Denise knew she wanted to be a physiotherapist since high school. She has been passionate about her career ever since.

She believes that the patient is best served through collaboration with sports medicine doctors, orthopedic surgeons, family doctors and other allied health providers.

She obtained her combined physical therapy/physical education degrees from the University of Saskatchewan in 1996/1997. Denise worked in Saskatoon and then in Calgary at the Lindsay Park/Talisman Centre where she treated recreational athletes, National athletes and Pro athletes. At Sunshine Physio she continues to treat this array of athletes.

Denise has also worked in the school setting with children with disabilities and paediatrics offering early intervention and treatment. She no longer goes into the school setting, however routinely treats babies for tortocollis (head shape deformities) and paediatric neuromuscular issues.

The majority of her early career was in the sports setting. This included working with local, National and International teams. The highlight of those experiences was traveling as the team physio for the Canadian Men’s Rugby Team to Ireland.

Denise has taken her levels and competency exams in Orthopaedics. She has passed the oral and written component of the Manual and Manipulative therapy (Part A) from the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Therapy.

Denise has been involved in pursuing a level of excellence for her dear patients. In 1996, she obtained her Advanced Massage Therapy, in 1997 achieved her Personal Fitness and Lifestyle consultant, and in 2010 received her Diploma in Sports Physical Therapy. The diploma in sport medicine is the highest level awarded. This takes years of studying, course work and hands on work. She obtained perfect marks: presently there are a little over 100 physiotherapists across Canada with this level of distinction. She maintains this distinguished designation with continued required course and field work.

Denise suffered from a persistent, nagging pain for a couple of years in her right ovary. She found tremendous relief from Traditional Chinese Medicine, so in 2000 went to the University of Alberta to receive that designation from the renowned Dr. Steven Aung. In 2007 she took further courses in the use of acupuncture needles and obtained GUNN IMS (Intramuscular Stimulation).

After the birth of two large babies (10 pounds each), Denise took a variety of courses in women’s health to treat pelvic floor weakness, incontinence and pain (2004 – 2014). She has taken numerous courses to help females stay active and prevent pelvic floor issues such as incontinence and prolapses. She has expanded that knowledge to help men as well who have issues with prostate cancer and pelvic floor pain (2014).

In 2010 Denise was in a massive head on collision on the highway where she suffered numerous injuries, including fracturing (breaking) her back, foot, numerous torn ligaments, and suffering a serious concussion. She loves treating chronic pain of the spine. She has successfully returned to an active lifestyle through excellent physio, sports medicine and yoga. She loves working with a multidisciplinary team like she had, to provide an appropriate solution to ongoing musculoskeletal problems, which may involve providing referral for prolotherapy evaluation/treatment, or interventional radiology procedures; as well as providing physiotherapy management before, during and after such procedures. As well, she firmly believes in an active home exercise program or coming to her numerous classes that she offers if more guidance is needed or to ensure doing the exercises in a safe manner.

She has developed a personal interest in treatment of concussions and has taken numerous courses in the evaluation and treatment of concussions over her entire career. As research and treatment has changed dramatically over the course of her career, she continues to take courses to stay on the leading edge of what is new to help her dear patients.

She shares her passion for physio, sports medicine, energy medicine and yoga at the clinic and through the numerous classes she offers. The Core Yoga classes are designed to bridge the gap between physio treatments and to return to an active, pain free lifestyle. She has been teaching classes on and off for over 30 years, changing and enhancing them as she develops as a student and teacher. See her yoga bio and class info for more information.

Something that will change healthcare and make us more aware of our gut microbiome

Here is something that will change healthcare and make us more aware of our gut microbiome

This data will change healthcare and make us more aware of our gut microbiome

Progenabiome, a physician-owned genetic sequencing laboratory, found cutting-edge data on Clostridium difficile (C.diff), a disease burdening 500,000+ Americans yearly. They will present a validated, verified, and reproduced C.diff Assay at The American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) 2019 Annual Scientific Meeting on Monday, Oct. 28, 2019 in San Antonio.

Progenabiome, a genetic sequencing laboratory of the gut flora. Leading the way into the FUTURE by understanding the microbiome NOW. The quest for a new healthcare revolution!
Progenabiome, a genetic sequencing laboratory of the gut flora. Leading the way into the FUTURE by understanding the microbiome NOW. The quest for a new healthcare revolution!

“This data will change healthcare and make us more aware of our gut microbiome,” said Dr. Sabine Hazan-Steinberg, CEO and Founder of Progenabiome. “2500 years later, we’re proving Hippocrates right…everything starts in the gut.”

Dr. Hazan, a Malibu-based gastroenterologist, has 20+ years experience leading clinical trials, many for C.diff. When trials failed, she used fecal microbiota transplant (FMT), following advice from friend Dr. Neil Stollman, gastroenterologist at UCSF and East Bay Center for Digestive Health. She also followed great work by Dr. Thomas Borody, FMT pioneer and Centre for Digestive Diseases founder. Success post-FMT for recurrent C.diff suggested the microbiome holds many answers.

Knowing the C.diff microbe has existed for 10 million years, she questioned why it now takes 50,000 lives annually.

Dr. Sydney Finegold, infectious disease specialist who researched Autism/microbiome for 50 years, recommended she acquire a next-generation sequencer. When he passed in 2018, his books went to Hazan, hoping she could continue his legacy.

In January, she joined pathologist Dr. Brad Barrows and scientific director Dr. Andreas Papoutsis to launch Progenabiome. Their first run found non-toxigenic C.diff in every sample, including those not diagnosed with the disease. Preliminary data shows the C.diff microbe is not transmitted hand-to-mouth as previously believed. It is already in the gut and becomes toxic when something ingested triggers it.

Progenabiome will present this groundbreaking discovery at ACG 2019 (Poster 1027 / Booth 1931) and the 7th Annual International C.diff Conference November 6-7, 2019 in St. Louis.

Progenabiome is investigating the role of the gut flora in various diseases through 11 studies overlooked by New England IRB. Progenabiome’s Mission: to better understand, prevent, and treat diseases by analyzing specific genetic codes of 40 trillion gut microbes. Dr. Hazan believes the art of Medicine lies in our ability to see outside the box and recognize that all microbes and humans are unique.
