I'm Rebecca Margel
Born and raised in Ontario, I moved to Calgary in 2011, working in Oil and Gas and volunteering with adults with disabilities. In my first year in Calgary I started rock climbing, completed my first triathlon and ran distances I never thought possible. I pushed my body in ways I never had before, injuring my hip in the process.
What I loved most about physio as a patient was the sense of empowerment I got from learning about my body and being given the tools to make myself better, faster, stronger. Rather than just doing my exercises and calling it a day, I applied to do my Master’s in Physiotherapy and I’ve never looked back.
I treat a diversity of people from a spectrum of athletic and cultural backgrounds, of all ages and abilities. From patients with persistent pain, hypermobility disorders, runners of all levels and abilities, and rock climbers, to professional rodeo athletes, professional musicians, and beyond. I use critical thinking to help you prevent injury and rehabilitate your body.
In my spare time I love to hike, run, climb, skate, paddle, bike and swim. On more sedentary days you can find me nerding out with a physio podcast or a good book, or sometimes fifteen episodes into a Netflix binge, because we all have those days. Say hi if you see me at the lake, on the trail or at the crag!
