About Karen, BScPT, CMRP Physiotherapist - Certified Matrix Repatterning Practitioner
Strive to live life painfree
Karen has dedicated her career to developing the most effective manual therapy skills, to provide her clients effective and lasting results. In her search to provide quality healthcare at the highest possible level, Karen became a Matrix Repatterning Practitioner in 2011. Karen has assisted founder Dr. Roth, in training healthcare professionals from across North America to become Certified Matrix Repatterning Practitioners. Karen's 36 years as a physiotherapist has provided her with a wealth of experience. Her 23 years at Southlake Regional Health Center, 6 years at Scarborough General Hospital's outpatient orthopedic/sports injury clinic and 2 years at St. John's Rehabilitation Hospital have given her a wealth of knowledge and experience in many disciplines of physiotherapy. Karen's career includes work not only in orthopedics and sports injury but cardiovascular ICU and rehab, neurology, acute and chronic cardiorespiratory clients and general rehabilitation. She brings all of these skills to her private practice in Gravenhurst.
Karen is an avid recreational athlete and is no stranger to injury. She knows the need for accurate diagnosis and treatment for a successful return to sport.
Karen has competed in the Boston Marathon. She was a competitive X-Country skier during university. She worked at Lake Louise as a ski patroller and last year took up a new sport of backcountry alpine skiing. Her love for the mountains of western Canada keeps pulling her back. She now enjoys recreational hockey and has recently joined the Gravenhurst Curling Club. Karen volunteers her physio skills to the Canadian Waterski Show Team, where her daughters are team members.
Now living in Muskoka with her husband Brad, she looks forward to making a strong contribution to her new community.
