Bobby McGugan, PT, MScPT
Bobby believes in a patient centered approach to therapy in which he seeks to develop a rehabilitation program specific to each individual's set of problems, goals and lifestyle. He applies a combination of manual therapy techniques, functional exercise, and therapeutic modalities to help patients achieve positive outcomes. Bobby encourages his patients to take an active approach to their rehabilitation, and believes that a strong home exercise program and proper client education are vital to a successful physical therapy experience.
Outside of work, he enjoys volunteering in the community. A resident of St. Albert since 1996, he seeks opportunities to give back the community and to his profession. An active volunteer with St. Albert Special Olympics since 2010, Bobby enjoys coaching athletes in floor hockey, swimming and slow-pitch. In terms of service to the profession, Bobby has actively sought out opportunities such as providing physical therapy services at the 2014 ITU World Triathlon Grand Final, serving as an interviewer for the University of Alberta Physical Therapy MMI interviews, and volunteering at the Canadian Physical Therapy Association National Congress.
Bobby keeps active outside work, participating in many sporting activities. Running and road biking in and around St. Albert in summer are two of his favourite activities. He has played volleyball and basketball both competitively and recreationally since childhood. Golfing and hiking are also favourite summer activities while snowboarding and hockey at the outdoor rinks keep him active in winter.
