Quite simply, Nadine believes that being a physical therapist is a tool towards building resilient bodies and therefor stronger communities. She fundamentally believes we are meant to move dynamically and challenge our bodies, especially when pain and injury arise. The foundation to her clinical practice is rehabilitative science, education and mindful movement, manual therapy and IMS are adjuncts. Nadine strives to optimize healing and performance for all of her patients by centering her practice around patient empowerment; helping patients to trust the body’s amazing restorative capacity as she has learned through her personal journey with a back injury.
Nadine plans to pursue further education in orthopaedic manual therapy, exercise prescription, pilates and cancer rehabilitation. In addition to a musculoskeletal focus, Nadine is growing a cancer rehabilitation caseload by offering customized exercise programs and treatment to cancer patients. Most importantly, Nadine is committed to lifelong learning and an ongoing reflective practice as seen in her monthly blogging ritual.
To stay fit, Nadine trains regularly with kettle bells and treks up mother nature’s stair-climbers. To keep it light, she loves outdoor play; snowboarding and kite-surfing mainly.
