Caroline received her bachelor’s degree in Biology and Psychology from St. Francis Xavier University in Nova Scotia in 2007. In 2011, she completed the Massage Therapy program at Mount Royal University in Alberta. Caroline has worked at Lifemark Physiotherapy Calgary Crowchild Twin Arena since 2007 and she loves the clinic wholeheartedly.
Earlier this year, Caroline became a Graston Technique clinician. Graston Technique® is an innovative, evidence-based form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to detect and effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions, as well as maintain optimal range of motion.
Graston Technique is non-invasive and uses stainless steel instruments to identify and treat fascial restrictions, connective tissue adhesions and soft tissue fibrosis. To break up tight tissues and scarring, the instruments are used on the affected areas to break up adhesions and scar tissue. The typical results from Graston Technique on patients is improved mobility, reduced pain and functioning myofascial tissue that is healthier.
Caroline also has extensive experience working in sport medicine clinics in Calgary. She has a special interest in treating neck and back injuries, providing myofascial rehabilitation and temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ – a jaw-based condition that can cause headaches, pain and swelling).
Caroline is a mom who tries to fit in her love of reading while chasing after her toddler and dog. She enjoys volunteering, and devotes her time to the CIBC Run for the Cure, representing Lifemark as an RMT or a walker.
