Hayley Kava



Hayley graduated with a Masters of Physical Therapy from the University of Western Ontario in 2013. Following graduation, Hayley has worked primarily in the outpatient orthopaedic setting. Hayley began her career at The Fowler Kennedy Sports Medicine Clinic in London Ontario, working with some of Canada’s finest orthopaedic surgeons, sports medicine physicians, PT’s and athletes.

Hayley moved to Fayetteville in 2014 where she worked in a traditional outpatient PT clinic treating a variety of patients including neurological conditions, falls prevention and mobility training, as well as sports physical therapy. Although she is relatively new in her PT career, Hayley was ready to explore more of what the PT “world” had to offer and has taken many post graduate courses in orthopaedic manual / manipulative therapy, The McKenzie Institute, and soft tissue release techniques. None of these courses have changed Hayley’s clinical practice or clinical outcomes quite like the Postural Restoration Institute has. Hayley is very excited to continue to learn and grow as a therapist with the mentorship of the many talented PRI clinicians at Sandhills Sports Performance.

Hayley’s personal background is as an athlete herself. Hayley played for 4 years of varsity volleyball at Syracuse University. As a Division 1 athlete playing through injuries and constantly compensating in order to attempt to preform better has certainly shaped Hayley as a clinician. This athletic background has helped Hayley appreciate the relationships between compensations, patterns and why we end up in pain. There is nothing she enjoys more than helping people back into the activities they love.

Outside of the clinic, Hayley tries to stay as active as possible enjoying hiking, biking as well as playing and coaching volleyball with AC Sandhills.
