A graduate of the physiotherapy program from the University of Saskatchewan in 2006, Melissa has a special interest in to the area of Women’s Health. It was her journey through pregnancy and postpartum recovery where she discovered the lack of awareness towards the pelvic floor, a socially “taboo” area of the body and the benefits physiotherapy can provide.
Melissa believes this region of our bodies leads to many other physical injuries which affect our health and that there is a high percentage of people who experience issues with their pelvic floor. We need to overcome the embarrassment associated with it and treat it like any other area in the body. Pelvic health issues can affect anyone from athletes to post partum mothers to active seniors.
