Gina holds a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from the University of Lethbridge (2000) and another in physiotherapy from the University of Alberta (2005). Gina’s extensive post-graduate training in both manual and McKenzie based treatment techniques give her a unique skill set. Gina focuses on sports therapy and postural and repetitive strain injuries. Her treatments include spinal mobilization, spinal stabilization (CORE) exercise, neural tissue mobilization, postural taping and myofascial release. Gina is also qualified to practice acupuncture and uses this, combined with a dry-needling technique (IMS), for patients with chronic pain and long standing muscoskeletal problems. Gina is completing her Therapeutic Yoga Training, as another modality to help her patients, through movement and mobility.
In her off time Gina is an avid athlete with a background in many different sports, such as basketball, fitness competitions, triathlon, and crossfit, but cross trains today primarily because she loves it! She believes that not only physical health is important but mental health should not be over looked and practices both meditation and yoga on a regular basis.
Gina is highly disciplined and knows that consistent work and dedication are key to success. She also values life-long learning and continues to further her own education by taking advanced physiotherapy courses. Gina is friendly, enthusiastic, detail oriented and professional. She is committed to high quality care and loves knowing that her clients leave Action Sports Clinic feeling better.
