Alexie Michaud, best known as Lex, is a Certified Athletic Therapist working with our physiotherapy team in Oakville. She is a graduate of the Bachelor of Applied Health Science in Athletic Therapy at Sheridan College, and is a current student at the Ontario Institute of Health and Technology completing her Diploma in Massage Therapy. Following her registration, Lex’s goal is to complete the acupuncture program as well as specialization in sacropelvic care.
Lex enjoys staying active by participating in local competitive leagues, but also hikes everywhere with her dog, Tank. With a passion for sport and a love for the outdoors, Athletic Therapy was the best possible fit; combining on-site emergency care for various activities as well as prevention and rehabilitation to enhance physical performance.
As a result of her experience, Lex has a strong understanding of injury prevention and rehabilitation. She uses various techniques, including soft tissue release, joint mobilization, lymphatic drainage and pain modulation in combination with a personal exercise plan to restore body’s normal and optimal function.
