Marcia has had a varied career in Physiotherapy but her main focus has always been treating injuries in athletes both competitive and recreational.
Over the past 21 years, Marcia has taken numerous post graduate courses related to the treatment of orthopedic injuries. Every course has helped to broaden the scope of her practice. Most recently she completed the Gunn IMScourse allowing her to practice Intramuscular Stimulation which is a needling technique to help with pain associated with tight muscle bands. Marcia is also trained in SFMA (Selective Functional Movement Assessment) and the NKT level 1 (Neurokinetic Therapy). Marcia has a very hands on approach to treatment and she also incorporates her treatment with specific exercises to help assist with recovery and improve overall function.
