Susan Wakeley graduated from the University of Western Ontario in 1997. Her career has brought her to a wide variety of work settings in Detroit, Windsor, Stratford, and Kitchener-Waterloo. In 2015, Susan joined our HCRC team and we are thrilled to have her. Experience in the adult neurological and paediatric fields, along with her orthopaedic continuing education has helped Susan to develop a unique approach to Physiotherapy.
Susan has completed a certification in acupuncture, Integrated Dry Needling (for trigger point release and neuropathic pain), and holds a Diploma of Advanced Orthopaedic Manual and Manipulative Physiotherapy. This is an extensive internationally recognized training program in the area of orthopaedics, offered by the Canadian Physiotherapy Association. Most recently, Susan has completed training for the ConnectTherapy Approach© to expand her toolbox for client treatment options.
Susan is extremely interested in how the body moves in certain situations, whether it be when biking, dancing, playing soccer, or in just everyday life, and how the body has compensated in movement over the years. This leads her to evaluate what changes need to happen to get her patients back on track. She is very passionate about her job and loves seeing the dramatic changes that her treatment has on her patients.
Susan enjoys treating athletes and as an athlete herself, loves running, training for marathons, cycling, weight training, and swimming.
