After being trained in two cooperative health care professions, Lindsey feels confident in her ability to assess and intervene appropriately to best provide care for her clients. Some of the conditions Lindsey has experience treating are joint replacement/repairs, frozen shoulder, neck pain, nerve pain, shoulder dislocations/instabilities, sciatic pain, sports injuries, pregnancy-related discomfort, chronic headaches, nerve impingement, whiplash, knee pain and instability, osteoarthritis, rotator cuff pain, and chronic low back pain. Among other things, Lindsey is also able to design fitness programs for people looking to add exercise into their lifestyle. Completing her Pre and Postnatal Fitness Specialist course has helped her expand her program designing to include pregnant women, so they can remain safely active throughout their pregnancy. Both Physiotherapy and Massage Therapy have appropriate applications within health care, and Lindsey feels fortunate that she is able to provide both.
Physiotherapy restores and maintains a patient’s mobility, function and well-being. A thorough assessment of her patient’s symptoms allows Lindsey to make accurate diagnoses of her patient’s conditions. Through a client-direct approach, Lindsey designs treatment plans that effectively restores optimal function, while minimizing or eliminating pain. These treatment plans may include supervised strengthening, balance training, postural re-education, stretches, dry needling (intramuscular stimulation), massage, and a home exercise program.
Massage Therapy is an excellent resource for correcting tight muscles through direct pressure, as well as improving circulation to the area to help bring nutrients to muscles that are tired and sore. Lindsey tends to use a more firm pressure when working with clients to release trigger points and alleviate tension. She also employs myofascial release, joint mobilisation and neuromuscular therapy to achieve her client’s goals.
Lindsey was very grateful to be welcomed back to KAH and is excited to be able to continue building on her ability to assist people in reaching their healthcare goals. She suggests new clients book an initial Physiotherapy appointment, as it gives her the best opportunity to use all of her available skills to help you achieve your goals. Lindsey is dual registered as a Physiotherapist and Registered Massage Therapist, and is currently taking new clients.
