SUZANNE JOHNSTON PT
I have been a physiotherapist since 1996 and have worked in many different settings including hospital (inpatient/outpatient/ortho clinic), private clinic, and long-term care. I have provided care in orthopaedics, neurology, and palliative care. I have extensive training and experience in orthopaedic injuries, neurological conditions, vestibular conditions, post concussion syndrome (shift), mobility training, paediatric and geriatric care. I also perform acupuncture and functional dry needling as part of physiotherapy treatment and fit for custom orthotics. In recent years, I have also helped develop and deliver education sessions for individuals with chronic pain.

I have been a physiotherapist since 2009. Prior to my physiotherapy training, I obtained a Ph.D. in Neuroscience at Memorial University, and during that time I was a lecturer and laboratory instructor in the Faculty of Medicine and the School of Pharmacy. I have also been a clinical instructor for over 30 students, ranging from high school to Masters of Physical Rehabilitation. I continue to be interested in neuroscience, and in addition to treating orthopaedic conditions, I work with individuals who have suffered a stroke, or are diagnosed with neurological conditions such as Parkinson's and MS. I have additional post-graduate training in several orthopaedic areas as well as neurorehabilitation, vestibular dysfunction, post concussion syndrome, myofascial pain, complex regional pain syndrome, and chronic pain. I also use acupuncture, as well as functional dry needling to augment therapy.
I graduated in 2020 with a Masters of Science in Physiotherapy from Glasgow Caledonian University in Scotland. Prior to completing my Master's degree I have worked at Morrisburg Physiotherapy on and off for 5 years as a physiotherapy assistant. Prior to becoming a physiotherapist I completed a Bachelors of Human Kinetics at the University of Ottawa. I have always loved playing sports and living a very active lifestyle. I have experience playing varsity soccer for my University in Scotland and continue to play competitive soccer back home in Canada. After completing my National Exams this year, I will officially become a Registered Physiotherapist.
I am a graduate of a Bachelor of Public Health (Honours) from Brock University. I have also completed a post graduate program in exercise science, after completing this program I became certified with the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology as a Clinical Exercise Physiologist. I have been working as a physiotherapy assistant since September 2019. I am also fluent in American Sign Language. My goal is to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all of the patients of Morrisburg Physiotherapy.
I graduated in 2020 from the University of Western Ontario with a Bachelors of Arts-Honours Specialization in Kinesiology. I was fortunate to be the student Athletic Therapist for the Women's Basketball team during my senior year, and have completed my First Responder certificate. After completing my degree, I successfully completed the provincial examination, and I am now a Registered Kinesiologist. In the next year my goal is to learn from, and become an integral part of the Morrisburg Physiotherapy team, with the hopes of continuing my education next fall within the profession.
