Who We Are

A common passion is shared by Nova's physiotherapists for continuous learning and attainment of education, including post-graduate education from around the world to ensure the highest level of current knowledge in their related clinical fields. They are dedicated to never-ending self-improvement through participation in international medical conferences, completion of courses, certification and post-graduate degrees, and active involvement in research and scientific journal publications. All pelvic floor physiotherapists must successfully complete a pelvic floor medicine mentorship program and full post-graduate certification in pelvic floor physiotherapy.

Nova's physiotherapists have been invited to sit on local, national and international boards and committees in support of pelvic floor health and are frequently asked to present at public forums to raise awareness to this important area of medicine.

Physiotherapy Divisions

Three clinical divisions are offered within Nova Physiotherapy.

The first division has offered traditional orthopaedic physiotherapy treatment for over 25 years. Nova's physiotherapists are devoted to the highest quality care with focus on their manual therapy skills, educating and motivating patients to increase their independence and physical abilities. Nova provides care for all musculoskeletal disorders including motor vehicle, work place and sport related injuries.

Nova's second division, the pelvic floor physiotherapy division known as IPPC-Incontinence & Pelvic Pain Clinic, began over 20 years ago. This clinic is recognized as a pioneer of pelvic floor physiotherapy within North America, uniquely offering care for all forms of pelvic floor dysfunction including bladder, bowel and sexual dysfunctions to all populations in need. At Nova, pelvic floor physiotherapy is available to both women and men, as well as children suffering with pelvic floor disorders such as bed wetting. IPPC-Incontinence & Pelvic Pain Clinic began as a small division of Nova Physiotherapy providing treatment to a population suffering in silence since little attention was focussed on this medical concern at that time. Over the past two decades, IPPC has evolved into a fully-functioning clinic networking with esteemed pelvic floor clinicians around the world. In 2009, IPPC was honoured with an invitation to collaborate with scientific researchers in the Netherlands to assume the North American arm of data collection. IPPC was identified as distinct in fulfilling education and clinical experience requirements necessary for this research study. 

Nova's third division was created ten years ago, with the pelvic floor physiotherapy division expanding into the Nova Physiotherapy & Women's Health Centre. This women’s health division provides the much needed focus for the care of women pre- and post-partum.

Nova Physiotherapy has a staff of highly quailified physiotherapists who focus their practices specifically to these special populations and their unique needs in medical care.
