It is with great pleasure we announce a new Physiotherapist to the clinic – Shannon Domres!
Shannon will be getting started with clients on August 2, 2016 working full time, and she brings with her some significant experience!
Shannon is a graduate of the University of Saskatchewan where she earned her Bachelor of Science Kinesiology (2008) and Master of Physical Therapy (2011). In addition to her studies she was a full time student-athlete with the Huskie Women’s Volleyball team (2003-09) and Certified Personal Trainer working part-time with the Human Performance Center.
Since Shannon’s graduation she has been based out of Saskatoon, but worked extensively in communities in rural Saskatchewan. Her primary focus has been in orthopedics, however, her experience has gained her expertise in multiple aspects of physiotherapy such as: advanced spinal assessment, post-surgical rehabilitation, temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ), osteoporosis, neurological disorders and exercise prescription. Shannon is well trained in delivering comprehensive programs related to every area of the body, developing and implementing graduated return to work and activity plans, and working with clients to produce appropriate goal-orientated treatment strategies.
In order to stay current and further her knowledge, Shannon has pursued many courses and certifications post-graduation. She has completed her Level II & III (Upper & Lower Quadrant) for the Orthopedic Division, she is Bone Fit™ Trained through Osteoporosis Canada, and a Certified Exercise Physiologist through the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology. In addition to these certifications she has recently attended courses on “Diagnosis and Treatment of Movement Impairement Syndrome [Shirley Sahrmann]”, “Clinical Reasoning Through Functional Capacity Evaluation [CPTE]”, “Mobilization of the Nervous System [Neuro Orthopedic Institute]”, and “Graded Motor Imagery [Neuro Orthopedic Institute]”. In the near future Shannon intends to complete the Intermediate Orthopedic Dvision Exam and GUNN Intramuscular Stimulation course.
As a former Huskie athlete, Shannon has first-hand experience of the demands sport requires of the body. As a result, she has a strong interest in working with athletes to educate and prevent injury, in addition to assisting athletes with their rehabilitation. She is knowledgeable in the assessment and treatment of multiple areas and types of injuries common in sport and uses her skill set and background to rehabilitate athletes and get them back to their sport.
With her recent Bone Fit™ training through Osteoporosis Canada, she has developed a keen interest in working with the osteoporotic population. She will offer classes to provide education, proper rehabilitation and specific exercise programming to address each individual’s needs. She hopes to build awareness among the general population and those living with osteoporosis.
