Andrea Murty

Andrea graduated with Physiotherapy BSc (Hons) from Robert Gordon’s University in Aberdeen, Scotland in 2012. Originally working in an acute hospital setting, she gained experience in respiratory medicine, orthopaedics, acute stroke and surgical wards working at a fast pace for all age groups in respiratory distress. During her time in the UK, she completed an Australian Pilates foundational courses, Bobath foundation 1 & 2, sports taping (kenisotape) as well as Acupuncture Foundational Courses, all intended to advance her understanding of how to best help her clients, as well as widen her own understanding of the human body and how it functions.  After moving to Calgary, Alberta with her family and completing the Canadian Alliance of Physiotherapy Regulator (CAPR) exams, she found a new focus within the pediatric population and found immense joy in assessing and treating children with higher needs. She has worked at a specialized school and home/community setting offering advice and consultation to teaching staff and families on specialized pediatric equipment, home exercise programs, in class or virtual therapy exercises and continual monitoring of orthotic use.  She also worked directly with transdisciplinary team members including SLP, OT, and Psychologists to offer dynamic strategies to each family to maximize the child's potential to learn. This gave Andrea a deep understanding and importance of family goals and priorities, which dictates her practice. She has experience in working with children with ASD, trisomy's, genetic conditions, and neurodevelopmental conditions including cerebral palsy and spina bifida. Andrea believes in continual education and the importance of progressing her knowledge base to better her therapy practice. She has completed her Level C Dynamic Movement Integration Certification and looks forward to continuing her education in this and other therapy modalities. When she is not working, she is busy keeping up with her family of three active children by climbing mountains and/or skiing down them!
