Lisa Smyrichinsky BSc. CAT(C)

IM10

In June of 2015 Lisa graduated from the University of Winnipeg with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology (Athletic Therapy). She then went on to certify as an Athletic Therapist and holds the designation CAT(C).

Lisa’s passion for health and wellness developed through her involvement in rhythmic gymnastics at a young age. After years of competing at a provincial level, she went on to become a national level coach and judge. While completing her university degree Lisa expanded her experience working with athletes in various sports and began with the University of Winnipeg Wesmen Women’s Volleyball Team. She spent two seasons with Wesmen Volleyball and then continued on to student athletic therapist roles with the Manitoba Soccer Association, West Kildonan Collegiate’s Football Team, and the St. Vital Victorias MMJHL Hockey Team.

Clinically Lisa has had the opportunity to work with individuals with acute and chronic injuries that have been acquired during physical activity, in motor vehicle collisions, and at work. A highlight of her clinical experience was spending a summer in Calgary at the Winsport Medicine Clinic where she assisted with injury rehabilitation of our Canadian Winter Olympic Athletes.

Lisa believes that athletic therapy is for all “athletes” of life. Athletic Therapists are specially trained to assess the musculoskeletal system as a whole and are able to locate deficiencies that cause pain and discomfort. Using primarily manual therapy, soft tissue work, and exercise-based treatment athletic therapy will help get you back to your active lifestyle. Lisa sees clients in St Boniface.

Lisa offers: Athletic Therapy Services, Personal Training, First Responder Services, and Group Fitness/Team Training

Brendan Wiebe BSc, CAT(C)

IM8

Brendan graduated with his BSc. in Kinesiology from the University of Winnipeg in 2016. He continued on to certify as an Athletic Therapist nationally, receiving the designation CAT(C). Brendan has a passion for the artistic side of the sports world having trained in dance (classical ballet, and jazz) as well as artistic gymnastics and hopes to provide support to athletes in these communities.

Having grown up highly involved in sports Brendan is familiar with the frustration and discomfort of injuries. This understanding has fuelled Brendan’s passion to help people get back to the activities that give them life. During the process of his university degree, Brendan gained experience working with the Wesmen Wrestling teams, AAA City Midget Warriors Hockey, as well as high school volleyball and basketball teams.

In the clinic Brendan works with individuals dealing with both acute and chronic injuries, caused by motor vehicle collision, workplace accident, or physical activity, using a combination of manual therapy techniques and exercise to get them back to play or work.

Brendan believes that an active lifestyle is an important component of long term health and happiness. Athletic Therapists can play a key role in keeping you active for longer as they are specially trained to assess the musculoskeletal system and are able to locate deficiencies and imbalances that can lead to pain and discomfort.

Brendan offers: Athletic Therapy Services, Personal Training, First Responder Services

Olivia Tefft, B.Kin, CAT(C), FMS, CSEP

Olivia graduated with a Bachelor of Kinesiology from the University of Manitoba in 2018, and went on to certify nationally as an Athletic Therapist and a Certified Personal Trainer immediately following graduation.

Olivia’s passion for movement began in the dance world, competing and training in ballet, jazz, modern dance and musical theatre for nearly 15 years. During this time she sustained many injuries and began to take an interest in the injury prevention and rehabilitation side of sport. In the summer of 2017, Olivia began a new journey as a competitive triathlete, and observed firsthand the training demands and concerns of the endurance athlete.

On the field, Olivia has worked everywhere from professional hockey, interuniversity soccer and high school football, as well as at major events such as the 2017 Canada Summer Games and the Manitoba Marathon. In the clinic she enjoys working with athletes and community members of all ages and abilities, and applies her knowledge and skills as a personal trainer in both the gym and the clinic. She approaches rehabilitation from the mindset that it is not only important to assess what is causing you pain, but that you leave each treatment with the ability and knowledge to become stronger and more functional than you were before the injury occurred.

Olivia uses both manual therapy techniques such as soft tissue work, cupping and mobilizations, as well as exercise prescription and education to get you moving your best. Olivia sees clients at The Yoga Barre in Charleswood and Movement.FP in the area of the Health Sciences Centre.
