Michelle Wong

Registered Physiotherapist

Michelle completed her Master of Science in Physical Therapy at the University of Toronto and her Bachelor of Health Sciences with a specialization in Rehabilitation Sciences at Western University.

Her passion for working with children of diverse abilities blossomed during her volunteer work at an after-school health promotion program, where she supported children in developing literacy, numeracy, and healthy living skills. Additionally, she dedicated her time to volunteering at children’s hospitals, striving to improve accessibility and participation in recreational events for children with a range of complex neurological and orthopaedic conditions. During her final clinical internship at Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital, Michelle developed skills to help children with acquired brain injuries achieve early developmental milestones, gross motor skills, and motor planning. Through these experiences, she uncovered her genuine passion for paediatric physiotherapy and the integration of creative, play-based activities.

Michelle is committed towards working with patients and families in a holistic manner to help them reach their goals. She recognizes the importance of collaboration between healthcare providers, families, and educators. Above all, she values compassion and empathy, taking the time to listen to each patient’s unique story to ensure that treatment plans are tailored to their specific needs and goals.

Beyond the clinic, Michelle enjoys exploring different coffee shops, hiking, playing badminton, volleyball, and spending quality time with family and friends.
