Vivian graduated from Queens University with the Bachelors of Science in Physiotherapy in 2006. She also holds a Bachelors of Physical Health and Education from the University of Toronto. She’s had over 10 years of experience working in the rehabilitation environment as a kinesiologist and physiotherapist. She is a certified Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy ( McKenzie) provider. The McKenzie theory is a well-researched, exercise based approach of assessment, diagnosis and treatment that uses a comprehensive and clinically reasoned evaluation. Its treatment principles promote the body’s potential to repair itself and do not involve the use of medication, heat, cold, ultrasound, needles, or surgery. McKenzie allows patients to learn the principles and empowers them to be in control of their own symptom management. She has worked in a variety of clinical settings e.g. hospital, community based and outpatient clinics, which contributes to her understanding of the continuity of care. Her philosophy is a combination of manual therapy, exercise and patient education to assist clients to regain their independence, optimal function and highest quality of life. She is an exercise enthusiast, especially Running and Yoga. She is fascinated with the human body and loves to investigate the movements and processes involved with keeping it healthy! She’s a lifelong learner and likes to participate in continuing education courses.
