Physiotherapy

Miles Morgan
MScPT

Miles Morgan is the owner of Resolve Physio and Wellness. His treatment philosophy is simple: Whatever your physio/fitness/wellness/health/rehab goal is, he will do whatever he can to help you achieve it. If he can’t help you, he’ll do whatever he can to find someone who can. A three-time Ironman Canada Finisher, Miles is passionate about health, wellness, movement excellence, and sports performance. When it comes to rehab, Miles prides himself on keeping his clients as active as possible as they recover from injury. You won’t find him using the words “don’t” or “stop” very often when it comes to his rehab plans. He also understands that injury can impact all facets of your life, and he hopes to help all his clients avoid the injury “baditude”.

Miles graduated from the University of Alberta in 2009 with a Masters of Science in Physical Therapy. He also completed a Masters in Public Administration (MPA) in 2006. Miles has taken continuing education that has focused on orthopedics, acupuncture (CAFCI), intramuscular dry needling (Kinetacore and Gunn IMS), running analysis, Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA), Functional Movement Systems (FMS), and TMJ related disorders among many others.

Miles is authorized to perform spinal manipulation, refer for diagnostic imaging (X-ray, ultrasound and MRI), use dry needles in practice. He is a certified personal trainer. He also has experience working with oncology patients through the Cross Cancer Institute. On his days off, Miles can be found hanging out with his amazing wife and two kids in Edmonton’s River Valley.

Bev’s   interest in anatomy and human movement, combined with her strong passion for helping others, led her to graduate from MH Vicars School of Massage in 2013.

Bev’s expansive skill set includes deep tissue massage, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, joint mobilization, sports massage, cupping, as well as maternity and relaxation massage.

Bev is also a certified Stamina(R) massage therapist.  This technique focuses on aligning muscles in order to maximize mobility and function.
