Melanie graduated from the University of Alberta with a Master’s in Physiotherapy in 2010. She also has her Bachelor of Kinesiology from the University of Manitoba in 2008. She has worked at Corydon Physio since 2011 and owns it as of April 1, 2019 with her husband. Her home is Winnipeg and she is very happy to be back here and pursuing her career at our clinic. Since graduation she has pursued many continuing education courses including being certified in Acupuncture and The McKenzie Method for treating back pain.
Melanie’s interest in physiotherapy began during her first year of University when she tore knee ligaments while playing basketball for the University of Manitoba Bison Women’s team. After surgery and months of physiotherapy, she went on to play four years for the Bison’s, and was co-captain in her final year. Learning about human performance started at an early age, and pursuing physiotherapy as a career was a great fit.
Melanie has an extensive athletic background which includes playing basketball with the Universities of Alberta and Manitoba. She had a very successful season with The University of Alberta Panda’s where they finished with a bronze medal. She loves coaching basketball and volleyball and continues to coach adults and children through school teams, club teams, or camps. Working with people to help motivate, educate and lead them is a personal strength.
Melanie looks forward to a career helping people improve their quality of life and return them to the activities they love. Her special interests include treating sports injuries and problems of the neck and back.
Further goals include, building her athletic patient caseload, further education in the McKenzie method and treating injuries to the muscle and skeletal systems.
Melanie will be on maternity leave as of April 1, 2019 having her second child. In her spare time Melanie also likes to play recreational basketball and volleyball.
