“I believe becoming an expert in physiotherapy requires more than becoming an expert in function and mobility. It also requires expertise in communication, collaboration, management, advocating, ongoing learning, and professionalism. Each client is unique and deserves an individualized approach to their care.”
Lynn graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy from the Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri USA in 1988. She began practicing physiotherapy in Alberta in 2013. Lynn has been a member of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association since 2013.
Lynn’s physiotherapy practice utilizes manual therapy, exercise prescription to correct and resolve muscle imbalances that lead to musculoskeletal injury and impairment, and other modalities. Her goal with each patient is to educate them on their condition and causative factors in order to empower them to take an active role in their rehabilitation process. She firmly believes that an active treatment plan is the key to a successful recovery.
To improve the quality of her care, Lynn has pursued a wide range of continuing education courses to advance her knowledge and clinical skills in orthopaedics, manual therapy, acupuncture, exercise prescription, postural correction and realignment, the treatment of various musculoskeletal impairments, therapeutic yoga, and persistent pain care
“Pain self-management should not be the last treatment resort for people in pain. Pain is one of the most common reasons physiotherapists see individuals in the clinic. By truly listening to these individuals, we can learn much about the lived experience of pain. With effective communication, education and a collaborative approach, we can empower them in their recovery from acute and persistent pain conditions.”
To maintain her own mind and body wellness, Lynn currently practices and teaches yoga. She is no stranger to competitive sports. She has trained and competed in fitness and long-distance running events, including 2 marathons between 1990-1995. She has been actively practicing various styles of yoga since 1996. She is a wife and mother of 2 children and enjoys participating in outdoor recreation, such as skiing, hiking, golfing, and mountain biking, with her family.
