Amber Unger, PT Intern
Amber grew up outside of Olds, Alberta and later obtained her Bachelor of Science (Honors) in Biology in Edmonton.

During her studies, she had the opportunity to work at PhysioWorks while on one of her clinical placements, and became even more passionate about the assessment, treatment and creative problem solving of orthopedic conditions.
Amber is dedicated to helping people regain function and return to their normal lives, as she understands first hand how frustrating it is to not be able to do what you love or need to do—whether that’s work, sport or play. She focuses on prescriptive exercises and manual therapy techniques that are tailored to each individual, and creates a program that will specifically address the presenting impairment or pathology.
Amber would spend all of her time in the mountains if she could, but concedes herself to hiking, backpacking, cross country skiing and trail running when she’s not helping you recover from your injuries!
