Claire completed her Master of Science in Physiotherapy from the University of Alberta. Her interest in physiotherapy stemmed from several years of volunteer work in pediatric rehabilitation during her undergraduate degree in Kinesiology. The motivation and compassion of these young individuals inspired her to pursue a career where she could empower people to improve their wellbeing and achieve their goals.
During her career as a physiotherapist, Claire has worked with a variety of clients experiencing different musculoskeletal concerns. This includes everything from pain and injury after motor vehicle accidents to postural dysfunction and sport related injuries.
In treating chronic low back and sacroiliac pain, she developed a special interest in pelvic health. She realized that the impact of the pelvic floor on overall health is often under-appreciated, and the pelvic floor under-treated. Conditions such as pelvic pain, urinary incontinence, diastasis recti, pelvic organ prolapse and others can have a major impact on quality of life.
Her post-graduate certifications include advanced training in pelvic health for both female and male clients dealing with incontinence and pain, as well as advanced training in Intra-Muscular Stimulation (IMS).
As competitive ballet was an integral part of Claire’s youth, she appreciates the importance of taking the time to thoroughly assess a dysfunction, and learn about the occupations, activities, and hobbies of her clients to provide a comprehensive and individualized treatment plan. Claire now enjoys running, spinning, and has a keen interest in animal rehabilitation.
