Priya joined LiveWell Health in March 2021. She completed her Bachelors in Health Studies from the University of Waterloo in 2012. She completed her Masters Degree in Physical Therapy in 2016 from the University of Western Ontario. Priya has recently gained her credentials in the Mckenzie Method of Assessment and Treatment, also known as, Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT). It is a scientifically proven assessment system to treat your neck, back and extremity problems.
Priya has experience with patients in different settings such as in hospitals, manufacturing plants, outpatient orthopedic clinics and community settings.
She believes in empowering her patients through strategies of self-management. For her treatments, Priya mainly focuses on active exercise interventions to help you take control of your pain and get back to what you love doing. She uses a mix of clinician techniques and patient-generated movements for her treatments. In addition to taking more courses within the MDT system, Priya also wishes to pursue pelvic health, concussion and vestibular rehabilitation courses in the future as a means to broaden her skills and knowledge.
Outside work, Priya has been volunteering her time with Western Physical Therapy as an external reviewer for admission into their Physical Therapy program, since 2017. On the side, she loves to cook, spend time with family and look after her toddler son.
