Valerie Beaulieu, B.Sc., CAT(C)
Valerie obtained a Bachelor in Exercise Science from Concordia University with a Specialization in Athletic Therapy. She is a Certified Athletic Therapist with the Canadian Athletic Therapy Association, a Certified Sports First Responder and Sports CPR/AED-Health Care Provider, a Running Specialist with The Running Clinic, and has had a Strength and Conditioning Specialist Certification. Valerie places a great emphasis on using a global treatment approach when assessing and identifying the cause of both sport and non-sport related physical injuries. She promotes joint mobility restoration, functional ability and quality of life. She uses a one-on-one hands-on treatment method that consists of patient education, a combination of contemporary manual therapy techniques, such as soft tissue release, myofascial release, joint mobilization, muscle energy, muscle testing, therapeutic modalities, and specific personalized home exercise program. This proactive attitude results in a faster recovery process and reduces the risks of re-injury.
Valerie had a great opportunity to expand her Athletic Therapy skills rehabilitating injuries of individuals ranging from the general public to high performance athletes.
Among the numerous sporting clubs and organization events that Valerie participated as an Athletic Therapist, she had many opportunities as part of the medical team with Para-Athletics Canada during several training camps and international events such as:
- 2010 US Paralympic National Championships (Miramar, Florida),
- 2010 Swiss National Championships (Arbon, Switzerland),
- 2011 IPC Athletics World Championships (Christchurch, New-Zealand),
- 2013 IPC Athletics World Championships (Lyon, France),
- 2013 Canadian Track & Field National Championships and a number of National Para-Athletics Training camps in Florida.
Valerie believes in providing an effective clinical practice where critical information must be accurately communicated by encouraging team collaboration with other health professionals and specialists in the area.
