Joanne Leung graduated from the University of Waterloo with a Bachelor degree of Honours Biomedical Sciences with a minor in Biology. She then graduated from Western University with a Master of Science degree in Physical Therapy.
Having worked in acute care, rehab, and clinic settings, Joanne has gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in assessing and treating various musculoskeletal problems. These orthopaedic conditions include: post-surgical conditions (total hip and knee replacements, ligamentous and meniscal repairs, rotator cuff stabilization, etc.), fractures, chronic tendon injuries, low back and neck pain, osteoarthritis, frozen shoulder, and sprains and strains from sport and workplace injuries.
Having experienced injuries of her own as an athlete, Joanne understands the importance of helping people get back to what they love without fear of re-injury. As a physiotherapist, Joanne believes in educating patients about their condition and providing patients with the tools for self-management, so they can be an active participant in their recovery. Providing patient-centered care and evidenced-based practice, Joanne implements a treatment plan unique to the individual’s problem and specific goals. With a special interest in treating neck and back pain, Joanne has taken post graduate-courses in manual therapy and the McKenzie Method to expand her skillset and to improve patient outcomes. Joanne is working towards becoming credentialed in Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT).
Joanne is a registered member of the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario and the Canadian Physiotherapy Association.
