Leona Ham

Pelvic Floor and Orthopedic Physiotherapist

Leona has a sincere and empathetic approach towards all her patients. Exercise and activity are important to her, and she understands the frustrations her patients have when their favourite activities are limited due to pelvic health issues or other injuries. Because of this,
she created her own practice operating as Finishline Physiotherapy with a mission of “helping individuals maintain an active life.”

Leona has years of pelvic floor experience treating women, men and children.  The other part of her practice is seeing patients with orthopedic challenges.  What a gift to find a physio who does both!

We can’t forget to mention that Leona is also a certified Complete Concussion Management™ Practitioner and offers baseline concussion testing for individuals and teams. Concussion care is available for both chronic and acute concussions.

Fun Fact

Leona loves all the sports. Her greatest achievement in sports have been as a therapist, but she did play competitive badminton for Mount Royal College in the late 90’s and was awarded the team MVP during her 2nd year of competing.

About Leona
