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.

B.Sc., Ph.D., M.Sc.P.T.
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.
TOSHA BURNS PT
My first physiotherapy experience was having treatment done after an injury I suffered playing hockey. I knew from then on that being a physiotherapist was the career I wanted to pursue because of the positive impact it can have on relieving a person’s pain and helping them to regain their optimal function. After completing a Bachelor of Science with a specialization in Kinesiology at Queen’s University, I completed my Master’s of Physiotherapy at the University of Ottawa in August 2021. While completing my physiotherapy education at the University of Ottawa, I was able to participate in a research study that was exploring the accessibility of pelvic health physiotherapy for women in Ontario which sparked my interest in pelvic floor physiotherapy. Since beginning my physiotherapy career, I have completed Level 1 and Level 2 certifications for the assessment and treatment of a variety of male and female pelvic floor dysfunctions. In addition to treating those suffering with pelvic floor dysfunction I also treat orthopaedic conditions.
KRISTYN VANHOOF PTA
Growing up as a competitive skater, I suffered many injuries that required physiotherapy treatments. The positive impact that physiotherapy played in my life as an athlete led to my interest in pursuing a career as a physiotherapist. I graduated from the University of Ottawa in 2023 with an Honors Bachelor of Human Kinetics and I am currently working towards completing my registered kinesiologist examination. My goal is to continue learning from the Morrisburg Physiotherapy team, gaining valuable knowledge and experience with the hopes of becoming a registered Physiotherapist in the near future.
