BEING IN PAIN CAN BE ROUGH

But I can get you back to what you love

Physiotherapy with a personal touch

What's stopping you?

Pain-free movement and activity can elude you, but I'm here to help 

Staying healthy can be hard work and sometimes things get in the way. It often starts with an annoying ache or pain: the stiff and achey low back, the lingering knee pain, the painful shoulder at night.

These warning signs can turn into bigger problems if not taken care of, robbing us from doing what we love. 

It's nice to meet you

i'm MIRA AND I'M AN EDMONTON PHYSIOTHERAPIST

My name is Mira and I provide physiotherapy treatment to patients in Edmonton in the Whyte Avenue, Bonnie Doon, University of Alberta and surrounding areas. I offer treatment at the Whyte Ave Sport and Spine sports injury clinic. I’ve been treating patients since 2008 and have helped countless people, from young to old, feel and move better.

I became a physiotherapist for two reasons: I love the complexity of the human body and I love helping people. 

Being active is not just something I encourage, I live it. I get out and enjoy many sports, including running, cycling, yoga, scuba diving and snowboarding.

On my off hours, you can often find me walking Whyte Avenue or the River Valley carrying my camera. I love capturing moments. Plus you'll never know what or who you'll see!

Mira is very knowledgeable and skilled with physiotherapy and takes the time to get to know you and your injury / physio needs. Mira helped me through a debilitating back injury, and gave me the tools to be able to maintain a functional life.

I am a professional dancer who lives in New York City, though I am from Edmonton... I found Mira who treated and successfully got rid of my pain and my injury. She is extremely professional, thorough, friendly, and truly cares about finding a positive outcome for her patients...

My treatment manifesto

Core values I bring to your pHysiotherapy experience

Quality care

I believe that it takes time to understand your body. Rather than treating a number of patients simultaneously, I see only one patient at a time which means a better experience for you.

Find the root problem

I take the time to understand your history and perform a thorough physical exam to figure out the real source of your pain.

Become your advocate

When we work together, I go to bat for you. From advocating for you with your doctor to connecting with other healthcare providers, I work to make sure your recovery is the best one possible.

I help people feel and move better.

Your situation is unique and so is your treatment plan

I follow a thorough process with each of my patients

Your first visit

We talk in-depth about your problem and thoroughly evaluate your movements, muscles, joints and nervous tissue.

I'll answer your most pressing questions about

  • What is causing your pain
  • What you (the patient) can do for it
  • How I (the physio) can help you
  • How long it will take to get better

You'll come away with a clear understanding of your diagnosis and a plan for recovery.

  • Pain science education
  • Advanced manual therapy
  • Corrective exercises
  • Proprioceptive taping
  • IMS (Intramuscular Stimulation)
  • Running gait analysis & correction

Questions & Answers

Here are the common questions my patients ask

What conditions do you treat?

Here is a small sample of the conditions I treat.  If you don't see your issue on the list, don't hesitate to send me a message.

  • Sciatica (e.g., disc herniation)
  • Sports injuries (e.g., runner's knee, muscle tear, ligament sprain)
  • Spinal stiffness & pain (e.g., back pain and neck pain)
  • Knee pain (e.g., patello-femoral pain, ACL tear, meniscus tear)
  • Motor vehicle accidents - MVA (e.g., whiplash)
  • Foot pain & ankle pain (e.g., Plantar fasciitis, ankle sprain, achilles tendonitis, bunions)
  • Shoulder pain (e.g., rotator cuff dysfunction, frozen shoulder)
  • Hip pain (e.g., arthritis, impingement)
  • Wrist pain (e.g., carpal tunnel syndrome)
  • Elbow pain (e.g., tennis elbow, golfer's elbow)
How long does it take to get better?

Once I've had an opportunity to personally understand and assess your problem, I'll be able to give you a timeframe for expected recovery. If we don't feel that progress is happening as expected I will work with you to understand the best course of action.

Do I need a doctor's referral?

No. Physiotherapy is direct access. This means that you don't need a referral to come and see me. However, I'd recommend checking with your extended health provider as they may still require a doctor's note to approve your insurance coverage.

What is IMS?
IMS or Intramuscular Stimulation is a technique developed by Dr. Gunn, a Vancouver medical doctor. He developed a treatment approach that uses acupuncture needles to address dysfunctional nerves and muscles. When nerves get irritated (neuropathic pain) through compression along the spine, the muscles associated with those nerves become irritated. The irritation results in a shortening of the muscles. By needling these muscles we can help to "reset" the nervous system, reduce pain and improve muscle function.
What is physiotherapy?

Our body has an optimal way to move. Poor posture, repetitive sports and activity cause imbalances to occur. These imbalances often remain undetected until there’s pain.  Physiotherapists are trained in understanding, evaluating and treating human movement disorders and injuries.

Physiotherapists are university educated health professionals who are experts in movement. We help people whether they’ve had an acute injury or a chronic problem.

What kind of manual therapy do you provide?

I provide a range of manual therapy techniques including joint mobilizations, spinal and peripheral joint manipulations. As well, I use various soft tissue techniques to help improve muscle function.

Can I use my extended health benefits?
Yes, you can! We offer direct billing with Blue Cross. In the event you have another health insurance provider, you will need to pay for physiotherapy and then submit the receipt to your insurance provider.
Do you see injured workers or post surgical patients?
Alberta Health Services provides special funding to post-surgical patients for physiotherapy care. It has been some time since Alberta Health Services has opened up this funding program to newer clinics and unfortunately we do not have this program. However, patients can still choose to see a physiotherapist not under this program and physiotherapy treatments can be submitted to your extended health program.
