Paul is working on range of motion for the shoulder, scapula and progressing through strengthening exercises with soup cans and those coloured weights. “I have more empathy for folks talking about how tight their chest becomes post upper extremity injury.” **Paul cannot play punch buggy at the moment. 😊😷 #sportphysio #sportphysioyyc #mardaloop
There is a lot to be Thankful for these days. We are thankful for our Marda Loop Physio staff, our wonderful clients, being able to work, use our brains and bodies, our beautiful province, the ability to experience the great outdoors, the Marda Loop Community and the collective endeavour to make Alberta one of the best places in the world to call home! Happy Thanksgiving! 🎃 🦃 🥧 👨👩👧👦👩👩👧👦👨👨👦👦🐶 🍁 #mardaloop
Injuries happen fast and without a lot of warning. Even if you have ridden a mountain bike trail dozens of times and know it like the back of your hand crashes can happen. Getting it checked my a medical professional can help establish an early rehabilitation program and a path to recovery.

Just over a year ago Nicole Hunter sustained a really bad ankle sprain (picture included) that required a ton of rehab and home exercises. Proprioception, is the fancy term meaning the “perception or awareness of the position and movement of the body”. For the lower leg it usually means that our balance system is not working well. When you injure any joint the proprioception can become impaired. The good news is that if you work it and do balance exercises and weight bearing exercises you can retrain this system. Functional ways to rehab the lower leg are hiking and walking on uneven ground. Things you can do to transition to functional activities can include bracing, taping, supportive footwear and hiking poles. The key to all rehab is keep moving and use those joints. Nicole is enjoying the transition from mountain biking to hiking 🥾 in the Rocky Mountains ⛰ #sportphysio #sportphysioyyc #anklerehab #mardaloop
Our front desk crew Randi and Erica have been doing a lot of hiking in the Rockies this summer. This weekend they were touring Ptarmigan Cirque and Troll Falls. You may spot their trucker hats out on the trails. 🧢🐾🗻

The Grouse Grind in North Vancouver is the equivalent of Mother Nature’s Outdoor Stairmaster. The last time I did the trail was at Olympic Short Track Speed Skating Trials in 2009. A lot changes in 11 years. Now I am chasing my boys up the trail. 😊(We had our masks ready 😷 when we were passing other hikers) #grousemountain #grousegrind #yycsportphysio @ Grouse Grind®

Happy Canada Day Everyone! Canadians know we won the lottery to call this country home!
Great day riding in the Crowsnest Pass with Sweetriders! Our trusty trail dog needs a bit of Physio and massage after these rides too. 🐶
Thanks to Marda Loop Physiotherapy for their continued support. Here they are ripping it up
One of Paul’s patients knows him well and his love of biking 🚵🏼♀️. Stay safe and have fun! 😷❤️#sportphysiotherapy #yycsportphysio #sportphysio #physiodistancing #physiofaces
We are blessed with the mountains and beautiful scenery here in Southern Alberta. The fitness centres are not open yet and the kids sports programs are cancelled or delayed. My kids sometimes believe they are cursed having two physios as parents. My kids know that we always say, “There is always a mountain to climb and descend on bike or hike. Let’s go!” *my youngest son’s feet grew overnight and his toes were pretty sore. He wants to secretly burn his boots😊. #yycsportphysio #mardaloop #turtlemountain #calgaryphysio #crowsnestpass
Check out Sweetriders in Crowsnest Pass for mountain biking camps and tours. The riding is awesome!
Thank you to Marda Loop Physiotherapy for their great services, they keep me going!🙌🙌 Fully recommended👍
We hope you are managing to get outdoors, exercise and “physically distant” visit with friends and family. #physiocalgary #yycsportphysio #crowsnest
Safety First! It is so great to see everyone in person. Wearing a mask 😷 is a small price to pay. #physiodistancing #sportphysio #calgaryphysio #mardaloop #yycphysio
See you in the clinic starting next week (just a little more shaggy) #physiodistancing #mardaloop #yycsportphysio
We Are Back! We will be resuming in person physiotherapy sessions. You can start booking online for the week of May 11th. While the Provincial Government said we could open May 4th we wanted to ensure we have enough time to do it right. We are organizing staffing and may be able to see some patients at the end of next week. Please call 403-243-5004 to check for availability (you cannot book online for the end of next week). We are reducing the number of people in the clinic and extending the treatment time for each session. We have not seen all of you in at least a couple of months and it will take longer to address all of problem areas and allow us to be thorough. Your physio and support staff will be wearing masks. If you have a mask we ask you to wear it in the clinic. We are trying not to utilize the waiting room area to ensure physical distancing. Please arrive for your appointment on time and we will direct you to a room. In the interest of minimizing contact only the patient and necessary caregivers/guardians and Marda Loop staff will be allowed in the clinic. There are 4 sinks in the clinic to wash hands and there is also hand sanitizer in every room and at the front desk.
If you are not comfortable with seeing us for in clinic treatment we are still available for Virtual Physiotherapy sessions, otherwise known as Telehealth. Marda Loop's physiotherapists have an immense knowledge base and an ability to talk through your history, assess you and provide education, exercises and resources to help you start and progress your rehabilitation.
Please give us a call at 403-243-5004 or email [email protected] . The phones have been very busy. We are still here! We will call or email you back.
If you want to book online you can do it through: https://mardaloop.janeapp.com
Marda Loop Physiotherapy
Are you opening May 4th?
What we know so far about re-opening Marda Loop Physiotherapy for in person assessment and treatment is that we are in a holding pattern. We are waiting for additional information and orders from our College and the Chief Medical Officer of Health. While it is exciting to talk about re-opening we want to ensure that we are doing everything to be as safe and smart as we can. For now the clinic is closed for all but urgent in-person services. We have been having great success with online virtual visits. Please continue to access our great team at mardaloop.janeapp.com , call 403-243-5004 or email [email protected] . We look forward to seeing you all in person at some point in the near future. For now we will see you in the virtual world. *updates will follow when we have more clarification on the orders.
Yes we are still open! Virtual Physiotherapy sessions are here and have been running really well. This is otherwise known as "Telehealth". Marda Loop's physiotherapists have an immense knowledge base and an ability to talk through your history, assess you and provide education, exercises and resources to help you start and progress your rehabilitation. We would love to see you in clinic when all these COVID restrictions are slowly relaxed. For now we will see you in the virtual world.
*We are still here to treat "Urgent Patients".
The College of Physiotherapists defines the criteria for "urgent care" as:
Will the inability to initiate in-person care or the withdrawal of care lead to serious or imminent harm?
Is the client at risk for an emergency room visit, imminent hospital admission or re-admission?
Please give us a call at 403-243-5004 or email [email protected] to determine the best treatment plan. Leave us a message. We are still here! Physiotherapists are social creatures by nature and love our job. We will call or email you back.

Today April 9th is Vimy Ridge Day. On the Scout trip this summer the Troop where Paul and Nicole are leaders took the youth to Vimy Ridge. The Battle of Vimy Ridge took place on April 9-12, 1917 and helped define Canada as a nation. It was a victory that exacted a terrible cost with over 10,000 Canadians killed or wounded. Behind me is the Vimy Monument on Hill 145. It was here that the Canadians captured the area with a frontal bayonet charge against machine gun nests. It was an eye opening experience for the youth to see that soldiers not much older than them fought, hunkered in trenches, killed people the same age and buried their friends. It was sobering experience to imagine the terror and brutality of war. Our visit to Vimy was a somber reminder to never forget the sacrifice so many people and families paid for the freedom that we enjoy. Although our new reality is tough we have a world united to help defeat an unseen foe. Stay healthy, stay safe and never forget. #vimy #vimyridge @ Canadian National Vimy Memorial
Milk jug workout. We have had numerous calls asking if we are renting or selling the clinic weights. Here are some suggestions if you don’t have hand weights. You can modify the weight by the size of the milk jug and how much water is on-board. 🥛 🙌🦵🏼💪#physiodistancing #milkjug #milkjugworkout #sportphysio #yycphysio #yycsportphysio #telehealth
Glute Bridging with a Kick Out. Great for hip, back and core! There are numerous variations of this exercise. You can make this harder by tying an exercise band around your thighs, raising your hands off the mat or putting something unstable under the supporting foot such as a rolled up towel. *great thing about physical distancing is that I crank 70’s @ 80’s hard rock and metal and no one complains. **yesterday was 90’s grunge #physiodistancing #yycsport #yycsportphysio
Make sure you get up and move! Your exercise does not have to be done in one session. Paul is listening to his Physio wife, Nicole and getting a workout in 🏋️♀️between virtual online appointments. Remember you are also treating your brain 🧠. *Virtual telehealth sessions are available through https://mardaloop.janeapp.com or email [email protected] #onlinephysio #mardaloop
