Her interest in bridging together physiology, biomechanics, and neuroscience she continued her education and completed another 4 years graduating from Life University as a Doctor of Chiropractic. Her main passion is clinical neurology and has undergone 20 years of extensive training in post graduate clinical neurology.
She has successfully completed the 3 year postgraduate degree in Clinical Neurology under the guidance of world renown Ted Carrick who treated Sid Crosby for his concussion.

Brittany Becker M.HK, B.HK (Honors)
Brittany began her interest in rehabilitation while studying Human Kinetics at the University of Windsor. While completing her undergrad, she volunteered her time working with those with varying physical and mental impairments. Brittany volunteered in the occupational rehabilitation department at Windsor Regional Hospital where she learned about a multitude of clinical populations such as stroke, MS, spinal cord injury and cardiac arrest. Once finishing her Bachelors of Human Kinetics, Brittany went on to complete her Masters of Human Kinetics. During this time, Brittany focused her research on the aging population and in particular, stroke rehabilitation. Her major thesis involved determining the effects of whole-body vibration on strength, balance and mobility for stroke patients. Brittany was also involved with the Adaptive Physical Exercise research group at the University of Windsor. The APE program allows for adults with autism to participate in exercise and sports.

Bridget Ribau R.Kin, H.B.Sc Kin & PE
Bridget developed her interest in neurological conditions while studying Kinesiology and Physical Education at Wilfrid Laurier University, focusing her courses on neuropsychology and neurophysiology. At Laurier, she was an executive on Team Up Against Concussions, giving concussion awareness and education presentations to young students and athletes while training fellow students to do the same. Bridget also conducted a research study on the effectiveness of a concussion education presentation on young athletes as her thesis project. Throughout this time, she led exercise classes for participants with Parkinson’s Disease and other movement disorders and assisted with Parkinson’s Disease research at the Movement Disorders Research and Rehabilitation Centre.
After graduating with her Bachelor’s degree, Bridget completed the Brain Disorders Management certificate program at Mohawk College where she furthered her knowledge of a variety of conditions, from Alzheimer’s to ASD, and the effects that these disorders can have on a person’s life and on their loved ones. She has since worked as a Rehabilitation Therapist on a Neurobehavioral Acquired Brain Injury unit, supporting patients with ABIs and a variety of mental health conditions such as FND to maximize their independence upon their return to the community.
