Jill Robertson, PT

I have been treating patients since 1987 when I graduated from Dalhousie University with a BSc(PT). I returned to Dalhousie University to research manual therapy treatment of the hip joint and received my MSc(PT) in 2001. I opened Beaverbank Orthopaedic and Sport Physiotherapy in 1993 and Young Kempt Physiotherapy in 2002 and continue to work at these state of the art clinics.

I also teach part time at Dalhousie University in the Orthopaedics department of the School of Physiotherapy. I am an instructor and examiner for the Orthopaedic Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association. I am a mentor for physiotherapists who are training for their Diploma in Manipulative Therapy or Clinical Masters at the University of Western Ontario. In 2009, I received the Canadian Physiotherapy Association Mentorship award. In 2012, I was named the NS College of Physiotherapy “Physiotherapist of the Year”. In 2012 I received the designation Clinical Specialist Musculoskeletal from the Canadian Physiotherapy Association.

I am married and have two active children. I love most sports. I enjoy playing ice hockey, tennis, water and snow skiing.

I believe manual therapy is an important component in the rehabilitation of many patients. I understand that the manual therapy treatment techniques help to restore joint motion, muscle flexibility and nerve mobility but that full function requires the integration of joint motion, muscular activation and endurance, overall proper posture and movement patterns. My treatment philosophy involves empowering the patient with knowledge. Patients who understand their condition will be able to avoid aggravating stresses and perform exercises to maintain the improvements gained from physiotherapy.
