Krista Ross MSCPT

Physiotherapist

 

Krista Ross (MScPT) graduated with honours from St. Francis Xavier University in 2009 with a BA in Human Kinetics and continued to earn an MSc in Physiotherapy from Dalhousie University in 2012.  Since then, she has exposed herself to a large scope of populations with clinical experience gained in orthopedics, vestibular/vertigo, neurological conditions, paediatrics, geriatrics and many more.  She has also spent time teaching and assisting upper-level students in the School of Physiotherapy at Dalhousie University as a lab demonstrator for the neuro-physiotherapy course.

Krista considers herself as a life-long learner and keeps herself up-to-date on the current best practices in her field.  She is currently working toward her Intermediate Orthopaedic Manual Therapy certification through the Orthopaedic Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association and her pelvic health certification for women's incontinence/urgency and pelvic pain.  She has assisted with clinical research through Dalhousie University and the Nova Scotia Health Authority (formally Capital Health) and is undergoing mentorship to help further her knowledge in paediatric care.

With such a vast array of experience, Krista has developed a strong sense of person-focused care, whereby each individual is recognized as a whole person and quality of life is placed as a main priority.  She believes in empowering her clients with the appropriate knowledge and tools to reach their full health potential. She believes that a team approach is important in health care and frequently works alongside many health care practitioners to make sure you get the best results!  Most importantly, Krista strives to make your time with her as fun as possible!  

When Krista is not busy with her career, she enjoys spending time with her two young boys.  She loves trying new forms of exercise and activity and exploring the city.  She has been a vegetarian for several years and enjoys learning about holistic health practices.
