HOLISTIC PRACTICE PHILOSOPHY
At Backstream Physiotherapy, we have experienced sports physiotherapists. It is our philosophy to provide expert, friendly, and patient centred care to all of our clients. We will work with you in a holistic way to help you achieve your goals. We use only the most effective techniques and exercises to get you back to health. In this process we will be very much “hands on” in our treatments and guidance, and you may learn a thing or two about your own body. Jeannette has a specialization in acupuncture and trigger point dry needling.
We are passionate about helping people with whatever obstacles are in their way. We are able to do this through careful listening, evaluation, and treatment.
We enjoy working with a variety of people of all ages and all abilities. We treat accomplished athletes, weekend warriors, dog walkers, mothers, grandfathers and kids to name a few.
Excellent physiotherapy takes time. We spend the time so that you will see and feel excellent results.
MEET OUR TEAM OF PHYSIOTHERAPISTS
Jeannette graduated from physiotherapy in 2005. Throughout her career she has worked in collaboration with orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine doctors, family physicians, and other allied health professionals to provide expert care for her clients. She has worked with elite athletes in lacrosse (Salmonbellies) and the national women’s ball hockey team. In 2008 she became fully certified by the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada to practice ACUPUNCTURE. The combination of western and eastern medicine is very effective. Jeannette has completed her advanced trigger point dry needling courses in 2018 and is having dramatic success using the technique. Dry needling is similar to IMS treatment. The dry needling is designed to be less painful and is just as effective as IMS. Jeannette enjoys working with her clients to help them return to the activities they love and to improve their sense of well being.
In her spare time she enjoys hiking with her dogs, ice hockey, running and canoeing on the Sechelt inlet.
