Welcoming Physiotherapist Meggan Oliver back to Canada and to the RISE Health Team

Meggan grew up in Victoria and went to UVic after graduating from SMUS. While earning her degree in Kinesiology, she played field hockey, won two CIS national gold medals, three silver medals, and was a three-time All-Canadian and a four-time Academic All-Canadian. She played for the Canadian women’s field hockey team and competed internationally at Junior World Cup 1997, Commonwealth Games 2001 and Pan American Games 2003.

In 2006, Meggan graduated from UBC’s Masters of Physical Therapy program. She has worked in various sports and orthopedic clinics around BC and in Colorado, and has a special interest in treating women’s health. Meggan can assess and treat the pelvic floor in women with pelvic girdle pain, incontinence, prolapse, and/or pelvic floor muscle weakness. She has completed the APTA Pelvic Health levels 1 and 2, as well as the beginner and advanced OB courses, earning a CAPP-OB certification. Meggan has a particular passion for helping women during pregnancy and their return to athletic activities after delivery.

Meggan is certified in acupuncture (CAFCI) and in dry needling (Kinetacore level 1 and 2), and earned her Certificate of Intermediate Manual and Manipulative Physiotherapy in 2010. She completed Dr. LJ Lee’s Connect Therapy series and is an Orthopedic Certified Specialist (USA). Meggan uses all of these tools to treat patients with a hands-on focus, teaching them how to best manage their injury and return to the activities they love.

If Meggan is not taking a physiotherapy course, she is probably outside hiking, skiing, or camping with her husband and two young daughters, or training for her next trail run, triathlon, or adventure race.

Meggan looks forward to listening to your needs and using evidence-based, quality care to help you get ready for your next adventure. She loves treating any body part but particularly enjoys treating the neck, thoracic spine, low back/pelvis/hips and knees.
