Amber Unger, PT Intern
Amber grew up outside of Olds, Alberta and later obtained her Bachelor of Science (Honors) in Biology in Edmonton. She originally pursued work in Wildfire Management and Research before switching careers and completing her Masters in Physical Therapy at the University of Alberta. 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!

Michelle Sinclair, PT (On Leave)
Michelle has spent many years in many areas of PT practice. Her experience has taught her the importance of a neurofunctional and team approach to supporting her clients. She started out as a Sports and Orthopedics PT in 1991, working with athletes from the CFL, NHL, Royal Winnipeg Ballet, symphony musicians, conductors and the physicians that took care of them. She switched gears to work in adult neuro rehab (her clients had experienced strokes, brain injuries, and spinal chord injuries) after moving to Calgary with her husband. A few years later she collaborated with an OT and a kinesiologist to create and teach a back care program that became mandatory education for all of Calgary’s hospital staff, at the time called the Calgary Regional Health Authority. She focused on hand therapy for a few years before getting back to neuro and orthopedics, this time with children at Alberta Children’s Hospital and GRIT. Michelle’s own interest in music, especially voice study and performance have led her to much extra education in the areas of posture and breathing as they pertain to maximizing performance, minimizing anxiety and fatigue especially in high pressure situations. She has 2 very active teenagers and her interests in keeping them healthy and managing injury while they compete in a high level of dance, volleyball, skiing, track and rugby have brought her full circle back to her original loves of sports and orthopedics. She recently became a certified Neurofunctional Acupuncture Practitioner after intensive study with Dr. Alejandro Elorriaga at McMaster University.
A competitive figure skater and lifeguard in her youth, adult Ultimate player and avid skier, now Michelle stays active mostly through running, yoga and kayaking. Michelle is delighted to join Jo-Ann and the team at PhysioWorks.
