Mira Toth, MScPT
Certified Acupuncture Practitioner, Certified Gunn IMS Practitioner, Certified Spinal Manipulative Therapist
I have a Masters of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of Alberta and an Honours Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Waterloo.
I specialize in treating and rehabilitation various conditions that affect bones, muscles, ligaments, and nervous tissue. My treatment philosophy is to address the primary cause of symptoms. I do this using a combination of advance manual and manipulative therapy, acupuncture, and intramuscular stimulation to restore normal joint and tissue mobility. This is followed by a targeted exercise program to restore function and minimize re-injury.
As a physiotherapist I can never stop learning. The science of physiotherapy is always changing and improving. There are always newer and better methods of treatment to get patients feeling better. I keep on top of the science so that I can provide an up to date health care experience for my patients. It is very important for me to continue my education with various post-graduate courses. Recently I have completed Advanced Orthopedic Manual and Manipulative Physiotherapy as well as received certification in Medical Acupuncture (CAFCI). I am a certified in Intramuscular Stimulation (GunnIMS), a dry needling technique for individuals with chronic pain and long standing musculoskeletal problems. Additionally, I have completed training from the Running Clinic in the New Trends in the Prevention of Running Injuries.
My areas of special interest include orthopedic injuries, both spinal and peripheral, and sports injuries including running, hockey, gymnastics, and soccer, among others.
Noman Anwari, MScPT
I have a Masters in Physical Therapy (MScPT) from the University of Alberta. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Sciences (with honours), psychology minor, from York University in Toronto.
I have experience assessing and treating patients who are impacted by chronic pain (including back pain, shoulder injuries, neck pain and headaches), musculoskeletal injuries, and sports injuries.
In clinical practice, my treatment philosophy is to use a hands-on approach to restore joint mechanics followed by an active treatment approach of muscle retaining and motor control strategies to correct movement dysfunction. I provide individualized, one-on-one treatment and develop exercise programs geared towards the level and goals of the patient.
I became a health care professional because I’m passionate about serving my community. Outside my clinic hours I volunteer with Alberta Hospital Edmonton, CASA Edmonton, and as a student mentor at the University of Alberta. I have participated in building creative physical activity and leisure programs for children with autism spectrum disorder.
I enjoy being active. I love biking, running, swimming and hiking, and I enjoy team sports like soccer.
Laudina Ahiable, MScPT
I have a Master of Science in Physical Therapy (MScPT) from the University of Alberta. I hold a BSc degree from the University of Winnipeg.
I have experience assessing and treating headaches, neck, shoulders, arm, back, leg, ankle and foot pain/injuries. I also treat motor vehicle accident injuries, musculoskeletal and sports injuries, post-surgical rehab and neurological conditions (including sciatica)
I also have further training to treat pelvic dysfunction including urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic pain, vaginismus, dyspareunia, diastasis recti, etc.
My treatment philosophy employs a combination of hands-on manual therapy techniques, individualized treatment programs, patient education as well as modalities to treat both the root cause and symptoms that a patient presents with. I aim to build an effective patient-therapist collaboration to determine the patients’ goals and to restore optimal function of the joints and muscles in the body.
I have completed the Arthritis Society's Getting a Grip on Arthritis® osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis education program and the function dry needling level 1 certification. Outside of work, I love to watch movies, discovering new restaurants/places and spending time with friends/family.
Krystle Steeves, MScPT
I have a Master’s of Physical Therapy from the University of Alberta and an Honours Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology from the University of New Brunswick. I've completed the Medical Acupuncture Program through the University of Alberta. This year I was awarded the Young Alumni Award from the University of New Brunswick for my work in paediatric physical therapy and my volunteer work in Edmonton and Ecuador.
I have worked in many physical therapy practice areas including: acute care, private practice, multidisciplinary rehab medicine, hand therapy and paediatrics. I take a holistic approach to therapy for all my patients and work with them to find the root cause. Applying a combination of manual therapy, acupuncture, patient education, and exercise prescription I produce immediate and long lasting relief from pain and dysfunction.
Although I am skilled in treating clients of all ages I have a passion for paediatrics. I have extensive experience in treating complex orthopaedic conditions, chronic pain, developmental delay, head shape, torticollis, toe walking, idiopathic constipation and many other conditions in children. I have developed and taught multiple workshops and lectures on the treatment of torticollis and plagiocephaly.
