Sarah Black is an enthusiastic and driven physiotherapist who is passionate about human movement and anatomy. She graduated with a Masters in Physical Therapy in 2011, from McGill University in Montreal, Quebec. There she was awarded the school’s clinical excellence prize. This award is given to the recipient who achieves exceptional overall performance reviews from mentoring therapists. Prior to her time spent at McGill, Sarah completed a Bachelors in Science in Human Kinetics at the University of Ottawa.

She has continued to pursue post-graduate education to advance her hands on skills and client outcomes. Some of which include Traditional Chinese Acupuncture, Functional Dry Needling and Active Release Techniques commonly known as A.R.T. She is one of the few practicing physiotherapists in Ottawa who is ‘Full Body’ certified in A.R.T. The treatment is a patent soft tissue mobilization technique, which involves the therapist hands and the client’s active movement. The goal of treatment is to identify adherences or trigger points in structures related to the injury (muscle, tendon, ligament, nerve or fascial tissue) and release them to decrease pain or restore joint movement and function.

This technique has allowed Sarah to successfully treat those of all ages with acute or chronic conditions. She also has a keen interest in biomechanics of sports and has provided treatment to athletes participating in baseball, soccer, football and dancers from professional ballet companies.

Outside the clinic, Sarah was raised on a dairy farm and grew up figure skating competitively. She enjoys staying active at the gym, walking the dog and watching football.

Dr. Ashleah Linden


Chiropractor

I am so delighted to be joining the Back on Track team at Carleton Place to offer chiropractic services. What attracted me the most to chiropractic is its comprehensive, hands-on approach to assessment and treatment. I have a passion for health and fitness and am thrilled every day when I have the opportunity to promote health to others. More and more, Canadians are taking a proactive role in their own health and I believe evidence-based manual therapy should be an integral component of their care.

l attended the University of Western Ontario to complete my Bachelor of Health Science degree and then entered the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 2004 in Toronto. Many do not realize that a Doctor of Chiropractic has spent four years at an accredited chiropractic institution, receiving more than 4,200 hours of specialized clinical training. The chiropractic curriculum at CMCC, includes studies in anatomy, radiology, pathology, biomechanics, chiropractic principles, diagnosis and adjustment techniques. In particular, chiropractors receive training in radiology that covers a range of topics from radiation biophysics and protection to clinical X-ray interpretation and diagnosis. Radiology training consists of more than 360 contact hours followed by application during clinical internship.

As primary care practitioners, we develop and carry out a comprehensive treatment / management plan, recommend therapeutic exercise and other non-invasive therapies, and provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counselling.

There are many reasons to seek chiropractic care! Here are just a few:

-back or neck pain                  -headaches

-Automobile Accidents        -Workplace Accidents

-Strains and Sprains               -Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI)

-Sports Injury                          -Arthritis
