Alex Bergess

ADVENTUROUS | RESILIENT | IMAGINATIVE

Alex is our “Canadian from abroad physio” – after completing her Bachelors of Kinesiology at the University of Calgary, she packed her bags & moved down under. Alex obtained her Masters of Physiotherapy from the University of Sydney but wasn’t quite ready to return to the frozen maple Motherland. She spent a few years working at one of the leading physiotherapy clinics in Sydney, Australia. Here, Alex was able to work alongside & learn from the team of running experts. Alex has kept up on her running knowledge through continued coursework, research articles, & podcasts – all with the goal of how to deliver the best care to her running patients.

Alex’s sports background has transitioned throughout her life – which is something that she loves because it’s always so refreshing to learn a new activity! Alex grew up playing soccer, badminton, & figure skating. She played field hockey in high school & later coached for a few years. During her undergrad degree, she kept busy with ultimate frisbee & a single season of flag football (she’s willing to try anything once!). When she lived in Australia, she quickly picked up that “footy” could mean at least five different sports, but she is more partial to AFL/Aussie Rules rather than Rugby Union or Rugby League. While swimming in the ocean pools was probably Alex’s favorite new activity, a close second would be barefoot bowls. Despite all the variation, a steady constant for Alex has been hiking & camping. She loves getting out & exploring nature.

While her passions are treating runners, adventurers, & lower limb injuries, much like Alex’s background, her clinical experience also has an element of variation. Alex has provided coverage for the Australian productions of The Wizard of Oz & Chicago; some of her patients have gone on to compete in Australia Ninja Warrior; & she ended up as the go-to gal for a local Krav Maga club. So no matter what you love doing, if you can’t participate due to an injury or you just want to be better at participating, book in to see Alex. Her active-based style of physiotherapy will get you back on track to smashing your goals!
