Physiotherapy in Edmonton AB

Being in pain can be rough

But I can get you back to what you love

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.

About

Hi, I'm Mira and I'm an Edmonton physiotherapist

Mira Jindani, BSc (Hons), MScPT
Edmonton Physiotherapist

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

Mira Jindani is a physiotherapist in YEG - Edmonton, AB

I'm a registered physiotherapist in Edmonton, Alberta. I’ve been a physio since 2008 and have helped countless people, from young to old, feel and move better.

Physiotherapy

I specialize in treating and rehabilitating injuries and conditions that affect bones, muscles, ligaments, and nervous tissue.

I graduated from the University of Alberta, and have since taken extensive post-graduate courses to keep on top of the changing science of physiotherapy. As a physiotherapist, I can never stop learning.

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

On my off hours I like to spend time with my family. You can often find me walking Whyte Avenue or the River Valley carrying my camera. I love capturing moments.

My treatment manifesto

Core values I bring to your physiotherapy experience

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.

Provide exceptional care

For me, providing quality patient-centered physical therapy care is the most important part of being a physiotherapist. 

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some questions about physiotherapy I get asked often

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.

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.

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.

Can I use my extended health benefits?

Yes, you can! Check with your benefits provider about how much coverage you have for physiotherapy. I am working on setting up direct billing for most insurance providers including BlueCross, SunLife, Manulife, Great-West Life, and others. I should have this service in the next few weeks.

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.

Do you see post surgical patients?

AHS provides special funding to post-surgical patients for physiotherapy care. It has been some time since AHS 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 benefits program.

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.
