Tanya is a McMaster University Honours Kinesiology graduate. She completed her Master’s degree in physiotherapy at the University of Toronto. Tanya’s assessment and treatment approach is rooted deeply in the field on manual therapy. She believes in the value of a thorough biomechanical assessment to identify the cause behind the symptoms. 

As a part of her post-graduate studies, Tanya completed her Intermediate level training in Manual and Manipulative Physiotherapy as well as post graduate courses in vestibular rehabilitation. She has great success treating various orthopedic conditions of both traumatic and overuse nature employing techniques such as joint, muscle, fascia, nerve, visceral mobilizations as well as providing tailored exercise prescriptions to correct the cause behind the injury. 

Her special interest lies in dance rehabilitation. After dancing for 24 years and still continuing, Tanya has an insider’s perspective to dancers’ needs. Combining that insight with her knowledge of biomechanics and rehabilitation techniques is a powerful tool to use to help dancers on their way to a pain-free future.

Tanya completed additional training in order to treat female and male pelvic floor problems. This is another area of Tanya’s interest and she is excited to treat potential patients that are suffering from a variety of pelvic floor and incontinence/bladder issues and patients with chronic low back, pelvic or hip pain. Tanya is also interested in educating and treating women during pregnancy and post-partum to help with diastasis rectus, weak core and pregnancy/birth associated discomfort and pain. In her free time Tanya likes to take ballet classes, spend time with her family, travel and enjoy outdoor activities.

Tanya has consistently and expertly treated whatever injury I had for many years now. No matter what the issue was, Tanya was able to treat it effectively and creatively. She uses different techniques like manipulation, acupuncture, etc, based on her assessment of the injury. She is compassionate and excited about what she does. My wellbeing is always the most important aspect to her. A few weeks ago I had a virtual appointment with her and in one appointment she was able to assess and treat my sore wrist.Tanya and the team at Family Physio are professional, courteous and so helpful. I feel very lucky to have found them so many years ago. Everyone should have a physiotherapist like Tanya!
