Canadian physiotherapist and
professional rehabilitation provider Krissy Dooling has joined the team at
After five years of practice in
Canada, Krissy will now be sharing her expertise and providing progressive
physiotherapy and rehabilitation services at the newly expanded ChiroSpa Clinic
at Rankin’s Plaza off Eastern Avenue in George Town.
For the past four years, Krissy had
a once in a lifetime opportunity to work for Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital,
one of the top research and treatment rehabilitation hospitals in North
“The one of a kind experience I
gained at Glenrose Hospital has given me a wide range of specialties. I am
extremely interested in showing the athletes of Cayman my unique approach to
athletic type injuries,” states Krissy. “I look forward to assisting all kinds
of patients, from athletes, to individuals who have had joint repair surgeries
to people who need help managing their aches and pains.”
ChiroSpa Clinic has expanded to
accommodate the enhanced services now offered. Offering chiropractic,
physiotherapy and rehabilitation services under one roof makes ChiroSpa Clinic
quite rare for Grand Cayman. “I am very excited to be working alongside Dr.
Rob; with our team approach I am confident we will go beyond expectations to
provide quality care to the Island’s residents and visitors. We have designed a
therapy gym that will allow us to provide patients with progressive rehabilitation
exercise programs, as well as a number of new therapeutic modalities to go
along with the success of our Laser therapy.”
Born in Newfoundland, Canada,
Krissy obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Kinesiology (the study of the
human body) from St. Francis Xavier University in 1998. In 2003 she earned her Master’s of Science in
Physiotherapy from the University of Alberta. Shortly after graduating, Krissy
secured her position at the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital in Edmonton
Alberta. The Glenrose Hospital is the
largest freestanding rehabilitation centre in North America; it has developed
an international reputation for excellence in key areas of complex
rehabilitation and specialised geriatrics treatments.
“Working at the Glenrose was a
remarkable experience. I worked next to world class surgeons and learned from
many of my mentors in the physiotherapy field. I am eager to bring this
experience to the community here in Grand Cayman.”
Krissy specialised in post surgical
orthopaedic rehabilitation, but also has experience with stroke, brain injury,
rheumatoid arthritis, amputee rehabilitation, spinal cord and paediatric
Krissy is also an accomplished
“I feel I have really great insight
into athletic injuries, as I have faced many of these obstacles myself during
my marathon training. It is always easier to treat an injury if you have
experienced it firsthand. I know how important it is to get athletes back on
the playing field as quickly as possible.”
When Krissy is not training for an
upcoming marathon, she enjoys playing soccer and listening to live music. She
is interested in being involved in the Cayman sporting community as both a
physical therapist and as an athlete.
“I ran the NYC Marathon last year
in a time of 2:58.39. I was the second Canadian female to cross the line. I am
very interested in running the marathon here on the Island on December 5. The
winning time was just over three hours last year, so if I can manage the heat,
I think I can do very well.”
Look for Krissy as she participates
in the Cayman marathon as well as the Flag Football Field or Rugby Pitch as she
volunteers her services.
