Welcome Elizabeth De Jong Westman MScPT!!!
Elizabeth will be joining the team at Inner Strength PHYSIOTHERAPY at the end of November. Elizabeth will be at the clinic meeting clients Tuesday/Thursday the week of Nov 17-21 and will be starting to treat clients the week of Nov 24-28.
Elizabeth graduated from the University of Western Ontario with a Masters of Physical Therapy degree, and prior to this, she attended the University of British Columbia where she completed a Bachelors of Human Kinetics degree. Elizabeth has also studied at Otago University in Dunedin, New Zealand where she focused on clinical exercise prescription and advanced exercise physiology.
Elizabeth is an outdoors enthusiast, avid runner, former professional dancer, a current yoga teacher and yoga student. And until recently, she also has been a regular CrossFit fanatic. It is through all of these experiences that Elizabeth has had her own fair share of injuries. During sessions with her own physiotherapist; as well as cursing away doing the prescribed home exercises. Elizabeth developed an acute awareness of what works for her, and has come to recognize that what works for one person doesn’t always work for someone else. Elizabeth is dedicated to developing a treatment strategy and exercise regime that is unique to each individual and injury.
Elizabeth’s professional experience includes private physiotherapy clinics, hospitals, and neurological rehabilitation centres. Through this experience she has developed a keen sense for treating both acute and chronic injuries in order to get her client back to their normal life and the activities they enjoy. With a variety of tips and tricks up her sleeve from manual therapy, Mackenzie techniques, functional movement analysis and soft tissue releases Elizabeth is eager to help get people back to their highest level of function. Above all else, Elizabeth believes in treating the cause of the problem and not simply finding a band-aid solution that will help only for a short period of time.
Elizabeth is registered with the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario and a member of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA) and the Orthopaedic Division of the CPA. Elizabeth is eager to pursue further accreditations and continuing education, specifically in manual and manipulative therapy and acupuncture. Currently she holds a Level 1 certificate for Advanced Orthopaedic Manual and Manipulative Physiotherapy and hopes to continue through the orthopaedic levels.
Elizabeth looks forward to working with you to help you recover from injury and achieve your personal goals.
