A Message from Terra
I often get asked by my patients why I wanted to become a Physiotherapist. My long answer....I grew up dancing and playing soccer competitively so, as a teenager, when the demands of these activities became greater, I was no stranger to injuries. As a patient, I experienced some really great physios and frankly, some really terrible ones. Regardless of my various physio experiences, as I began to learn more about my own injuries, I became increasingly fascinated by the complexity of the human body and the various ways to keep it healthy and injury free.
I love helping people reach their goals and feel better everyday. I love that I get to be creative and that I am always faced with new challenges as no two patients are alike. At Pulse Physiotherapy, it is my goal to provide a positive and interactive physio experience. I want to help patients understand why they are experiencing pain and motivate them to be a part of their own recovery process. I believe in the importance of activity and I am passionate about working with patients to help them return to an active lifestyle.
