Geneviève Renaud

Registered Bilingual Physiotherapist
Diploma in Sport Physiotherapy

Geneviève, a native of Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia, is a registered physiotherapist with a special interest in sport rehabilitation and enjoys treating athletes of all ages. She is one of few therapists in the Ottawa region with both a post-graduate Diploma in Sport Physiotherapy and in Advanced Manual and Manipulative Therapy. These certifications are a testament to her commitment to a high standard of care.

Physical activity has always been an important part of Geneviève’s life.  She grew up as a competitive athlete and continues to stay active. When she is not at work, Geneviève enjoys weight training, yoga and cooking. She also enjoys going running, snowshoeing and cycling with her husband (when they are not travelling the world together!) Her active lifestyle reflects in her treatment and she enjoys helping her patients return to their favourite activities and sports.
