Céline Séguin, BScPT
When I was 14 years old, I had a serious knee injury during a basketball try-out. I was sidelined from my favourite sport for months. As a teenager, that was the worst day of my life! To return to basketball, I needed professional help which is when physiotherapy came into my life for the 1st time. I needed grueling weekly sessions for 3 months. I discovered a whole new world! I admired the work they did to bring me back to sport form and finally be able to play basketball again at a competitive level! Needless to say, I fell in love with physiotherapy! After that personal experience, it became my dream to one day be that physiotherapist that can make a difference in someone else life.
In June 2009, that dream became reality!! I graduated with honors with a bachelor’s degree in Physiotherapy from the University of Ottawa. Since then, I have worked at Orleans Centre for Physiotherapy. I’ve had the privilege of living my childhood aspiration! I have continued to improve and heighten my skills with numerous post graduate courses:
- Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute (AFCI) :
- Level AA1
- Level AA2
- Advance Myofascial Release of Cervical-Thoracic techniques of John F. Barnes
- Myofascial Mobilization techniques of John F. Barnes
- Mulligan Concept Upper Quadrant
- APTEI : Therapeutic Taping
- Robin Mckenzie Institute Canada :
- PART A: Lumbar Spine
- PART B: Cervical Thoracic Spine
- Graston Technique; instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization : M1 level training
- APTEI: Advanced Physical Therapy Persistent Pain Certification Program
I value the importance of friendly, honest, caring and skillful treatments where the client’s comfort and needs are at the forefront of my physiotherapy treatments. Being fluently bilingual allows me to practice in Orleans with ease and provide services in the client’s preferred language.
Now more than 12 years later, I have 2 daughters who I want to inspire and show them a great example of what following your dreams is all about! I am truly fortunate to be a member of this wonderful team at Orleans Physio.
