Glacier Physio Marie-Michelle LaFontaine, Owner and Lead Physiotherapist
Marie-Michelle Lafontaine, B.Sc.

Owner and Lead Physiotherapist

Marie-Michelle has been a physio for over a decade. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy from University Laval in Quebec. Marie-Michelle first became a physio because movement, anatomy and sport performance were her passions. As a recreational athlete with a track and field competitive background, she transitioned into outdoor adventures and moved to the mountains. From cross country skiing in Quebec to a 10-day alpine ski traverse in the Bugaboos, road biking across Canada to mountain biking the Golden 24, and road running the Montreal marathon to trail running the Skyline in Jasper, she truly understands the importance of movement in your life.

Sarah Jury

Physiotherapist

Sarah spent the first 10 years of her career working at Caleo Health and Spine, one of the best multidisciplinary pain clinics in the country. During this time she worked directly with a team of spine surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, rheumatologists, neurologists and family physicians. She has also volunteered as a physiotherapist at hospitals in Haiti and Nepal.

Sarah has experience treating a wide-range of acute and chronic spinal conditions, as well as general orthopedic conditions, pelvic floor conditions, and chronic pain. She has additional training in acupuncture, spinal manipulations, the McKenzie method, and internal pelvic floor assessment and treatment. Her strengths are assessing and diagnosing conditions and creating comprehensive treatment plans that fits into every lifestyle. 

Sarah believes the foundations of physiotherapy are hands-on assessment and treatment, personal connection, efficient exercise programs, and individualized goal setting. Her favorite part of working as a physiotherapist is getting to know her patients and seeing them get back to doing what they love. As an active biker, climber, runner, snowboarder and hiker she appreciates how pain can impact not only your lifestyle but also your mental well-being.

Isabelle Chaumont

Physiotherapist

Her passion for physical activities and the human body motivated Isabelle to undertake her studies in kinesiology, massage therapy and then her master's degree in physiotherapy. She has since worked as a musculoskeletal physiotherapist and her interests lie in sports rehabilitation, spine pathologies and education.

 

For Isabelle, physiotherapy is a bit like placing together the pieces of a puzzle. Her goal is to consider all the symptoms, the condition, along with the patient objectives to develop and adapt a personalized treatment plan.


The profession of physical therapist also represents an opportunity to be proactive by educating the public and giving them the tools to prevent injuries and maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. It is also a great motivator to challenge herself on bike trails, on ski slopes and running tracks, while maintaining a balance in her own life.
