“My own knee surgery and rehab pushed me in ways I’ve never been challenged before. This experience gave me a strong understanding and empathy for what you’re going through. It’s no fun to live life restricted with mobility issues, pain and rehabilitation needs.
I opened LV Physiotherapy to serve our Niagara community, helping people live life again. From our amazing staff to clean, state-of-the-art equipment and facilities, we offer the best care possible to help you achieve your goals.”
Lisa, a busy mom of one, is an avid athlete who enjoys cycling, rollerblading, dancing and touch football and training for triathlons. And her binge-worthy tv show of choice is Grey’s Anatomy.
“When I was 17 years old, I was accepted into the National Circus School in Montreal but decide to pursue my education at McMaster University instead.”
Lisa Miele (née Vandenberk) has many years of experience working in the health care system at Hotel Dieu Shaver Health and Rehabilitation Centre. She also gained experience working in private practice clinics and providing home care in the Niagara Region. Lisa graduated from McMaster University with an Honours Bachelor of Kinesiology degree and a Masters of Science in Physiotherapy degree.

Lisa underwent an ACL reconstruction and rehabilitation herself in 2015. Through this process, she has gained even more of an understanding and empathy toward individuals with mobility issues, pain and rehabilitation needs. Lisa has integrated back into the sports and hobbies she loves including cycling, rollerblading, dancing and touch football and now enjoys training for Triathlons. Lisa is very excited to have welcomed her daughter in September 2020.
