Rachel Postma, Kinesiologist
Rachel Postma graduated with a BSc degree in Kinesiology from Brock University in June 2019. Rachel offers Active Exercise Rehabilitation to our patients at Lake Street Chiropractic, working with Dr. Geron to create exercise programs that are suited to treat the patient’s unique problem areas and concerns. Her goal is to bring back full function following an injury through restoring muscle strength, endurance, and improved flexibility. Her programs are created to be performed in the clinic but also include an at-home program to allow the patient to gain ownership over their own health and wellness.
Rachel has extensive experience in working with individuals with various neurological disorders like spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, stroke etc., as well as older aged adults, individuals who have suffered a motor vehicle accident, and workplace injury victims. Rachel believes that one commonality for all individuals is that movement heals, and she enjoys finding the right modality to allow that into each patient’s routine.
