Sarah Trottier is a bilingual registered physiotherapist who completed her Bachelors of Health Sciences in 2012 and her Masters of Physiotherapy in 2015 both at the University of Ottawa. She grew up in North Bay, and was very active in the sporting community, which played a huge role in her becoming a physiotherapist. After years of living in Ottawa for school, she had fallen in love with the city and decided to continue her physiotherapy career in the nation’s Capital.
Through her work, Sarah realized early on in her career that she had an interest in pelvic health. She completed post graduate training in pelvic floor rehabilitation, which included courses to assess and treat many pelvic health conditions, such as bladder and bowel incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, chronic pelvic pain, painful intercourse, diastasis recti (or DRA), and many other related conditions.
Sarah understands that pelvic floor issues may be a vulnerable topic, but she believes that her compassionate and positive approach can help clients feel empowered in a comfortable and safe environment.
Sarah has a strong commitment to continuing education. In addition to pelvic floor training, Sarah has taken multiple courses that focus on treating the body as a whole, including Diane Lee’s Integrative System Model for treating women with pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic girdle pain, urinary incontinence and DRA. She has also taken courses focused on treating female athletes with pelvic dysfunction, pain science, myofascial release, visceral manipulation, acupuncture, dry needling and concussion rehab. She looks forward to her next adventure, as she will be taking courses to increase her knowledge in pediatric care for pelvic issues.
In her spare time, Sarah enjoys spending time outside with her two goldendoodles Peta and Molly. If not with her two fluff balls, you can find her at an arena playing ringette.
