Ms. Baker runs the Exercise Rehabilitation Program (ERP) at Midtown, which is a physiotherapist-led exercise program that reinforces safe movement patterns and postures to get patients back to active lifestyles as quickly as possible. She treats low and mid back and neck pain, chronic and more acute as well as other musculoskeletal dysfunctions that are driven by non-optimal movement strategies. She enjoys working with her patients to educate them on their injuries, provide self-management tools and develop recovery plans that work for them.

When she’s not treating patients, Ms. Baker stays active by long-distance rowing. She has completed numerous half marathons and recently completed her second full marathon. She also loves to spend time with her family and escape the city.
