Allana McLeod

Registered Physiotherapist

Allana McLeodAllana is a graduate of the University of Toronto's Masters of Science in Physical Therapy Program. Prior to completing her Masters, Allana obtained a Bachelors degree in Kinesiology from Wilfrid Laurier University. Allana has a passion for working with both the neurological population, as well as orthopaedic injuries and conditions. She developed these keen interests through her experience in a wide spectrum of clinical internships, which included: private orthopaedic clinic with a specialization in sports injuries, acute care on an internal medicine floor, orthopaedic rehabilitation post total joint replacements, neurological rehabilitation post traumatic brain injury, and neurological rehabilitation with a wide range of conditions in the private clinic setting.

Allana developed her passion for human movement while growing up as a competitive dancer at the elite level. In 2006, Allana represented Canada in the World Dance Championships in Riesa Germany. She continued to follow her passion for dance throughout her undergraduate career, competing at the varsity level with her University. While training at the National level, Allana refined her eye for movement analysis, which has become an attribute to her assessment and treatment techniques as a physiotherapist. Her love for dance also transitioned her into the world of Pilates, which she incorporates into many of her treatment plans for clients here at Neurocore.

Allana has a strong belief in the importance of lifelong learning. Since completing her Masters in Physical Therapy, Allana has pursued further professional development including: Manual Therapy Level 1; Sport Physiotherapy Taping; Soft Tissue Release; Introduction to Bobath: The study of Human Movement; and Myndmove administration training- A Functional Electrical Stimulation system for upper extremity dysfunction post-neurological injury. Allana will also be presenting her research on Workplace Injuries in Canadian Physiotherapists at the upcoming Ontario Physiotherapy Association Interaction Conference held in Ottawa March 2015. This paper is currently in the process for publication.

Allana is a member in good standing with the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario. She is also a member of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association's Neurosciences Division and Orthopaedic Division.
