Stephanie Howard

BHK, MScPT, FCAMPT, CAFCI, CIDN, Diploma of Manual and Manipulative Therapy, Certified in Acupuncture and Dry Needling, Pivot Dancer Expert

Stephanie’s interest in pursuing a career as a Physiotherapist began at a young age while she was training at the National Ballet School of Canada, and often found herself seeking treatment from physiotherapists for various injuries over the 9 years she studied at the school. Today, Stephanie uses her comprehensive dance knowledge to bring a unique perspective to the assessment and treatment of dancers she sees in her clinical practice.

Following her time spent at the National Ballet School, Stephanie attended the University of British Columbia where she completed her Bachelor’s degree in Human Kinetics in 2005. From there, Stephanie returned home to Toronto to complete her Master of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of Toronto in 2007. Stephanie has continued to challenge herself through extensive continuing education. In 2011, Stephanie achieved her CAFCI designation, a certification in acupuncture training. In 2013, Stephanie completed her Advanced Manual and Manipulative Therapy exam to receive her FCAMPT (Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Therapy) designation. Since becoming a mom to 2 young girls, Stephanie has pursued an interest in women’s health, and is now qualified as a pelvic health physiotherapist. Most recently, Stephanie achieved her CIDN designation, a certification in integrated dry needling, and was also named a faculty expert in the Pivot Dancer program.

Stephanie is active in fostering the continued education of students and other physiotherapists. At the University of Toronto, Stephanie holds a Status Faculty appointment where she has acted as a small group facilitator as well as a clinical lab facilitator. Stephanie has also been a clinical assistant in the Orthopaedic Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association. Stephanie has been a clinical instructor to several students who she has mentored during her time at Pivot, and she actively mentors her colleagues as they pursue their FCAMPT designation.
