BScPT MSc PhD (she/her)
Nadia is a musculoskeletal/pelvic health physiotherapist and clinician researcher. She received her Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy from McGill University in 2009 and her Masters of Science from Queen’s University in 2011.
In 2016, she completed her Doctorate which centred around women with diastasis recti abdominus (a separation of the rectus abdominus muscle that occurs primarily in pregnancy). Specifically, her research focused on methods to objectively assess the signs of diastasis recti abdominus using ultrasound imaging, understanding the implications of the condition and increasing our knowledge of the best treatment approach of this condition.
She has published numerous manuscripts based on her research in peer-reviewed scientific journals including Physical Therapy, Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy, Neurology and Urodynamics, and the Journal of Electromyography and Kinesiology.
Her clinical and research interests are very much intertwined and include understanding the implications of a variety of musculoskeletal and pelvic health conditions on quality of life, developing and integrating novel assessment tools into practice and investigating treatment effectiveness using physiotherapeutic interventions.
In her spare time, Nadia enjoys yoga, skiing, and spending quality time with her puppy.
