Carole joined the West Island Action Sport Physio clinic in 1989. A graduate of Concordia University with a B.Sc. in Exercise Sciences, specialized in Athletic Therapy, she became a certified athletic therapist in 1994. She is a member of both the Canadian Athletic Therapy Association (CATA) and the Corporation des thérapeutes du sport du Québec (CTSQ). As such, she was first involved with the clinic as the coordinator of both the Industrial Rehab Program and the Pool Therapy Program between 1990 and 1995, as well as covering numerous sporting events including the Canada Games and international figure skating championships. She has also worked with college football for 4 seasons.
She then pursued her studies in osteopathy at the Collège d’études ostéopathiques de Montréal, from which she graduated in 1996. Since became a member of the Registre des ostéopathes du Québec (R.O.Q.) and of the Association des diplômés en ostéopathie du Québec (ADOQ). She has taught human physiology at the Canadian College of Osteopathy (CCO) in Toronto between 1998 and 2002, while still working at the West Island Action Sport Physio clinic. In 2002, she co-organized the CATA annual national conference on the theme of the adolescent athlete’s health and, between 2003 and 2005, she co-directed two osteopathic research projects studying the impact of osteopathic treatment on the recovery of athletes who had suffered a concussion.
A true believer in continuing education, she participates on an annual basis in different courses, symposiums and conferences with a growing interest in the neurological development of children, including newborns. In fact, she is currently one of the supervisors of the clinical teaching in pediatrics at the Collège d’études ostéopathiques de Montréal, a campus of Wales University, U.K.
She has recently joined the Action Sport Physio Laval clinic, with which she is collaborating in the organisation of an osteopathy-physiotherapy pediatric service. She is also structuring a global neuromuscular integration exercise program that covers eye muscles: the LYNX program.
Her personal sports experience includes 8 years of training in dance and she is a former high level athlete and coach in synchronised swimming. Now that she is a motherm, her sports leisure activities take place mainly outdoors: cross-country and downhill skiing, as well as hiking.
With all this experience, Carole now treats patients of all ages, from newborns to adults, from the recreational to the elite athlete, always with the same objective: promoting optimal return to health and activity!
