Joanne Tishenko, BScPT, BHKin
From a young age, Joanne knew that she wanted to be a physiotherapist. While competing in field hockey, basketball and swimming in high school, and in varsity-level basketball at Trinity Western University (TWU), she gained first-hand knowledge of the benefits of physiotherapy.
After completing a Bachelor of Human Kinetics degree at TWU, she fulfilled her dream of becoming a physiotherapist and graduated from UBC in 2004 with her Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy (BScPT).
Since obtaining her physiotherapy degree in 2004, Joanne has gained significant experience treating a wide range of orthopaedic injuries for all ages and fitness levels, including sport-related sprains and strains, workplace injuries, motor vehicle accidents, postural issues and general aches and pains. She is a Level 3 trained Manual Therapist with the Orthopaedic Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association and a Gunn certified IMS (intramuscular stimulation) practitioner.
Joanne also has a keen interest in pre- and post-natal care, especially as a mother of two herself. Through her years of treating pelvic girdle pain/dysfunction during and after pregnancy, she has also pursued further education in pelvic health physiotherapy. This knowledge enables her to assess and treat pelvic health issues such as pelvic pain and urinary incontinence. Additionally, she is a certified Fit to Deliver
instructor and certified in the Rost Therapy
program. She can help resolve your pregnancy-related aches and pains, and work with you to get your body back into shape after delivery.
When away from the office, Joanne can be found running after her two active and fun-loving young girls, while sneaking in time to read a good book and dream about her family's next travel adventure.
