Renée graduated from the University of Alberta in 1997, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Therapy with Distinction. She completed her Intermediate Manual Therapy exam (Part A) in 2000, was fortunate enough to train directly with Dr. Chan Gunn, the founder of Gunn IMS, to obtain her certification in Intramuscular Stimulation in 2000, and became a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT) in 2002.
In addition to these post-graduation certifications, Renée has also taken a wide variety of continuing education courses to complement her skill set and build her vast knowledge base. Having recently taken the Advanced Mastering the Shoulder course, she is enjoying incorporating this refined evidence-based assessment and treatment approach for clients suffering from shoulder pain due to arthritis, tendonitis, rotator cuff injuries, bursitis and much more. Renée is also now implementing new assessment techniques and exercise protocols as they pertain to hip pain, after completing the Preserving the Active Hip - New Advances in Hip Rehabilitation course earlier this year.
Over the course of her 20+ year career, Renée has worked extensively with patients suffering from neck and back pain, sporting injuries and much more. She also has a wealth of experience treating clients undergoing prolotherapy as well as other interventional treatments such as facet blocks.
Renée enjoys treating a diverse clientele using a balanced approach, incorporating manual therapy, IMS, exercise and education, specifically tailored to the individual needs of each person. She is a highly dedicated, compassionate and skilled therapist who is constantly striving to improve the overall well-being of her patients.
