Christine Thomas

 

Athletic Sport Therapist


Christine grew up in Wetaskiwin and has since lived in various places before settling in Calgary. Growing up, she had a passion for various sports but her main focus was on gymnastics. Through various injuries that occurred in her training, she gained an interest in the human body, how it works and ways to rehabilitate it. When applying to university she came across the athletic therapy program and it immediately peaked her interest. Christine has Bachelor of Health and Physical Education with a major in Athletic Therapy.

She excelled in her program at Mount Royal and graduated in 2018 as well as passed the National Certification Exam with the Canadian Athletic Therapist Association (CATA).

As an athletic therapist, she is effective in treating and rehabilitating musculoskeletal (muscles, bones, and joints) injuries. Christine’s objective is to help her clients return to their usual activities whether it is returning to sport, walking the dog or wanting to put on a jacket pain free.

She believes that the body is connected from the head all the way to the feet. With that in mind she looks at different dysfunctions in the kinetic chain and incorporates various manual techniques, exercises and stretches to treat the root of the problem.

Christine has also worked with sports teams to provide on-field medical coverage such as for University of Calgary: women’s volleyball, Mount Royal University: women’s hockey, Midget AA Elite women’s hockey. She has also helped provide coverage for varsity basketball, x-country, wrestling and bantam football.

Some fun facts about Christine is that she has done 5 seasons of wildland firefighting, she is learning to crochet, and she is working on her ability to sing while playing the ukulele.
