Physiotherapy in Spruce Grove
Physical Therapists provide a comprehensive assessment and develop a plan of care that uses treatment techniques to improve mobility, decrease pain, return function and prevent further disability. We also promote fitness and wellness for overall health.
A saying often used is “motion is lotion” and this describes the goal of treatment and education of the patient. Our bodies are made to move, and motion promotes the health of our joints and tissue as well as the restoration and maintenance of joint and tissue mobility.
Maximum Physical Therapy Benefits
Our physiotherapists, provide one-on-one patient care utilizing manual therapy, intramuscular stimulation (IMS), ultrasound, Interferential Current (IFC), various other modalities, education and exercise. One-on-one care is not your typical physiotherapy. No curtains or bouncing from patient to patient. We provided focused, private room care. They also believe that if a patient is educated about their condition they will be empowered to be part of the healing process.
Our physiotherapists often work together with other health practitioners such as chiropractors, personal trainers, kinesiologists, massage therapists, physicians, TCM’s, and physiatrists just to name a few. Our goal is to optimize the patients return to function, resolution of pain, or overall wellness and therefore it is in the patients best interest for us to utilize all resources that might be helpful and to work together. This is one of the many reasons they are excited about the concept of 360° Wellness as it brings us together under one roof which will make that collaboration that much more successful.

Get To Know Denise McDermott PT, BScPT, CGIMS
I received my bachelor of science in physical therapy from the University of Alberta in 1993. I went on to receive my Certificate of Intermediate Manual and Manipulative Physiotherapy in 2004 and my GunnIMS certificate in 2006. I have just begun my McKenzie courses and have completed part A.
I have been an exercise enthusiast my whole life from gymnastics to basketball in my youth, to fitness and running as I got older. I have an amazing group of women that I trail run with now and who convince me to do crazy things like Spartan runs!
I am an Alberta girl who grew up on a farm and I love being outside. My favorite time of year is harvest with the beautiful sunsets and the golden barley crops standing in the fields.
My workout consists of many different activities with running being my main focus but will be interspersed with, yoga, spin bike and strength training to keep things balanced. We have always encouraged an active lifestyle and our kids have been involved in school sports and minor hockey and dance throughout their youth. They continue to be active in their own lives through workouts, dance, snow boarding, running and golf. We spend the majority of our summer outside at the lake boating, fishing and enjoying nature. My husband’s passion is golf and now that the kids are older he has retired from slow pitch and volleyball and has a renewed addiction to golf. And this year after our trip to Bonaire we have become snorkeling enthusiasts.
Get To Know Randy Littmann PT, BScPT
I entered the field of physiotherapy outside the usual path. Initially I entered NAIT and obtained a diploma in Mechanical Industrial Engineering in 1984. After working in oilfield manufacturing and supply for a few years I returned to school and entered the University of Alberta whereupon I graduated from the faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine with a degree in physical therapy in 1992.
After graduating, I spent 6 years working in hospitals in Alberta and Oregon treating a wide variety of patients from intensive care to outpatients. During my time in the USA I was certified to perform Functional Capacity Evaluations (WorkWell Systems) which made a good fit with my engineering background and understanding of heavy industry.
My approach to treating clients is to listen to them. After I understand the issues and concerns I can then begin to assess them in order to restore range, strength and function while helping to reduce pain. Education plays a large role in my treatment sessions. I prefer to know that my clients understand what their problem is and how to avoid it in the future. I will occasionally lectures to groups on a wide range of topics. Please let me know if there is something you would like to have me speak to your group on.
Outside of work I keep active by being a husband to my wife and dad to my kids. I spend most evenings at home looking after my flock of farm geese (new hobby), completing home/ car repairs or maybe planning a winter vacation. My leisure reading can run the gamut from mycology to theology. I can occasionally be found playing bass in a garage band, perfecting my grilling/ meat smoking skills, volunteering as camp cook for weekend youth events or spending some time in the garden.
