My name is Chouchou Mwunvaneza and I am a Physiotherapist Assistant who begun my employment at Charlton Physiotherapy in 2012 and have been working for Life Clinic since August of 2014. I work with clients ranging from children to seniors teaching them to effectively cope with their limitations in movement, daily functioning and activity.
I have accomplished attaining a degree, varying from Graphic Communication in Photography and Photojournalism from SIAST College in the Western part of Canada, as well as earning my Physiotherapist Assistant Diploma and Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Certificate from the National Academy of Health and Business in Hamilton, Ontario in 2012. At the National Academy of Health and Business, I was enrolled in a two-year program that enabled me with the skills to become a Physiotherapist Assistant. Other accomplishments include: volunteerism with the St. Peters Hospital working in the departments that consisted of medically complex services in Physiotherapy. These departments displayed the importance of patient care, management of patient credentials, aiding patients with contractures, as well as seating and mobility issues that arise with degenerative diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.
I thoroughly enjoy spending quality time with my daughter as well as traveling and experiencing new adventures with loved ones. Currently, I am continuing my education in recreational and occupational studies. I am excited for the future and my endeavors in the field of science.
I highly believe in the importance of one’s mobility and strength to restore physical function, as this is displayed with clients through various exercises with care and continuous compassion. Establishing proper treatment goals alongside the Physiotherapist is a main priority that is effectively carried out through the aid of physical diagnoses whilst maintaining the patients clinical and statistical records on an everyday basis. I have always loved working with people, as this career encourages the display of my interpersonal skills, as well as my knowledge in science and its influence in our everyday lives.
