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. She began her career in Calgary Alberta, and has called Nova Scotia her forever home since 2016.
Laura is an active runner and found her passion for the profession as a chronically injured young athlete 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 Ironman triathlon. She is highly involved in local running groups and is also an accomplished age-group athlete, who has represented Canada at the ITU Age Group World Championships for 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, instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilization, and kinesiology taping in conjunction with functional exercise to help you recover from, and prevent further injury.
Laura is the therapist to see if you are a runner or wanting to learn to run. She offers one-on-one running and gait assessments, so bring your sneakers and running gear! Laura has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the treatment and prevention of running injuries and will make it a priority to minimize down time and get you back to the sport that you love.
