Catherine Lang

Registered Physiotherapist

Catherine is originally from Montreal, but is now a happy Ottawa resident. She completed both her bachelor’s in rehabilitation science and master’s in physiotherapy at McGill University. She has since been using her skills to treat a variety of patients from 4 to 94 years old. She strongly believes in the saying “motion is lotion”, and that the body needs to move in order to heal. She strives to provide the best care she can, including manual therapy, exercises, and education. As a certified McKenzie therapist, her focus is on improving her patients’ lifestyles, getting them back to their daily activities, and preventing re-injury.
