Our team members have a particular interest in neuromuscular and orthopedic rehabilitation.
Neurological conditions we treat include stroke and TIAs, Parkinson’s disease, traumatic or acquired brain injury, MS and ALS. We also treat balance and dizziness disorders and concussions, in addition to pediatric conditions such as developmental delay, genetic disorders, down syndrome and cerebral palsy.
Orthopedic conditions we treat include rehabilitation of hip and knee replacements, fractures, sprains, tendon and ligament repairs, chronic pain, arthritis, back pain, repetitive strain injuries, and congenital muscular torticollis and plagiocephaly for babies.
Rehabilitation assistants carry out treatment plans designed by physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech-language pathologists. They work directly with clients to assist them in developing, supporting or improving psychosocial, physical, cognitive and communication skills.
As University-educated health professionals, Kinesiologists apply exercise and movement science to promote health and wellbeing; prevent, manage and rehabilitate injuries; treat illness and chronic disease; restore function, and optimize human performance in the workplace, clinical settings, sport and fitness. Kinesiologists are the only human movement specialists that use science and research to offer movement as medicine to any person with a health or fitness goal, who want a hands-on, personalized approach.
Katie graduated from Illinois State University with a B.S. in 2010 after a long career as an NCAA Division I Soccer Player. Her interest in athletics, human performance and nutrition lead her to a career in the physiotherapy and sports performance world. Her most recent experience involves working with elite-level athletes and TBi/concussion patients as a Performance Vision Therapist at Fortius Sport and Health.
When she’s not managing the day-to-day operations of the clinic, Katie enjoys exploring the outdoors with her two pups, sitting down to read a good book, woodworking, and eating all the tacos & margaritas she possibly can.
