Lilac Christie

MScPT, BSc Kin

Lilac has a BSc in Kinesiology from the U of Waterloo and a BHSc in Physiotherapy from McMaster University. She has much experience ranging from hospital acute care to inpatient extended rehabilitation to long-term care to home care in Florida, Texas, and California. She now enjoys outpatient rehabilitation here in Calgary. Lilac's initial training focused on ergonomics, biomechanics, and exercise physiology. Her interest then gravitated towards Neuromuscular Rehabilitation - stroke rehabilitation in particular - and now her focus is on musculoskeletal rehabilitation in an outpatient setting. 


"I love working closely with patients with a client-centered approach knowing that their families and support systems also play an important part in their recovery journey."


Years ago, Lilac was a competitive skydiver with several World Records, US National, and World Championship titles. She also loved to teach First Jump Courses and Progressive Freefall to people so that she could light the fire in their eyes and be able to share the enjoyment of adrenaline with them! "Currently, I enjoy playing ice hockey, figure skating, road and mountain biking, weight lifting, kickboxing, yoga, hiking, camping, kayaking, canoeing, downhill skiing, and anything that takes me outdoors."


Her two teenage sons - soon-to-be young men - and two Bernedoodles keep her busy most days.  "Keeping healthy, fit, and pain-free is my passion in life and I am grateful to be able to share this with others and to be able to help them attain better freedom of movement lifestyle!"
