Julie is passionate about empowering patients to move their bodies efficiently in order to return to the activities they enjoy.

Julie understands the love for human movement (and the highs and lows of recovering from injury), and enjoys participating in different activities such as running, parkour, martial arts, windsurfing, kayaking, skiing, cycling, swimming, hiking and backpacking.
 

If you are wanting to understand the origin of your injuries, and be an ACTIVE participant in your treatment planning and physiotherapy rehab, then working with Julie could be a good fit for you.

Julie will get creative with you to tailor your physiotherapy treatment plan and exercises to your goals and specific activities, whether it be gardening, sports, or workplace tasks.

CLINICAL TECHNIQUE: FUNCTIONAL NEUROLOGY

Julie’s main practice tool is using functional neurology, including a technique called Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex (P-DTR).

In the simplest way, functional neurology works on helping to "reset" the "muscle reflexes" that turn on to protect you after an injury.

Once the muscle reflexes can be normalized, and the brain understands that the injury is no longer happening, our muscles and tissues can RELAX, resulting in less tightness, joint compression, and pain.

It then becomes easier to prescribe exercises and stretches to help work towards your movement and activity goals.

 

Julie has received her Advanced Level Certification in P-DTR. 

If this physiotherapy approach sounds like something you want to dive into, please call us to book a phone consultation with Julie at 604-428-1399.
