Myriam Pelletier

Resident
Physiotherapist

I obtained my Bachelor in Human Kinetics in 2017 and my Masters in Physiotherapy at the University of Ottawa in 2020. I plan to continue to further my knowledge through a variety of post-graduate courses. I am particularly interested in manual therapy, sports rehabilitation and active therapy.

I’ve always been passionate about physical activity. Incidentally, I danced competitively for Extravadanse in Rockland for many years. In 2012, I took a 3 year program through A.D.A.P.T. to become a certified jazz and tap-dance instructor. I taught in a number of studios throughout the region at both the recreational and elite levels in all age groups. I intend to continue teaching dance, incorporating the concepts I’ve learned in biomechanics and the anatomy of the human body, placing emphasis on injury prevention.

During my studies, I had the opportunity to participate in an internship for FitQuest, a company that works with student athletes of the CIHA school in Rockland. During this internship, I learned a great deal about off-ice training programs for hockey players as well as the rehabilitation of a variety of injuries for this particular group. At the end of my internship, I obtained employment as a trainer for off-ice summer camps at CIHA. I filled this position for two summers.

In my free time, I enjoy training in kickboxing and jiu-jitsu with the 100% Martial Arts Club. I also do weightlifting. I am proud to be able to help people in my community to improve their well-being and their quality of life by being an active participant in their rehabilitation.
