Joanna Nawrotek MSc PT
Complete Concussion Management Provider
Radial Shockwave Therapy Provider
Joanna embarked on her graduate studies at the University of Ottawa, first completing her Bachelor of Science specializing in Physiology, and then moving on to graduate from the Masters of Health Sciences in Physiotherapy program in 2015. Her education and subsequent work experience have allowed Joanna to work from Vancouver to Thunder Bay with a wide variety of patients, and gain experience with a multitude of injuries, from musculoskeletal problems to neurological conditions. Having always studied in French, Joanna is also happy to provide treatments in both official languages.
Joanna experienced the benefits of physiotherapy and the importance of participating actively in your recovery for herself when she injured her hand playing football during her studies. As such, she greatly encourages her patients to be involved in their health journey by emphasizing open communication, education and rehabilitative exercises. This empowers patients on their road to recovery. Joanna supports her approach with hands-on care that includes manual therapy, acupuncture, functional dry needling and vestibular rehab. Moreover, to further her knowledge, she has taken continuing education courses in the McKenzie Method of treatment, chronic pain management, as well as concussion management.
In her spare time, Joanna is passionate about travelling, Latin dance, volleyball, and photography.
