Cara McDougall
Lab Assistant

Cara graduated with a Masters of Physiotherapy from the University of Saskatchewan in 2013 and she obtained a Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Psychology in 2007. After graduating, she practiced as a Registered Physiotherapist in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in a private orthopaedic clinic before moving to Ontario to continue her career.

 

Cara has a particular interest in and passion for pelvic health physiotherapy. She has engaged in extensive continuing education courses and attended international conferences to further her professional development. Her training has included courses on pelvic pain, urogenital dysfunction, pre/postnatal care, and the fitting of pessaries. In 2018, she founded Toronto Pessary Clinic, the first private pessary clinic in Toronto. Since that time, she has devoted her practice to assessing and fitting women who could benefit from the use of a pessary, a device that is used to help treat certain pelvic health conditions, including pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence.

 

Cara approaches health from a holistic perspective and is committed to providing individualized, empowering, and compassionate care.
