About

Welcome to sciaticnervepain.ca!

I will be regularly updating the website with information about sciatic nerve pain (sciatica), related conditions, treatment, information about how physiotherapy can help, as well as information on how to contact a physiotherapist in Ontario who can treat your condition.   I will also have a lot of potential referrals for clinics, personal injury lawyers, and other businesses.  Stay tuned for updates!

About Me

My name is Joanna Habbous and I am a Registered Physiotherapist with the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario.  I graduated from the University of Toronto with a Masters of Physiotherapy (2008) and a Bachelor of Physical Education and Health (High Honours, 2006) .  After graduation I cycled across Canada to raise money for the Herbie Fund, a children’s charity associated with Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto.

I am a certified Active Release Techniques (ART) provider, having successfully completed both Spine and Upper Extremity Courses.  Other qualifications include Lower Extremity Mulligan Techniques, Level 1 Acupuncture (AFCI) and Level 1 Manual Therapy.

I am currently working as physiotherapist and clinic director at Physiohealth Studios.  Physiohealth Studios is a brand new fully integrated health centre located at Yonge and King in the heart of downtown Toronto.  In addition to treating conditions such as sciatica, low back pain, whiplash, sports injuries, and many other ailments, my team and I are dedicated to helping all of our clients achieve their optimal health and wellness goals.

In my spare time I enjoy beach volleyball, snowboarding, camping, hiking, spending time outdoors as well as spending time with my family and friends.

Feel free to contact me directly at joanna@physiohealthstudios.com to set up an appointment or free consultation.  You can also email me with feedback about the blog, or with any ideas/topics that you would like me to write about.
