Valerie Naccarato

Valerie graduated from McMaster University with a Masters of Science in Physical Therapy following a Specialized Honours Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from York University. She is currently a member of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association with a focus in Orthopaedics and Sports Sciences.

Valerie knew from a young age that she wanted to be a physiotherapist. A former competitive gymnast and provincial power tumbler, Valerie understood the rehabilitation process having sustained several sports injuries herself. Valerie remains up to date on current research using an evidence-based practice approach. Her practice involves using manual therapy, exercise prescription, education and pain control strategies as part of her tools for the rehabilitation process. Valerie also holds a strong belief in incorporating patient values into the decision making and goal setting process. Valerie has treated a variety of patient populations including high performance national and provincial athletes, weekend warriors, performers and professional dancers and individuals with acute or chronic injuries.

Valerie is continuously furthering her knowledge and clinical skills in manual therapy, acupuncture, treatment of musculoskeletal and sport injuries through post-graduate courses. In her spare time, Valerie enjoys keeping active by jogging, biking, hiking, and regular work-outs at the gym. She also loves to participate in many sports including soccer, hockey, tennis and snowboarding.
