MEET OUR REHAB TEAM
Jason Dyck, Physical Therapist/ Owner
My name is Jason Dyck, and I’m a Physical Therapist who loves helping people stay active and injury free. Whether you are recovering from a nagging injury or looking to improve your performance in the gym, I can help you!
I obtained my masters in Physical Therapy (MScPT), as well as my PhD (Neuroscience), from the University of Alberta. I have been working as a Physical Therapist in the Edmonton area for the past 5 years.
My treatment style is primarily using corrective exercises to address the underlying imbalances that are causing pain/ injury. I use a combination or Functional Dry Needling and manual therapy (joint manipulation and soft tissue work) as needed to improve mobility or decrease pain. Ultimately my goal is to allow you to continue to workout/ train hard by providing you the tools to recover quickly and avoid further injury.
Jessie Brown, Physical Therapist
Hi! My name is Jessie Brown. I am a graduate from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor's in Kinesiology and a MSc in Physical Therapy. I played for the Pandas varsity soccer team and twice represented Canada at the Universiade games. With an athletic and coaching background I am passionate about utilizing movement to treat and prevent injuries. My goal is to allow you to move in an efficient, independent and pain-free way that does not place limits on whatever your end goal may be.
Dr. Leah Sartison, Chiropractor
Before joining Movement First, I had quite the journey bringing me to the chiropractic realm. My involvement with sports and movement first started out by playing ACAC Soccer with Concordia University in Edmonton, where I played for three years before completing my Bachelors of Physical Education at the University of Alberta in 2011. My work as a personal trainer at Millennium Place in Sherwood Park ignited my love for human movement and optimizing function, leading to a three-year journey at the University of Western States, where I completed my Doctor of Chiropractic and Masters in Science of Sports Medicine.
Since graduating, I have worked with numerous athletes from a wide variety of ages and experiences, one of my most memorable being my time with the BCHL’s Vernon Vipers.
Throughout my career, I’ve found myself most fascinated with faults of the feet and developmental kinesiology and have also established Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization as a pillar of my practice, as I believe it to be important to observe the human body as a whole. This means assessing functional movement patterns while also taking into consideration nervous, muscular, lymphatic, skeletal, vascular systems and of course, mental or emotional states.
On my days off, I’m at my happiest when I’m biking, climbing, running, snowboarding and mountaineering the beautiful Canadian Rockies.
