Peach Physiotherapy welcomes Paediatric Physiotherapist Kate (Randall) Peach!
Kate is a registered Physiotherapist (PT) specializing in Pediatrics at Peach Physiotherapy & Wellness Centre. Her journey in paediatrics began at Western University where she completed her Master of Science degree in Rehabilitation Sciences. At Western, Kate’s research was focused on balance tests in children with cerebral palsy. After spending time with pediatric PTs and the energetic and charismatic children, Kate knew she wanted to work as a pediatric therapist and pursued a Master of Science degree in Physical Therapy at Queen’s University. Kate has been working with children since graduating in 2014 and loves every minute of it!
Kate is passionate about her clients. The child’s and family’s goals guide Kate in her treatment approach, which can include various manual therapy techniques and home exercise/activity programs. Therapy sessions are uniquely created for each child and includes one-on-one time with Kate. Kate promotes education and awareness and encourages parent involvement in each session.
Kate thrives on learning and has taken post-graduate courses in the following areas: early motor development, neurodevelopmental treatment, orthopaedic management of cerebral palsy, Cuevas Medek Exercises, specialized adaptive equipment (eg: walkers, standers, wheelchairs), toe walking, and more! Kate is currently registered to take her first Pelvic Health course in the new year and is excited to be able to offer this area of practice at Peach Physiotherapy too.
When Kate’s not working, you can find her getting sweaty at Blairs’ Bootcamp, singing made-up songs with her daughter Isla, playing fetch with her goldendoodle Maizy, and enjoying quality time (or just watching Netflix) with her husband Steve! Kate’s current favourite show: Life in Pieces!
