Hi! My name is Kirstin. I’m originally from Saskatchewan, where I completed my Bachelor of Kinesiology from the University of Regina while playing for the Cougars Women’s Volleyball Team. I made the move to Edmonton to complete my Master’s of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of Alberta. My drive to practice physiotherapy began through my own involvement with sport and injury. I was able to see first-hand how physiotherapy can get people back to baseline and better. This grew as I gained experience as a personal and group fitness trainer and started to be a part of positive changes. These experiences made me confident in pursuing a career that blends these facets of rehab, function, performance, and connecting with others.
I enjoy working with patients of all ages and injuries and value the relationships I build with patients. My treatment approach involves a collaborative partnership with my patients, emphasizing self-autonomy and movement. I strive to help patients understand their injuries or pain so they can take the primary role in their own recovery and implement a treatment plan individualized to their lifestyle. I incorporate a combination of education, exercise, and manual therapy to make a long-term impact on your current rehab and your long-term performance. No matter your age, injury, or fitness level, I’m excited to help you hit your goals.
In my free time, you can find me playing spikeball, volleyball, golfing, or attempting to play squash. Since moving to Edmonton, I’ve become a keen Oilers fan and spend many game days watching and playing board games with friends.
