Sarah Leong

Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist

BSc, MPT

What is your background & training?

I received my customized Integrated Sciences Bachelor of Science (BSc) in neuroscience and physiology and my Master of Physical Therapy (MPT) from the University of British Columbia (UBC) Vancouver.

I’ve been an athlete (soccer, running and more!) and worked with athletes for years now. I’ve supervised the UBC varsity athletes’ tutoring program, and wrote the UBC athletics online orientation course, and I love talking about everyone’s favorite sport.

I use my BCSportsAid Certification, manual therapy and exercise while treating musculoskeletal/sports conditions. I also have a special interest in pelvic health and have taken pelvic floor physiotherapy courses to treat individuals of all genders with medical histories that include post-partum recovery, optimizing bowel and bladder function with neurological conditions, prolapse, pelvic pain, and urinary leakage with athletics.

Neurological Rehabilitation is another subspecialty that I am experienced in and this brings a further dimension to my physiotherapy approach in general.

I love customizing physiotherapy programs while keeping you as active as possible throughout.

What inspired you to choose this career path?

Physical activity and sport are ways that I’ve met incredible friends, maintained my mental health and unleashed my competitiveness. Physical therapy lets me use my specialized knowledge to educate on these topics that I love wholeheartedly. I also think it’s important to have discussions about health areas that can go overlooked – such as the pelvic floor.

Why do you choose to work at Treloar?

The atmosphere and mentorship – the physiotherapists at Treloar have a lot of experience, and we are always willing to discuss the newest technique we’ve found to help our clients.

What are you personally passionate about?

New experiences! Be that more physiotherapy knowledge (find me taking more advanced practice pelvic floor physiotherapy courses soon!), hiking/doing wildlife photography, trying to bake the latest COVID-19 bread trend, or researching and wearing sustainable fashion.

I also love a good inquiry in general – always feel free to ask me questions in-session, and I’ll be happy to spend time talking about the how and why.
