Carly Spaulding

Resident Physiotherapist

Carly is a born Calgarian with a passion for our beautiful outdoors. She holds a Bachelor of Community
Rehabilitation and Disability Studies from the University of Calgary and a Masters of Physical Therapy
through the University of Alberta. Between receiving her degrees, Carly worked as a Community Support
Manager for vulnerable populations.

As a young adult, Carly was an active member of various sports teams including volleyball, basketball,
and softball. Her passions quickly gravitated towards the high-contact world of lacrosse and
rugby. Given the nature of her chosen sports, she spent time as a physiotherapy patient herself and
became drawn to the holistic rehabilitation approach physiotherapy has to offer. Although retirement
from contact sport came early, Carly still loves to snowboard and hike on the weekends.

Carly is a strong believer in educating patients and providing them with the tools needed to live
independent and active lifestyles. Her approach to rehabilitation is a mixture of manual therapy and
exercise, with a heavy concentration on progressively loading and challenging the body. Carly enjoys
thinking outside the box and tailoring her rehabilitation programs to meet each individual’s needs and
goals.
