My name is Sarah and I am thrilled to offer pelvic floor physiotherapy at Movin’ Mountains. It is an area that is so often overlooked and can have such a significant impact on one’s quality of life. After 10 years of clinical practice and having had a son myself, I have come to appreciate even more the integral role that the pelvic floor and a strong responsive core play in a healthy, active body. I am excited to share my knowledge of the pelvic floor and how to treat conditions ranging from incontinence, prolapse, diastasis rectus, pelvic pain and others. It is key to recognize that the interplay of small, targeted changes can result in large functional gains.
I graduated honours with distinction in Biology from the University of Victoria in 2003 and then graduated from the University of British Columbia in 2006 with a Master of Physical Therapy. Since graduation I have pursued post-graduate courses in manual therapy, the vestibular system and vertigo, the shoulder, core stability and the pelvic floor, and bike fitting for road cyclists, triathletes and mountain bikers.
I have clinical experience in the private practice setting treating a multitude of conditions and a year working on the medical floor and ICU at Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital. I have also been a preceptor for physiotherapy students from UBC. I have a strong emphasis placed on manual therapy, exercise prescription and education while providing patient centred treatment programs.
A bit about me: In my free time I enjoy swimming, cycling and skiing. I also loves the time spent with my husband and son in the outdoors, be it paddling, hiking, camping or sailing.
What does my quote mean? My quote is derived from a quote by Pablo Picasso which states: “Action is the foundational key to all success.” I find this quote to be empowering. To me it illustrates that even a small action can overcome the inertia and fear of trying to achieve a larger goal. The most important thing is to act.
