Lorenda Hattingh (BPhyst)

Lorenda, a proud member of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, graduated from the University of Pretoria with a Bachelor of Physiotherapy in 1996.

She worked in the USA as a locum physical therapist in various outpatient and hospital settings from 1997 to 1999. She opened an active Orthopaedic and Sports injury clinic in Pretoria, South Africa until January 2002. Lorenda relocated to Canada in 2002 with her family where she started her Canadian adventure in Fort McMurray, AB. In 2005 she made Nanaimo and the Island home. In January of 2009, she founded Dynamic Focus Physiotherapy.

Through years of work experience and a keen desire to learn new skills, she developed an extensive and varied skill set. At her core she is a hands-on physiotherapist. Her treatment approach includes a thorough assessment of the whole person, manual therapy, varied therapeutic techniques, education  and functional exercise. She believes that an understanding of the injury empowers the patient to take an active role in their recovery journey.

Lorenda continues to add to her knowledge base with continued courses in Manual therapy, exercise prescription, Vestibular rehabilitation, advance training and certification courses in Cancer Rehabilitation, most recently she successfully completed her certification as a lymphedema therapist with Level III Vodder training.

When not at work she loves kayaking, hiking and running. If she is not camping or socializing with family and friends, she is cheering on her daughter at the soccer field or volleyball court. Lorenda also enjoys working on their hobby farm, Inniebos.
