Jill is a fantastic athletic therapist. She worked with our son who is is a multi-sport athlete, after a recent injury. She helped him return safely to basketball and to continue fencing. Her assessment was thorough. And, she did an excellent job of explaining what she was seeing, and how each of the stretches and exercises would help. Our son has gone to other physiotherapists, chiropractors, etc, over the years and told us that this was the best experience. She equipped him with knowledge that will help him long term as an athlete. And, she does her work with great kindness. We are very happy to have her on our team.
Working with Jill has been lovely. I needed help getting back into an exercise routine after several years of inactivity due to health concerns. She has curated an effective program for me and walked me through exercises that have been helpful in getting myself moving again. She is clear in her instructions and is obviously knowledgeable and intentional about the exercises that she includes in my program. I feel like I'm in good hands! Highly recommend
Jill is an amazing athletic therapist who I recommend to anyone with any sort of pain or injury. I began to see Jill when I had been suffering from serious nerve pain for over a year. Within weeks of working with Jill I saw more progress than ever before. I was able to fence comfortably again for long periods of time after two months of consistently working together. Jill has been my number one since then, helping me overcome various injuries ranging from a concussion to a dislocated knee cap. Jill clearly invests so much time and care into every one of her clients, and has helped to foster my knowledge and love for biomechanics, exercises and athletic therapy in general.
Jill is Amazing. When I first went to her I could barely put any pressure on my knee at all and suffered from pain most of the previous fencing season. Three weeks later and I had almost no pain in my knee at all and can feel it actually getting stronger each day! She listened attentively and immediatly helped me to develop a set of routines to fix my posture and build strength and flexibility in my knee and hip.
I can't believe I put up with a bad knee for so long, I wish I had went and booked an appointment with Jill months ago!
Try Jill Purdy! Purdy Invincible Training ... she's an Athletic Therapist. She comes to our house once a week and is lovely and really knows body mechanics.
Both my spouse and I workout with her, she designed a program for each of us that individually fits what we are looking to improve and tailored to our body styles. I'm a curvy slightly overweight woman and he's an athletic guy so having the programs tailored to each of us was awesome!!
Jill's care and attention to detail is unmatched. She goes above and beyond for her clients. As an Olympic athlete, she's helped me with both new and reoccurring injuries and I'd recommend her to anyone!
My name is Jill Purdy. I am known to some as the therapist with the bow in her hair. I love sweet treats, and running. I am a bit of a anatomy nerd so I love to help people truly understand their injury.
What is an Athletic Therapist?
As an athletic therapist, I am the person who will enter onto the field when an athlete is hurt and I am qualified to help them. In addition to helping them safely off the field, I will work with the athlete to bring the athlete back to full playing potential using manual therapies and functional exercises. As we are specialists in the muskuloskeletal system, we integrate the whole body to ensure the best possible outcome for recovery. Another goal of mine is to integrate prevention programs into teams to reduce the amount of injuries. I am a Certified Athletic Therapist and a First Responder. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Why did I become a Athletic Therapist?
I started my journey towards athletic therapy in High School in a sports medicine class where I was given the opportunity to work with a volleyball team as a "student trainer". That is where I learned that I loved to help people. My love of sport, and my love of medicine helped lead me to taking a degree in Kinesiology from Brock University. While at Brock University, I was able to be mentored by the well respected Joe Kenny, Karen Miller and Jim Bilotta, as I was working as a student Athletic Therapist for the Brock University Varsity Fencing Team. Having learned about physiology, anatomy, and sport psychology, I decided to follow my passion to help people and continue on to Study Athletic Therapy at Mount Royal University. At Mount Royal University, I was able to learn the skills necessary to be a First Responder and a specialist in Muskuloskeletal injuries. I was able to practice my skills within two wonderful practicums. The first was at Ambrose University with the Volleyball teams. The second was at University of Calgary with their Women Soccer team, and both Men and Women Basketball teams. This grew my love for helping others and using my knowledge to help people. Now that I am certified, as an Athletic Therapist, I look forward to working within a multi-sport fashion so I can continue to help others, “Recover. Regain. Return.”
I look forward to helping you feel better and get back to living your movement dreams and ambitions.
