Lynda is a UK trained physiotherapist (Bristol, 1983) with extensive clinical experience and ongoing post-graduate education in orthopaedics, Women’s Health issues and pelvic floor rehabilitation for both women and men. She is a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy and a certified Gunn IMS (intra-muscular stimulation) Practitioner.

Over the past 15 years, Lynda has pursued her interest in Women’s Health and Pelvic Health physiotherapy: this includes rehabilitation to address incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic pain and for osteoporosis. For women who are pregnant, and new Mothers, she is trained in the management of Diastasis of Rectus Abdominis (DRA) and uses Röst therapy for the treatment of pelvic girdle pain. She occasionally works (as vacation relief) in both the pelvic pain and continence clinics at BC Women’s Hospital.

Lynda’s treatment approach uses a combination of exercise therapy, manual therapy, Gunn IMS, pain management techniques, Real Time Ultrasound Imaging (evaluation and biofeedback for the abdominals and lumbo-pelvic area) and postural advice. She encourages participation in appropriate home exercises, in conjunction with treatment, to help you achieve your functional goals whether connected to activities at home or work, participating in sports, or related to sensitive aspects of your bladder, bowel or sexual health. 

Lynda maintains a keen interest in the physiotherapy profession; is a member of the Women’s Health physiotherapy interest group and participates in committees for the College of Physical Therapists of BC. She enjoys leading an active lifestyle in particular: playing field hockey, biking, yoga, running (completed both 10km and half marathons), and exploring the BC outdoors with her family.
