Janice is currently on Maternity leave – she has directed her patients who require IMS/Needling to book with Jason Birring or Nathan Poon and patients requiring other forms of treatment including Clinical Pilates to book with Teri Lai. Janice’s anticipated return date is fall of 2022
Janice is a graduate of the Master’s of Physical Therapy program at UBC, and prior to that completed a Bachelor’s of Science and Master’s of Kinesiology. Janice has completed post-graduate courses in Manual Therapy (Level 1/2 Orthopaedic, Mulligan Concept), IMS/ dry needling, and clinical Pilates. She has pursued further training in Pelvic Floor rehabilitation, which allows her to treat conditions such as incontinence, prolapse, and pelvic pain in females and males. Vestibular rehabilitation is also a strong area of interest for Janice, with experience in treating BPPV, vertigo/dizziness, concussion, and balance deficits.
Janice’s interest in Physiotherapy stemmed from her own experience of sport injuries and rehab throughout her life, as well as a strong desire to empower individuals to move better, feel better, and live better. She integrates the principles of Pilates into physiotherapy to guide her clients in bringing more awareness to muscle activation and control during movement. Her fun and individualized treatments include a mixture of manual therapy, dry needling, patient education, and exercise prescription.
In her free time, Janice enjoys any activity that gets her active outside: basketball, ultimate, hiking, rock climbing, snowboarding, you name it! She will also likely be planning her next travel adventure somewhere in one of the seven continents!
