Phoebe Mathews, Athletic Therapist
My goal as an athletic therapist is to educate and guide athletes and non-athletes toward feeling the healthiest they can in their sport or in their daily lives. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from McGill University and then proceeded to study Athletic Therapy at Mount Royal University in Calgary, AB. In those years, I worked as a therapist for many different sports including soccer, hockey, football, and rugby. Since then, I have been working with the women’s soccer team at Carleton University, the volleyball teams at La Cité Collégiale, and the Ottawa West Golden Knights Junior B hockey team.
I believe that through my experiences with many different sports, I have developed excellent skills to rehabilitate someone back to their level of activity. Focusing on the root cause of the injury will get someone back to their healthiest self much faster and more effectively than looking solely at the affected area. My treatment style includes a variety of techniques, such as soft tissue release, fascial release, joint mobilizations, muscle energy technique, and some cranio-sacral therapy.
In my free time, I like to play soccer and hockey. I also enjoy spinning, skiing, and snowboarding. I enjoy traveling and I hope to discover Canada and other amazing countries. I believe that balance in life is very important, and doing the things you love is crucial to keeping a healthy mind and healthy lifestyle!
