Concussion Physiotherapy

A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury caused by an impact to the head, neck, or elsewhere on the body that transmits forces to the brain. This results in a biochemical imbalance and energy crisis in the brain resulting in a varied clinical presentation.

A concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury caused by an impact to the head, neck, or elsewhere on the body that transmits forces to the brain. This results in a biochemical imbalance and energy crisis in the brain resulting in a varied clinical presentation. During the energy crisis recovery time, the brain remains vulnerable to reinjury so it is extremely important to plan a safe return to sport, play, or work. Symptoms can include headache, dizziness, cognitive and behavioural changes, balance impairment, neck pain, and more. Physiotherapy treatment for concussion involves baseline and post concussion testing to determine safe return to activity, manual therapy, and various exercise strategies to ensure a full and safe recovery.


Vestibular Physiotherapy

Vestibular Physiotherapy helps relieve symptoms caused by the vestibular system which is the parts of the inner ear and brain that help control balance and eye movements. The most common symptoms people experience with vestibular disorders are dizziness, vertigo, and imbalance.

Joey has been a staple at Northern Hills Sport Physiotherapy since he received his Master’s in Physiotherapy at the University of Alberta in January 2008. His unique perspective of diagnostic troubleshooting and use of IMS / Dry Needling has made him a valuable resource for team members and clients alike.

Joey reluctantly continues to work as needed but without a doubt would rather make a living playing his guitar in front of sold out stadiums with his band Don Coyote and filling free time with his biking and travelling passions.

We have seen Joey develop as a PT, a father, an avid outdoor enthusiast and a performer over the last decade and are very proud to have him onboard!

Having the consistency of Joe on staff keeps his happy clientele referring his expertise and the machine rolling along.

I am the founder and owner of Northern Hills Sport Physiotherapy. I was initially interested in Physiotherapy, like a lot of other PT’s after being treated for several injuries as a younger adult. The profession enticed me with the work environment. I found PT clinics to be a laid back environment to work in and an environment where the therapists were faced with a variety of challenging issues to deal with thus continuing to keep them on their toes and not allowing them to get bored with working on the same thing over and over. 22 years into my career I have found that I really enjoy my job, the social interaction and being able to help individuals has been an added bonus.

I was trained in my home town of Saskatoon at the U of S, yes I bleed green (Go Riders!!!) and furthered my skills with manual courses including being a Manipulative Therapist. I am a certified acupuncture and Intra muscular Stimulation (IMS) Practitioner which has been a huge asset to my practice. I emphasize client input to their rehab and educate them on anatomy, injury pathology, home programs, ergonomics with regards to not only work but home and recreational activities. I find that the more involved a client is with their own rehab, the better they do in achieving and maintaining optimal health. In the end it all adds up to being able to do what you love and being pain free doing it, thus allowing you to enjoy it as much as possible.

I think this is my goal. I love work but I love to play even more. Mostly that is being able to play hockey, hike, surf, wakeboard, snowboard, mountain, motor and road bike and horseplay at a level that my kids are pushing me to. As they get older I find that my years of being able to beat them at everything is limited and I plan on giving them a run for their money for years to come. As a result, my own rehab and maintenance is important and I practice what I preach for the most part and so far so good. So bring it on Joey, Ellie, and Sammy!

Owning a clinic has been a great challenge for me in the past 19 years. Business has been something that I have learned on the go and I have found that the saying, ‘you are only as good as your weakest link’ holds true. I know that Northern Hills Physiotherapy has been a great place for patients, and workers alike due to my success in staffing. I pride myself in this aspect and put a lot of emphasis on who I hire to ensure a great work environment and a great place for people to receive treatment. I hire high level therapists, with personalities that fit our professional, relaxed and productive atmosphere. This has resulted in a culture that people like to work in and where clients get results!

Christine has recently come back to Northern Hills Sports Physio after a short time away and she is happy to be part of this amazing team. Christine studied at the School of Physiotherapy at the University of Saskatchewan, graduating in 1992. Christine completed her manual therapy studies through the Canadian Physiotherapy Association and through this process she became more skilled with mobilization and manipulation of the spine. She has also completed courses in Traditional Chinese Acupuncture, dry needling and intramuscular stimulation IMS. She uses dry needling and IMS to treat stubborn trigger points and release tight overused areas of the body.

Christine became interested in treatment of concussion and vestibular therapy which often occurs as a result of a motor vehicle accident or a sports injury. This includes the treatment of BPPV, a condition which affects the crystals in the inner ear and can lead to vertigo, a spinning sensation when the head is moved. Vertigo and balance disorders often need medical attention and Christine collaborates with physicians and specialists to get a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

Christine engages her patients to perform simple therapeutic movements and exercises to identify and strengthen the weak link in their body. A thorough physiotherapy assessment usually reveals an underlying biomechanical fault, some movement restriction or an overuse pattern such as a tennis elbow or tendinitis as a result of over training. Christine works with her patient to help them understand their body better and provide them with awareness of what they can do to help themselves.

Christine practices yoga, enjoys mountain biking as well as other mindfulness practices to attend to physical and mental well-being and has found these practices so very helpful in understanding her own injuries and healing process.

Born and brought up in Himalayas, I graduated from HNB Garhwal University in Dehradun, India.

During my Internship I completed postings that include working in Intensive care unit and surgery to working in paediatrics, geriatrics and psychiatry. Thereafter I gained clinical experience in various outpatient settings and sports centres to treating patients in inpatient hospitals. I had chance to observe and help in multiple live surgeries, all of which helped me in gaining insight view and to understand the human body and its functionality in a much better way.

My experience includes treating a wide spectrum of patient population from top level sportsmen to everyday office going population. I have seen and helped individuals recovering from a wide range of acute injuries and surgeries to individuals addressing lifelong chronic ailments.

I use manual therapy, exercise and electrotherapy, myofascial release techniques and education to work with my clients. I have training in Mulligans concept manual therapy for spine, upper and lower limb.

I believes that truly listening to what our bodies are telling us is the key to the process of faster recovery. 

I was involved in various sports in school. Injuries sustained during those times and subsequent recovery were the main reason behind my interest for physical therapy as a healing science, which subsequently became my profession after that. I don’t miss a chance to travel and hike outdoors. As an avid sports enthusiast, I watch all sports. I love playing soccer and cricket. Capturing nature and  wildlife with my camera is another of my passion.

I love attending various events around town with family and friends.

I am fluent in English, Punjabi, Hindi and Urdu.

Adeline is a born and bred Calgarian who graduated from the University of Calgary with a Bachelor of Physical Education and Mount Royal College with a certificate in Massage Therapy. Adeline has been at Northern Hills Sports Physiotherapy since January 2007 and at our sister clinic, Fix Physio, since January 2021 and is a member in good standing with the MTAA.

As a massage/manual therapist, her areas of interest are soft tissue dysfunction and pain. Acute and chronic pain - what causes it, how it is treated and managed is an area of interest that Adeline wants to contribute to your overall wellness.

Adeline was very excited to discover a modality that checked a lot of the boxes for a tool she was seeking and in 2021 set off to acquire this new skill. She is very pleased to announce that she has successfully completed the course work for Rapid NeuroFascial Reset to become a Rapid Specialist!

So…What IS Rapid NeuroFascial Reset or RAPID NFR?

RAPID NFR is a new soft tissue, movement based therapeutic technique that addresses the central nervous systems role in alleviating pain, tension and restrictions within muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves.

What does it feel like?

Every session is a combination of examination and treatment. Adeline uses her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Hypersensitive areas are treated by combining precisely directed tension with specific patient movements.

Rapid sessions may be uncomfortable during the movement phase of the treatment. This occurs as the neurological system is being stimulated to restore normal function. Treating the body at the neurological level stimulates a reprogramming of the tissue – tight muscles relax, range of motion is restored, and the pain is eliminated.

Rapid treatments are performed clothed in comfortable attire (no jeans) and cream, lotion or oil is not required.

Why choose RAPID-NFR?

Clients are drawn to Rapid because of the “rapid” or quick response to treatment. This helps active individuals quickly get back to life and living.

How many sessions does it take?

Most painful conditions are resolved in 2-8 treatments. We are offering Rapid sessions in 30 and 60 minute sessions.

Conditions treated with RAPID:

Migraines/Headaches Frozen Shoulder Golfer’s and Tennis elbow Low Back Pain Sacroiliac Dysfunction Whiplash TMJ-D Vertigo and Tinnitis Arthritic Joints Carpal Tunnel Sciatic Bursitis Plantar Fasciitis Knee Pain Quad, Hamstring and Groin Pulls Shin Splints Baker Cysts Tendinitis

This is just a short list. If you are in pain, Adeline can help! Call to book your RAPID appointment today!
