Ellen Wedemire MScPT, BKin completed her Masters of Science in Physiotherapy through the University of Alberta and graduated with a degree in Kinesiology from the University of Calgary prior to that.
As an athlete growing up in Calgary, Ellen was naturally drawn to her chosen field as she played any sport she could get involved in. Her favourite sport where she excelled was basketball and she’s enjoyed the transition from player to now youth basketball coach as well.
With her experience as an athlete, she fully understands the difficulty of being sidelined after an injury. Her passion lies in helping people recover from injuries and seeing them get back to doing the activities they love. With a special interest in manual therapy and exercise-based rehab she looks forward to serving her clients not only in recovery, but also with a strong focus on injury prevention.
Ellen is also trained in pelvic floor physiotherapy, and has completed many courses including: PT for incontinence, urgency and prolapse, pelvic pain, trauma-informed care, caesarean section rehab, taping for pregnancy, post-natal rehab and exercise, and more! Prior to becoming a physiotherapist, Ellen heard the stories of many post-natal women dealing with pelvic floor symptoms on a day to day basis, especially stress incontinence. This lead her to pursue a career in pelvic floor physiotherapy, where she can help both men and women return to living life symptom free, and/or learn how to manage symptoms independently on a day to day basis. As many people tend to avoid talking about pelvic floor issues in everyday life, Ellen is passionate about providing a space for people to speak about their experiences, and learn about their bodies as they move toward their goals.
