  • Hi, we are Pursuit Physiotherapy in Red Deer.  We promote balanced, healthy living through dedicated, individualized physical therapy for those in pain, unable to participate fully in their daily activities, wanting to maximize their function for work or sport, and wanting to prevent potential problems.

    If it is affecting your quality of life, then we want to help you to optimize your function and minimize your pain.

    At Pursuit Physiotherapy, we give our clients the tools necessary to optimize function and return to their best life as efficiently as possible. We assist those who want a point in the right direction as well as those who need intensive regular treatment. We want to empower you to take control over your health.

    Our clinic is designed to help you achieve your health goals. Our team works towards your success and recovery.
    We focus on our clients ability to function in their day to day lives.

    Physiotherapists are part of the medical team and are trained to diagnose your problem and provide you with the tools to get you on your way. We do this through assessing and explaining your pain or dysfunction and treating it appropriately to help you achieve your outcome goal. We are dedicated to a friendly, compassionate, and safe environment.

    The combination of therapists and support staff at Pursuit Physiotherapy work together to provide skilled and compassionate care. We have some similar skill sets and personality traits and some very different ones but together we feel we can offer our clients exceptional physiotherapy.  We take the time that is necessary to fully assess an injury and give you options on how to best deal with the problem.

    We believe that a high level of skill through post graduate courses and clinical experience allow us to provide first class physiotherapy services.

    Quality Care, Quality Life

    We believe that together we can be a strong force in improving your quality of life to pursue your goals.

    Your goal may be as simple–or complicated–as reaching the top shelf of your kitchen cupboards in spite of your aching shoulder, or as complex as learning to walk again after a serious motor vehicle accident (MVA).

    Your problem may be greatly limiting and preventing you from performing your work, daily home tasks, or recreational activities. Or, your problem may be just annoyance … for now!

    Multiple Treatment Options

    Whether an acute orthopaedic injury or a chronic pain that has been going on for years, our therapists are dedicated to providing skilled and appropriate treatment to help you recover. We want to take it a step further and educate you to help you prevent future flare ups and promote improved overall health.

    At Pursuit Physiotherapy, we encourage our therapists to continue their education beyond their university years in post graduate course work. This allows us to offer you treatments with advanced skill in manual therapy (mobilization/manipulation), muscle release / myofascial techniques, intramuscular stimulation IMS (dry needling), and current information from the health world.

    This dentist has a sweet tooth for the dance floor!

  • Good chance most people don’t think of dentists and fun at the same time.  Well then most people haven’t met Dr Isaac Day yet.  The Innisfail dentist and father of 6 certainly knows how to have a good time.  Day and pro dancer Jinelle Themig nearly brought the roof down at the Cambridge Conference Centre.. especially when they shocked the crowd with one of the riskiest tricks we’ve ever seen at this competition.  Bet you can’t watch this just once.  It’s too much fun!

    My Story…

    A competitive fundraiser for a great cause? I’m all in!
    I am the founder of Day Dental and we have the best dental team and patients ever. With their support, we will keep the Mirror Ball trophy where it belongs…in Innisfail!
    While Innisfail has been home for my family and me for the last 7 years, I was born and raised in Edmonton where I completed my Bachelor of Medical Science and my Doctor of Dental Surgery. After working in Edmonton, my wife and I packed up our kids and moved to Central Alberta.
    I enjoy different experiences, personally and professionally, from working in a cosmetically driven dental practice in Edmonton to being the dentist at the Bowden Prison. When a new experience presents itself, the answer is YES. So when the opportunity to participate in the Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off presented itself, I knew I couldn’t turn it down.
    I am looking forward to helping this great cause, and to trying something new and exciting, and most definitely out of my comfort zone!

    Celebrity Dancer Alex Wood mistaken for 2nd pro on the floor!

  • As co-owner of Ryde RD Spin Cycling, Alex Wood may have had a slight athletic advantage over even the most physically fit celebrities in the 2019 Celebrity Dance Off.  Wood also trained as a dancer when she was growing up.  Did all that pay off?  Well some of the judges and many of the spectators were under the impression their might be two pros on the floor when Wood and pro partner Peter Samoila performed.  Check out this fast and flawless salsa / cha cha mix.  Amazing doesn’t do it justice!

    My Story…

    I grew up here in Red Deer, this is home. It took me a while to return after high school but I am so happy to be back. I co-own Ryde RD Spin Studio. Red Deer was the perfect place for my husband Dave and I to start our business.

    I studied at Montana Tech and graduated as a petroleum engineer. I met my husband there and we made our way to Calgary for work. After two and half years, I decided that a desk job wasn’t for me so we packed our bags, moved to Asia and travelled overseas. After too much fun in the sun, we decided to move to Red Deer to start Ryde.

    Supporting our clients and the community is very important to us. We’ve hosted many charity Ryde’s including one for the Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off.

    Over the next few months, I’ll be putting my travel bug on hold, trading my spin shoes in for dancing shoes, and trying to regain my dancing skills from my teenage years. I’m honored to be a part of this event and passionate about the cause.
