Laura Gfeller, PT | Dartmouth Clinic
Laura Gfeller is a physiotherapist who completed her bachelor’s education at Dalhousie University and then moved on to graduate with her masters in physiotherapy in 2014 from McMaster University in Hamilton Ontario.
Laura is an active runner and found her passion for the profession as a chronically injured runner who made herself a second home at the local physiotherapy clinic.
When Laura is not treating, you can find her on her bike, paddling on the lake, or training for her next marathon or triathlon. Laura believes in a comprehensive approach to treatment, and will work with you to achieve results specific to your individual goals. She combines soft tissue release techniques, dry needling, joint mobilization, and kinesiology taping in conjunction with functional exercise to help you recover from, and prevent further injury.
After graduating Laura moved to Calgary Alberta where she has been working in a private outpatient clinic that has allowed her to treat a variety of clients ranging from professional athletes to individuals with spinal cord injuries. Although Laura did begin to call Calgary, home she found that while the Rocky Mountains are beautiful, the ocean has mysterious ways of bringing people back, and it’s in Nova Scotia where Laura has decided to set permanent roots.
