Bella Levi - Resident Physiotherapist (Pelvic Health)
Bella Levi, HBAKin, MScPT
Bella graduated with a Master's of Science in Physical Therapy degree from the University of Toronto and a Specialized Honour's Bachelor of Arts in Kinesiology degree from York University.
Bella has experience working with a range of patients from her clinical experiences at St. Michael’s Hospital, Toronto General Hospital, and various physiotherapy clinics.
With a special interest in pelvic health and neurological conditions, Bella has completed post-graduate courses in these areas, including a post-graduate certification in LSVT BIG for Parkinson’s rehabilitation.
Bella is experienced in treating stress urinary incontinence, urge incontinence/ overactive bladder, fecal incontinence, constipation, pelvic organ prolapse, erectile dysfunction, as well as treating individuals before and after cesarean and prostatectomy surgeries.
“Did you know that more than half of individuals with Parkinson’s have some form of bladder, bowel or sexual dysfunction, as do many people with other neurological conditions? At One Step Ahead Mobility I treat patients with a range of pelvic health and neurological conditions, and the overlap between them. I am excited to help you address these important and sensitive issues. "
Bella is dedicated to helping people return to doing what is important to them. She values listening to her patients’ concerns and goals, and guiding them through the rehabilitative journey using education, therapeutic movement, and hands-on/manual therapy.
Bella also values research and writing. Bella has co-authored a research publication and a number of easy-to-understand blogs and education tools for Embodia about common health conditions and injuries to help patients understand their conditions.
When Bella is not at the clinic, she enjoys practicing yoga, going for daily walks, and spending time with her family.
