Pleased to meet you!

Introducing your team...

Client Testimonial

5 weeks from the start of flag football season I was suffering from pain in my knees and back, which prevented me from even jogging. After 3 weeks of physio with Christine I was pain free and on the practice field, ready for the start of the season. Thanks so much!

Christine Gibbs PT, BS, MPT - Cayman Islands Physiotherapist

Christine graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Physiology from California State University, Fresno. She continued her education at CSUF and graduated Magna Cum Laude with great distinction, earning a Master of Physical Therapy degree in 2001. Throughout her career, she has worked in a variety of settings and has treated all body parts from head to toe. She enjoys fixing people from all levels of fitness and has ultimately found her niche in sports rehabilitation and gait biomechanics. She is trained in a wide variety of manual therapy techniques, custom orthotic fitting, and specializes in biomechanics of the lower extremity and foot function. Becoming a Cayman Islands Physiotherapist has enabled her to continue with her passion for fixing people in an ideal environment and A Step Ahead Physiotherapy, Cayman is the perfect place!

Christine is an avid golfer, runner, and triathlon enthusiast. Due to this passion for athletics, she is keen to help others restore their health and fitness to enable them to return to their passions. Christine moved to the Cayman Islands in 2002 and has embraced the island lifestyle with her husband, Gary, and 2 cats, Cleo and Harley. She is proud to have been selected to serve on the National Council for Persons with Disabilities. She is looking forward to making improvements in Grand Cayman for those living with disabilities.

Morgan's Bio Coming Soon!

Roma Oleksyn PT, BKin, BScPT - Cayman Islands Physiotherapist

Roma graduated from the University of Saskatchewan where she obtained degrees in Education, Kinesiology and Physiotherapy. Her work as a Physiotherapist has been diverse incorporating both the public and private sectors.

During Roma’s 15 year career, she has gained extensive experience treating trauma-induced sports injuries, repetitive strains, motor vehicle accidents, work-related injuries and in post-surgical rehabilitation. Her passion for treating sports related injuries enticed her to move from Canada to Grand Cayman to work with the team at A Step Ahead Physiotherapy.

Roma’s patients appreciate her thorough and personable care. Her approach to rehabilitation is to educate patients about their injuries, advise them on what they can do to facilitate their healing and apply the optimal Physiotherapy treatment. In an effort to continuously expand her skill set as a Physiotherapist, Roma pursues courses in manual therapy, prevention of running injuries and spinal stabilization. This past year saw her become a Certified Lymphedema Therapist and Gunn IMS practitioner. She is excited to provide both of these specialized treatments for patients in the Cayman Islands.

Roma’s passion for treating sports injuries stems from her own experience as an athlete. While at the University of Saskatchewan, she was a member of the Huskie Track & Field Team and competed nationally and internationally in the Heptathlon. While competing at an elite level, she gained an appreciation for the positive influence that Physiotherapy had on healing injuries and optimizing athletic performance.

Since hanging up her track spikes, she found a new passion in the sport of rowing and competed for the Calgary Rowing Club for seven seasons. Moving to the island has given Roma the opportunity to explore a variety of new activities. From paddle boarding to yoga on the beach - she is enjoying all the fun that island life has to offer.

Roma identifies with patient’s athletic goals and understands what motivates them. She is committed to providing Physiotherapy treatments that help her patients get back in the game!
