Book with Ashley
I am an Ottawa native who graduated with a Master’s degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Toronto after completing my undergraduate degree in Human Kinetics at the University of Ottawa. I have over 10 years of experience in practice, where I have enhanced my treatment skills as well as my understanding and management of various clinical conditions. My rehabilitation philosophy is based on a “hands on” manual therapy approach, which is supplemented by a home exercise program to target key muscle groups, taping techniques, acupuncture/dry needling and modalities for pain, inflammation and muscle activation. I work with you to help you achieve your personal goals for health, function, and activity. I have considerable experience treating a wide range of patient demographics from children to geriatrics. My patients include individuals from non-sport backgrounds as well as high level athletes.
My main objectives as your physiotherapist are to help you return to your pre-injury level of functioning, to prevent future injuries from occurring, and to ultimately improve your overall quality of life and independence. I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree from SUNY Potsdam, where I played NCAA ice hockey. I then received my Master’s in Physiotherapy at McMaster University. I use a variety of assessment skills to create a unique treatment plan that is tailored specifically to meet your individual needs and goals. My treatments may include hands on manual therapy and mobilizations, exercise prescription, functional dry needling, modalities, and education to help you understand the root causes of “your” pain and dysfunction.
My goal as your chiropractor is not only to help ease your pain, but to guide you on the steps you can take to improve your overall physical health and quality of life. My treatments may consist of any or a combination of chiropractic manipulation of the spine and extremities, strengthening exercises, acupuncture and dry needling, modalities, taping and soft tissue therapies such as myofascial release. I grew up in Ottawa, received my Bachelor of Science in Human Kinetics from the University of Ottawa and then completed my Doctorate of Chiropractic at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto. I have spent 10 years enhancing my clinical skills in manual, athletic and rehabilitative therapy. I have over 20 years experience in the health and fitness community where I have worked with individuals with a non-sport background, as well as athletes at the varsity, national and professional levels
