Taking A ProActive Approach To Physiotherapy In West Kelowna

West Kelowna Physiotherapists, Marie Dick and Jenn Flaman created ProActive Physiotherapy with a simple vision in mind.
After years of seeing and treating countless injuries, Marie and Jenn came to recognize that the best approach to injury prevention and rehabilitative care was a proactive one!
Both long time residents of West Kelowna, a natural wonder nestled in the heart of the picturesque Okanagan Valley, Marie and Jenn are both active and enjoy spending time with their respective families outdoors. With a deep-rooted appreciation for living life without limitations, the two accomplished physios are committed to providing proactive and progressive patient care to assist in the recovery from painful conditions and injuries, regaining each patient’s optimum, pain-free range of motion!
When it comes to injury recover, great physiotherapy isn’t just about being reactive, it’s about being Proactive!

Marie Nyland Dick B.Sc.P.T.,C.A.F.C.I.

Registered Physiotherapist – Certified in Acupuncture

Marie was born and raised in the beautiful small town of Breim in Norway, and decided to pursue a carrier in Physiotherapy after graduating High School. She started her Physiotherapy degree at the University of Sydney, Australia. Being bitten by the travel bug, she took a little break from her studies to do some travelling though Asia, Australia and Europe before finishing her degree in Sweden in 2005. She then made the big move to Canada and the beautiful Okanagan, and has enjoyed working in private practise in West Kelowna ever since.

Since graduating, Marie has become certified in Acupuncture, Gunn IMS (intramuscular stimulation) and completed multiple Manual Therapy courses. During the course of her carrier, Marie has worked as a clinical instructor for UBC School of Rehabilitation, Team Physiotherapist for the Westside Warriors BCHL Hockey team, and volunteered in multiple sports events and for teams in the valley, including the Okanagan Sun Football team, the Center of Gravity Pro-Beach Volleyball tournament, BC Summer Games and Volleyball Provincials.

Marie enjoys treating a multitude of injuries and conditions and has a strong interest in sports rehabilitation. From her early teens she has had a passion for sports, participating and competing on a high level in track and field and volleyball in Europe (and paying many visits to her local physiotherapist!). When she is not at work, she enjoys spending time with her family and staying active through outdoor and indoor sports and recreation.

Marie and Jenn invite you to come visit ProActive Physiotherapy for the exceptional care their patients have come to expect.
