Eva Jackman has been a lifetime athlete and active person who brings that passion and enthusiasm for helping others get out of pain and stay active and healthy. Before becoming a physiotherapist, she worked as an athletic therapist with the BC Lions football organization and the Team Canada women’s field hockey team. In addition to helping people with pain and injury, she also supports their lifestyle and fitness goals as a Pilates instructor as well as a personal trainer and fitness instructor, previously with Orangetheory, F45 and now National Spine Care.
Her clinical interests include back and neck pain/injuries, sports injuries and work-related injuries. While she related that she loves helping people of all walks of life get out of pain and regain their health and activity, she admits to having a real soft spot for working with the ageing and elderly population. She admits this is because she has remained quite close to her grandparents. Fall prevention and mobility are vitally important to help them enjoy a healthy and vibrant life!
On a personal note, Eva is a born-and-raised Albertan. She moved away to go to school, completing her undergrad degree on Vancouver Island and then her master’s degree in Physiotherapy at University College Dublin (Ireland). While in Ireland, she was captain of the University women’s rugby team.
After working in Ireland as a physiotherapist, she decided to move back home to be close to family. Calgary is the right place because when she is not working, she loves the active outdoor lifestyle biking, hiking and skiing! The mountains are calling!
