Beverley Kosuljandic, MCSP, MCPA
Bev graduated from King's College Hospital, London, UK. in 1980. She moved to Canada in 1982 and started in private practice in 1984. She became an owner of West Tenth Physiotherapy Clinic in 1986, which was renamed Jericho Sports and Orthopaedic Physiotherapy Clinic in 1996 when the clinic was moved to 4th and Alma.
Over the years, Bev has added to her repertoire of techniques by taking additional training in Orthopaedic Manual Therapy, Craniosacral Therapy and Advanced Visceral Manipulation, among others. Bev, like all physiotherapists, has created her own fusion of these different modalities and techniques to best treat her clients.
Bev has had the pleasure of helping many clients with pre-natal and post-natal care, helping them adjust to their changing shape and dynamics as well as the new demands made on their bodies. She is always thrilled to see new babies for a quick Craniosacral check once they arrive, after all, delivery can be hard on everyone concerned. She is also realistic about post-natal exercises, helping to fit them in to undoubtedly busy schedules.
Bev’s own 3 children are young adults now, but they continue to appreciate Mom’s professional skills in relation to their various sports activities and enjoy those benefits in their “weekend warrior” years.
Bev loves her work and is often heard exclaiming that she has the best job. She continues to learn from every client that she sees, even now 30+ years into her career.
