+ Myranda Reimer - Physiotherapist (Bio)
Being a Physical Therapist is only a part of my life, but it is a part of my life that reflects many of my core values and morals. Being empathetic, genuine, hard working, and holistic are a number of traits that enhance my communication skills, customer service, and professionalism. I am able to build rapport with any population and specifically love talking about restoring quality of life through prevention and maintenance.
Human anatomy has always fascinated me and I love the mobility our bodies possess. I have a deep rooted passion for health and well-being, striving to live by example. Continuously learning from my own personal health experiences, as well as work experience, helps me better understand the many different ways clients need support.
I thoroughly enjoy the continuing education aspect of physiotherapy and spend lots of my time reading articles, practicing techniques, and consistently cycling through the many tools in my large toolbox, so to speak! I have many continuing education courses on my list as well.
Women's Health and Medical Therapeutic Yoga continue to be advancing areas of interest for me as I journey into practice. But overall I have a keen interest in many other divisions and modalities, including Manual Therapy, that allow me to be a Physical Therapist and facilitate growth in others.
