About Us

Edmonton PHYSIOTHERAPIST

Meet Rise Physio!

We’re stoked that you are here. Rise started in 2020, simply because we believed that our clients deserved better. 

We are a physiotherapy clinic in the heart of Edmonton that puts the focus on YOU. We have a small and mighty team of physiotherapists who are all extremely passionate about what they do. 

At Rise, we embrace diversity and uphold the rights of all individuals. We do not tolerate any form of discrimination, and we are committed to providing LGBTQ2S+ individuals with respectful, inclusive, and culturally competent physiotherapy services.

Meet Kayla Clarke!

Kayla Clarke (Nguyen)  is a physiotherapist who is extremely passionate about what she does. Although you will be just one-on-one with her, you can expect an energetic and vibrant environment. She wants nothing more than to help you get back to living your best life. 

Growing up on the east coast of Canada playing everything from competitive hockey, to soccer, to softball – she is no stranger to a wide variety in sports (and sport injuries!). On top of that, she completed her Bachelor of Kinesiology at Memorial University of Newfoundland, followed up by completing her MSc. PT in Glasgow, Scotland, before moving back home to Canada. She has done plenty of post-grad training in dry needling, manual therapy, sport rehab, and more! She loves helping everyone from the classic weekend warriors, busy parents, competetive athletes/gym-goers, and seniors!

 Present day, Kayla is found adventuring outdoors with her young daughter & husband, trying to get out to the rockies for hiking/camping or  snowboarding, squeezing in a workout, drinking coffee and enjoying some delicious local beer. Travelling & repeating all of the above is also pretty rad. 

Meet Lewis Anderson!

Lewis Anderson is a physiotherapist who fell in love with movement, health and fitness at a young age. Through his experience with gymnastics, a bachelor degree of science in kinesiology and a masters degree in physiotherapy, he knows first hand how an injury/pain/dysfunction can interfere with life. Given the opportunity, he would love to get to know you as a person and help with whatever brought you through the door.

When away from the clinic, you may find Lewis falling gracefully while snowboarding, losing repeatedly at spikeball, rock climbing routes that are too difficult and lifting a weight or two in the gym. Recently, he has started to put a few miles under his trail running shoes and likes to hike up things with a lot of incline. Don’t be shy, say hi if you see him in the clinic and don’t hesitate to ask him a question.

Meet Harmehek Sidhoo!

Harmehek’s aim in physical therapy is to help people understand their rehabilitative journey through education and movement. 

She thrives off of enhancing her interpersonal relationships and is focused on providing client-centred care, where the client leads the discussion and as a team, you come up with a treatment plan that best fits your lifestyle. Harmehek’s goal with her clients is to promote education and making sure her clients understand their steps to rehabilitation. 

Harmehek has an extensive background in neurological rehab, spending most of her time working with individuals who’ve overcome stroke and brain injuries. She also has a keen interest in sport and performance as she has been involved in sports medicine throughout her education. What she considers most fundamental to assisting clients from any population is communication, so she takes pride in her ability to connect with people from various backgrounds. She has completed her undergraduate degree in Human Kinetics from the University of British Columbia, and soon after completed her Masters of Science in Physical Therapy at the University of Alberta. 

In her spare time, Harmehek enjoys staying active by participating in runs, strength training and climbing and loves to learn about new cultures through traveling. She also has a passion in creative arts as some of her hobbies include painting and sketching! 

Meet Jess Yee!

Jess is a highly dedicated and skilled administrator with a background in Kinesiology. With her admin experience and human movement background she is able to deliver excellent patient care and customer service ensuring the smooth operation of the clinic.

Jess’ journey in the healthcare industry began with a profound interest in health and wellness and a desire to make a positive impact on people’s lives. She is deeply committed to ensuring that patients receive the highest standard of care and support during their journey to recovery. From scheduling appointments and managing patient records to coordinating with healthcare providers and insurance companies, she handles all administrative aspects, ensuring a seamless and hassle-free experience for patients.

Outside of work, Jessica enjoys hanging out with her dog Kikay and cat Billie
