Monica

Monica Garcia MSc Physiotherapy – BSc with Major in Human Kinetics

Prior to qualifying as a physiotherapist Monica trained in Canada as a kinesiologist, obtaining a first class honours degree in Human Kinetics in 2010 at the University of Guelph in Ontario.
Kinesiology is the study and analysis of movement. It focuses on achieving proper alignment and therefore biomechanics in order to eliminate pain and dysfunction through specific exercise prescription.

Monica explains: ‘When someone is injured or in pain it is vital that they are thoroughly and expertly assessed before any exercise is prescribed. Time is then taken to explain and practise the exercises under close and regular supervision as even slight errors can make the problem worse or even produce a new one.’
As many of our patients report from previous experiences being given a generic sheet of exercises for example ‘back pain’ without proper assessment or diagnosis is at best ineffective and at worse dangerous and painful.

Monica worked for 3 years as a kinesiologist in the private sector in Canada helping people be free of pain and return to their normal activities using specific and specialised exercises and advice.

Working closely alongside the physiotherapy team she soon realised that she wanted to extend her knowledge of musculoskeletal problems and so came to the UK to train as a physiotherapist, gaining an MSc in Physiotherapy from Brunel University.

Monica says that by combining her two areas of expertise of physiotherapy and kinesiology she can ‘improve a patient’s quality of life and has the dedication, motivation, and qualifications to provide excellent service for each of her patients to achieve their goal.’

She enjoys travelling and has backpacked extensively in Asia, Europe, and South America and finds her traveling experiences have taught her about different cultures, improving her communication and social skills and helping her further connect with and understand her clients’ goals and ambitions.

Originally from Guatemala Monica speaks Spanish and English and has a basic understanding of Portuguese.

She is looking forward to settling in London and enjoying another new cultural experience!

Monica is also trained in pregnancy massage and offers this relaxing and beneficial experience at our Leyton clinic.

Spanish Translation

Antes de calificar como fisioterapeuta, Monica se formó en Canadá como kinesióloga, obteniendo un Bachillerato en Ciencias con una especialidad en Kinesiología con honores de primera clase en el 2010 en la Universidad de Guelph en Ontario.
Kinesiología es el estudio y análisis del movimiento humano. Se enfoca en lograr la alineación adecuada durante el movimiento para eliminar la disfunción y por lo tanto el dolor. Esto se hace por medio de un análisis biomecánico y ejercicios especificos para el problema causante.

Mónica explica:
‘Cuando alguien se lastima o siente dolor es vital que se lo evalúe minuciosa y expertamente antes de prescribir cualquier ejercicio. Luego se toma el tiempo para explicar y practicar los ejercicios bajo una supervisión cercana y regular, ya que incluso los errores leves pueden empeorar el problema o incluso producir uno nuevo.’
‘La distribución de una hoja genérica de ejercicio, por ejemplo, “dolor de espalda” sin una evaluación adecuada, es, en el mejor de los casos, ineficaz y, en el peor, peligrosa y dolorosa.’

Mónica trabajó durante 3 años como kinesióloga en el sector privado en Canadá, ayudando a las personas a no tener dolor y retomando sus actividades normales con ejercicios y consejos específicos y especializados.

Trabajando en estrecha colaboración con el equipo de fisioterapia, ella pronto se dio cuenta de que quería ampliar su conocimiento de los problemas musculoesqueléticos y así llegó al Reino Unido para formarse como fisioterapeuta y obtener una maestría en Fisioterapia de la Universidad de Brunel.

Mónica dice que al combinar sus dos áreas de experiencia en fisioterapia y kinesiología, puede “mejorar la calidad de vida de un paciente ya que tiene la dedicación, la motivación y las calificaciones para brindar un servicio excelente a cada uno de sus pacientes para lograr su objetivo”.

A ella le gusta viajar y lo ha hecho extensamente por Asia, Europa y América del Sur y cuenta que sus experiencias de viaje le han enseñado sobre diferentes culturas, mejorando sus habilidades comunicativas y sociales ayudándola a conectarse aún más y comprender los objetivos y las ambiciones de sus clientes.
Originalmente de Guatemala, Mónica habla español e inglés y tiene un conocimiento básico del portugués.
Ella esta muy contenta de poder venir a trabajar a Londres y disfrutar de una nueva experiencia cultural!
