Clearwater Physical Therapy
Allison grew up in Waverley, Nova Scotia and earned a Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy at Dalhousie University in 1988. Over her 27 year career Allison has worked as a Physiotherapist in Alberta and Ontario, for hospitals, private and public clinics and the Department of National Defense, treated patients from 2 months to 102 years old. As a competitive sprint kayaker and war canoeist in her high school years and military Physical Therapy Officer for 10 years, Allison has experienced first hand the need to recover from injuries quickly and effectively to return to competition or full duties at work. Allison’s treatments emphasize exercise and education, and are supplemented with manual therapy, acupuncture, taping and pain management strategies. She attributes her career longevity to the pleasure she receives working in partnership with her patients to achieve their goals and the life-long acquisition of new skills and knowledge to achieve these goals most effectively.
