Sandra Curwin PT

BSc (PT), MSc (Kine), PhD (Kine)

Dr. Curwin is originally from Moncton, New Brunswick. After studying physiotherapy at Dalhousie, she started one of the first private physiotherapy practices in Atlantic Canada in 1979, before returning to graduate school at Dalhousie (MSc in Kinesiology, Biomechanics) and UCLA (PhD in Kinesiology, Connective Tissue Physiology).

Dr. Curwin's clinical experience and collaboration with colleague Dr. William Stanish led them to develop the "eccentric exercise program" for repetitive strain injuries that is now the accepted standard worldwide for treating chronic tendinopathies such as tennis elbow and Achilles tendinopathy.

Dr. Curwin has held academic positions in both the United States and Canada. She is a licensed physiotherapist in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and California and is an active physiotherapist at the Dal PT Clinic.
