Physiotherapy, Clinical Yoga & Pilates, Scoliosis Programs and Acupuncture Vancouver & Port Moody, BC

Many people go through a stage in their life where their physical functioning is below par. Their quality of life suffers, sometimes self-esteem & people often have associated pain that disrupts work, relationships, sleep - in fact their whole life. Stephanie can help to get you back on form at a pace to suit your lifestyle in Vancouver or Port Moody.

 

Stephanie's first step is to carry out a one-to-one assessment - a period during which you both get to know each other and she can ask questions about the problem that brings you to seek assistance with your physical fitness or mobility - was it a car accident, a fall, a sports injury, a gradual deterioration or the onset of pain during everyday activity?

 

Stephanie also usually spends some time manipulating the affected area & surrounding ones to discover more about your physical condition so she can design a treatment plan you feel comfortable with and that will rebalance your body to improve its functioning. Stephanie has proven herself particularly effective by combining her STOTT Pilates and Yoga training with Physiotherapy - all of which she has added to many years of competitive (and medal winning) sports experience at an International level with the Canadian Olympic Team. If you need help in Vancouver or Port Moody, contact Stephanie.

Physiotherapy Programs

 

Physiotherapy Sessions - Port Moody & Vancouver BC

Physiotherapy Treatment Approach

 

You will get the undivided attention of Stephanie for the entire duration of your Physiotherapy treatment session. You can choose to book either a 30 or 60- minute appointment. This focused, one-to-one approach facilitates the development of a more comprehensive treatment plan to help recover from injury and allows for more productive treatment sessions with more time for patient education, manual techniques, and supervised exercise to help prevent recurring injuries.

 

Stephanie's aim is to identify and correct the dysfunctional movement patterns that are often at the root of pain and injury. This facilitates a more complete rehab process, and empowers the patient with the knowledge of what to do to prevent, minimize, or self-manage re-occurrences.

 

We offer a qualified Physiotherapist intervention across the spectrum of wellness and function — from preventative screenings to injury rehabilitation, to peak sports performance — and will create an individualized physiotherapy plan to help you reach your goals.

 

At  our locations in Port Moody Stephanie can offer a number of different physiotherapy programs including Cryo-Therapy, Aquatic Therapy and Shockwave Therapy. Stephanie can suggest and tailor a program that best fits your physiotherapy needs whether you require post-operative rehab, suffer from acute or chronic injuries or are looking for a low impact, muscle strengthening program.

Clinical Pilates & Yoga

 

Yoga & Pilate Sessions - Port Moody & Vancouver BC

Clinical Yoga & Pilates Treatment Approach

 

Are you recovering from an injury and looking for a focused and controlled way to rehab before returning to your regular activities? Do you want to recommence a group fitness program but require some personalized guidance and assistance to become more connected with your own body first? Perhaps after an injury you need some reassurance that you are ready for more extensive exercise activities? Stephanie can help you with one-on-one individualized sessions using Clinical Pilates.

 

STOTT Pilates® exercises were designed in collaborations with a team of Physical Therapists, Sports Medicine and Exercises Professionals to incorporate modern exercise principles, and apply current practices in biomechanics, rehabilitation and athletic performance enhancement to provide an approach that helps to restore the natural curves of the spine and rebalance the muscles around the joints.

 

Using Pilates equipment such as the Reformer, Trapezius Table/ Cadillac and chair, more emphasis will be placed on pelvic and scapular stabilization, and a more integrated approach to improve motor control. Together we will use the basic principles to design a program specific to your individual needs, whether it be more sport-specific training or improving activities of daily living and allow you to return to the outdoor activities you love in this city.

Scoliosis Program

 

Scoliosis Specific Exercise Approach - Port Moody & Vancouver BC

Scoliosis Treatment Approach

 

Have you or your child been diagnosed with Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis?  Are you interested in learning more about conservative management of this spinal disorder? There are seven different schools that educate physiotherapist on scoliosis specific exercise. Stephanie has been trained by Beth Janssen; who brought the Barcelona Schroth Method to the United States. She started the first Barcelona Scoliosis Physical Therapy School in Wisconsin but travels all over the USA educating PT’s on conservative management of Scoliosis.

 

Originally from Germany, Katerina Schroth developed the 3D treatment plan for Scoliosis in the 1920s. The concepts and principles for treatment have evolved over the years but are based on sensorimotor and kinaesthetic principles with the main objective to facilitate corrections of the altered posture, and teach the patient to maintain the corrected posture in their activities of daily living.

 

The goals of Physiotherapy Scoliosis Specific Exercise (PSSE) are to help minimize curve progression, improve respiration, decrease functional limitations, prevent or treat spinal pain, prevent surgery, and improve general health and activities of daily living.

Acupuncture Programs

 

Acupuncture Treatments - Port Moody & Vancouver BC

Acupuncture Treatment Approach

 

Classical Acupuncture is a system to restore balance, alleviate pain, and eliminate other symptoms and based on a traditional Chinese medicine diagnosis. As a Physiotherapist, Stephanie was trained to use Anatomical Acupuncture, which takes traditional points and chooses locations based on anatomical and physiological relations to the problem being treated. The Anatomical approach is also commonly known to treat the autonomic nervous system and balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system to ultimately normalize function.

 

Stephanie received her training through the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute. This modality can be used before manual physiotherapy to allow for more ease of mobilization and soft tissue release as well as help with longer lasting results following treatment. In combination with other treatments, acupuncture can assist in decreasing pain improving energy and decreasing stress.
