Kate Moffett, Registered Physiotherapist


Early in life, Kate’s passion for movement flourished in dance classes with over 20 years of dance training. This evolved into a curiosity about how movement occurs and how it can be optimized, supported and improved. As a physiotherapist, she now has a strong focus on providing patient-centered care, ascertaining each individual’s unique biopsychosocial needs and personal goals. Whether the goal is recovering from injury, optimizing performance, enhancing training, managing training load, or maintaining and improving participation in physical activity or exercise, Kate is passionate about helping all individuals achieve their desired outcomes. She works with individuals of all ages who participate in any form of movement (dance, athletics, performers, musicians, or everyday movement enthusiasts!). In practice she utilizes a neurofunctional assessment approach, manual therapy skills, contemporary medical acupuncture, functional exercise prescription, and patient education to assist clients. 
Along with having experience, and an especially strong interest and investment in the treatment of dancers and performing artists, she has also worked with both recreational and elite athletes. Kate has a special interest in hip conditions in a young adult population and experience with post-operative arthroscopic hip procedures, staying up-to-date on current advancements in treatment and rehabilitation protocols. She also has experience and enjoys treating vestibular conditions such as BPPV (vertigo), vestibular hypofunction, and balance impairments. Cardiorespiratory assessment and treatment for the management of asthma with activity and rehabilitation of post-COVID symptoms including: shortness of breath, respiratory dysfunction, fatigue, weakness and deconditioning, myofascial rib, chest, upper back and neck pain, joint pain, coordination and balance and return to activity and achieving pre/post COVID exercise goals are also within her practice experience.   
Kate graduated with a Masters of Science in Physical Therapy from Queens University. Prior to that she completed both an Honours Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance and an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Kinesiology and Health Sciences at York University. She has completed McMaster University’s Contemporary Medical Acupuncture Certification as well as obtaining their Advanced Sports Neurofunctional Practitioner Certification. Kate holds membership with the Performing Arts Medicine Association and the International Association of Dance Medicine and Science. She is an active member of both the Canadian and Ontario Physiotherapy Associations.
When not living her passion assisting others in their movement goals, Kate enjoys staying active through dance classes, swimming, resistance training and golf, watching live dance and theatre, participating in continued education, and reading.
