Leah Forrestall

Practice style (Philosophy)

Leah graduated with a Masters of Physiotherapy from Queen’s University and completed a Bachelor of Kinesiology at Dalhousie University. She is a certified Pelvic Health and Orthopaedic Physiotherapist.

Leah has a particular interest in and passion for treating pelvic floor dysfunctions. With her post-graduate training in pelvic health and orthopaedic skills, she is committed to treating both men and women who suffer from generalized pelvic/low back/hip pain and urogenital/ano-rectal dysfunction. She especially loves to work with women addressing concerns related to pregnancy and post-partum recovery throughout the lifespan.

In addition to her pelvic health interest, Leah loves to help athletes and weekend warriors get back to what they love. She has worked closely with varsity hockey players as an athletic trainer and completed clinical education hours in Melbourne, Australia working with unique high-performance athletes.

Finding ways to work closely with her patients and returning them to what they enjoy in life, is vital to her treatment plan. Leah takes a holistic, hands on approach to care, considering all components essential to individualized recovery. She feels an evidence-based approach to treatment is fundamental and loves integrating new skills and knowledge into her practice.

Unique Facts

Leah is originally from Nova Scotia and knows lots of fun facts about lobster and the Bay of Fundy (ask her about it!). In her spare time, she loves to bake awesome goodies for her friends and family. She enjoys running, cycling, weight training, soccer, golf and outdoor adventuring!
