Casey Swan has been practising as a physiotherapist since 2009. She graduated from Queen’s University with a Master’s of Science in Physiotherapy. Prior to becoming a physiotherapist, Casey worked as a Kinesiologist after obtaining her Bachelor of Science (Magna Cum Laude) with Honours in Human Kinetics from the University of Ottawa. Since completing her degree in Physiotherapy, Casey has gone on to take various post graduate courses such as acupuncture (from the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute (AFCI)), treatment of chronic and complex pain, numerous courses from the Advanced Physical Therapy Education Institute (APTEI) and Functional Dry Needling.
Functional Dry Needling is an extremely effective technique used to treat acute and chronic conditions. It uses small needles to deactivate trigger points and ‘loosen’ shortened muscles responsible for causing pain and biomechanical dysfunction.
As a former competitive dancer and now physiotherapist, Casey holds a keen interest in the biomechanics of movement and all it encompasses. Casey has a strong foundation in managing acute and chronic low back and neck pain, various sports and repetitive strain injuries; in addition to a variety of other musculoskeletal impairments resulting from everyday and or recreational activity.
Casey is passionate about rehabilitating, restoring and enhancing client’s function and performance. She enjoys working with a wide variety of injuries and client skill sets to achieve maximal therapeutic results.
