variety of spinal and peripheral injuries and especially those with shoulder and low back pain. Her philosophy is to involve the client in their own rehabilitation as much as possible through education and exercise, which compliments her use of manual therapy and soft tissue techniques to help reduce pain and restore function as quick as possible. Rachel graduated with a Masters degree in Physiotherapy at Queen’s University in 2010 and prior to that with a degree in Kinesiology at Redeemer University College in 2007. Rachel is registered with the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario and is a member of the Ontario and Canadian Physiotherapy Associations. In her spare time, Rachel enjoys camping, cooking, and spending time with her husband and two young children.
