What is your role at the GSSMC?
What is your main area of practice?
Musculoskeletal injuries, including sport-related injuries. Having played soccer for over 20 years, I have a particular interest in soccer injuries. I am also part of the multidisciplinary knee injury clinics.
What did you study and where?
I graduated from the University of Alberta with a Masters of Science in Physical Therapy in 2011 and a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology in 2009. Throughout my years at the University of Alberta, I played varsity with the Pandas Soccer program and captained the team in my final year.
Since graduation, I’ve completed many courses that have provided me with a wide set of skills to help treat various injuries. These skills include functional dry needling/IMS, acupuncture, spinal manipulation, functional movement taping, and selective functional movement assessment.
Do you have any specific research interests & publications?
I blog about NFL injuries and other fun physio related topics on my website: www.yegphysiotherapy.com
Do you work specific days/hours?
Monday to Thursday evenings from 1:00pm to 7:00pm; Friday evenings from 1:00pm to 5:00pm; and every second Saturday from 8:00am to 1:00pm.
Are you affiliated with any teams?
I’m hoping to jump on board with FC Edmonton for next season.
What is your favourite way to stay active?
I love sports! Soccer has been my main passion since I was 6 years old and I’m still playing now! Hockey, basketball, biking, longboarding, and snowboarding are other activities I enjoy. Last year, I invested in a water rower (like the one on House of Cards!) and a bunch of exercise equipment so working out at home has also become part of my routine.
