Denise Churchward - Physiotherapist
Lisa Lydiatt - Health Professional
Lisa graduated from the University of Alberta in 2003 with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy with distinction. Since graduation, Lisa has worked in private practice in Calgary and St. Albert where she mentored with accomplished manual therapists and IMS practitioners. Pursuing training in many postgraduate courses, Lisa has also gained comprehensive training in orthopedic manual and manipulative physiotherapy and a certificate in Gunn IMS. She is also certified with the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute. Most recently, Lisa has completed Level 1,2 and 3 of the Visceral Manipulation series through the Barral Institute and has completed The Connect Therapy Series with Dr. LJ Lee. She has also completed the Connect Therapy Level 4 update with Dr. LJ Lee and the Integrated Systems Model update with Diane Lee. Some special interest courses that Lisa has recently completed include: Lisa Howell’s Perfect Form Physiotherapy Level 1 Dance Teacher and Practitioner Training, Shelley Prosko’s Physioyoga Retreat and a Concussion course through U of C and Laval Universite Laval. Lisa continues to be fascinated by the complexity of the body and how it compensates when a person is experiencing pain. Committed to giving all of her patients a large amount of one-on-one time, she wants to get to know her patients and identify the source of their pain and dysfunction. With her extensive background in most forms of dance and five years as a hockey trainer, she has a special knowledge of how to treat athletic injuries.
The workshop gave me some great ideas for dance specific manual treatment, education, strengthening and releasing. I have also used the information for injury prevention programs for dancers.
