BRITTNEY WINNITOY
MSCPT, BFA (DANCE), BSc

Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization

     KT-Tape 

   

Brittney completed her Masters of Science in Physiotherapy at McMaster University in Hamilton, ON. Previously, she obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance and a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and Health Science from York University in Toronto, ON. Brittney also previously worked as a Certified Personal Trainer.  

 

Brittney is excited to work with people of all ages, and is passionate about helping people achieve their rehabilitation goals so that they can live their lives in a way that is the most fulfilling to them.  Thus, she approaches physio from a lens of holistic health, and encourages her clients to play an active role in their recovery process. It is important to her that each client feels heard, cared for, and receives an individualized plan that is tailored to their unique goals and abilities.  Brittney’s treatment plans include education, manual therapy, stretching and strengthening exercises, and injury prevention. She is also trained in IASTM, KT-Taping, Blood Flow Restriction Therapy, and several other electrophysical modalities.  

 

Additionally, Brittney has been dancing since age 4 and has a special interest in advocating for athletes’ health and promoting career longevity. Outside of the clinic, she is certified as a multi-sport coach through the National Coaching Certification Program.  In clinic, she has experience rehabilitating youth and adult athletes in a wide range of sports including soccer, basketball, baseball, hockey, lacrosse, gymnastics, and dance. Recently, she shadowed PTs for Ballet Jörgen in Toronto and completed a PT internship in New York City with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre. At Ailey, she treated both students and the professional company and participated in pre-season dancer screening. She is currently part of a research project that is working towards developing standardized return-to-sport concussion protocols for dancers. Lastly, in 2021, she led a workshop on Mental Performance Skills and Injury Prevention for the Canadian National Dance Team.  

 

When Brittney is not in the clinic, she loves to be active and outdoors. You can find her in dance classes, performing onstage, at the gym, hiking mountain summits (which often includes dangling her feet off the edge of a cliff), and waterskiing in the summertime.   She's also a latte and cappuccino enthusiast and is always on the lookout for new local coffee shops to try!
