Christine Salter is an experienced Physiotherapist who has been working in private practice in the Calgary area for 20 years. She graduated from the School of Physiotherapy at the University of Saskatchewan in 1992. Since then she has received advanced training in the area of manual therapy and uses a hands on approach in treatment.
She has developed a special interest in treating neck and back pain whether caused by a traumatic event such as a car accident or chronic pain from arthritis or poor posture. She uses her assessment and her knowledge of the body to detect muscle imbalances which may have arisen due to old injuries, compensatory patterns and muscle overuse. Treatment is directed at teaching her patients better body awareness, improving posture and strengthening key muscles of the core.
Christine is also trained in Medical Acupuncture through the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada. She uses acupuncture to support the immune system and enhance the recovery process. Certain acupuncture points can be used effectively to increase blood flow to injured tissues and provide a more natural approach to relieving pain and muscle tension. Christine currently practices at Ranchlands Physiotherapy.
