MScPT, Dry Needling, Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST)
Hello! I’m Robyn. I graduated from the Master of Science in Physical Therapy program at the University of Alberta at the end of 2016. I obtained my Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology in 2014 and have been a CSEP certified personal trainer for 4 years.
My Passion for physiotherapy stems from my strong belief that exercise and movement are the best medicine for the body, mind, and soul. I truly enjoy building a human connection with my patients and guiding them through the process of achieving success. My treatment style is based on your individual needs and is grounded in therapeutic exercise, education, and manual therapy. My experiences with my personal fitness journey, Kinesiology education, and personal training have provided me solid evidence of the benefits of strength and conditioning in a rehabilitation plan. Whether you are coming to see me due to a specific injury, or your aim is to improve your mobility, health, and fitness, I’m here to find new ways to guide, motivate and inspire you to become the best version of yourself. I want to not only help you meet your goals, but also exceed them whenever possible.
To me, innovation is key to challenging the body to recover, adapt, and “move better”. I want to make your rehabilitation stimulating, something you want to do rather than something you have to do. This way, you are more likely to continue to be a “better mover” in the future. I enjoy working with all types of patients/athletes, but I have strong interest in sports injury rehabilitation and prevention. I plan to further my education throughout my physical therapy career by adding a variety of courses to my repertoire.
I have always had a strong passion for fitness and I love to help motivate others to move their body. I’m also a group fitness instructor at YEG Cycle and Runaway Workout Club. Outside of the clinic and studio, I’m a runner at heart. I have ran more 10 km races than I can count, 4 half marathons, and my current goal is to run a full marathon. In the past 6 years, I have also competed in 2 bodybuilding shows, 2 powerlifting meets and dabbled in Olympic Lifting and CrossFit. When I have downtime, I also enjoy reading, trying out great coffee shops and restaurants around Edmonton, and spending time with family and friends.
