WHY RAMARA PHYSIOTHERAPY?
My goal at Ramara Physiotherapy is to restore your function, reduce your pain and ensure your rehabilitation is effective, efficient and stress-free, all while keeping treatment numbers and home exercises low.
Since becoming a physiotherapist after finishing my degrees in 2013 I have been practicing in a private practice setting, and I quickly found myself dissatisfied with modality-based, passive care. I found the McKenzie MDT system in 2015 and my practice changed dramatically; I was able to give my patients considerably better results in a fraction of the time, and the autonomy to help themselves.
The McKenzie Method is a system of musculoskeletal care that focuses on patient empowerment and self-treatment by focusing on what the patient needs to do to get better, rather than what passive treatments the practitioner decides to perform. I became one of the few credentialed McKenzie MDT clinicians north of the GTA in 2018 and have never looked back. More recently in 2021 I attained my Outcomes Accountable Clinician certification with IMC in Tallahassee, Florida. This means appointment outcome measures are tracked and challenging cases are presented weekly at Grand Rounds with a group of advanced practitioners in North America.
I provide one-on-one therapy only, no assistants or modalities used. Each treatment includes ongoing reassessment and education, and my current average is 5 visits per episode of care, rather than 10-24 visits often seen with standard physiotherapy.
What can you expect?
You will have one of three outcomes:
1) Your problem is 100% resolved.
2) You are on your way to being 100% resolved using one or two simple home exercises
3) Your area of pain is not responding and I help you with next steps by referring you to the appropriate professional.
