Jolie Gale

Born and raised in Codroy Valley, Newfoundland, Jolie always knew that she wanted to work in the field of health and wellness. She attended St. Francis Xavier University from 1997-2001 where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Human Kinetics degree. From 2001-2006 Jolie had the opportunity to share her passion of health and fitness while she was employed as a PSP fitness and sports instructor at CFB Gagetown. During this time Jolie pursued extensive certifications and qualifications in the field which included Personal Trainer Certification through Canadian Personal Trainers Network, Certified Fitness Consultant (CSEP), Group Fitness Certification, Spin Cycle Certification (Reebok/YMCA), National Lifeguard Certification (Pool), and Crossfit Certifications.

From 2006-2008 Jolie continued her studies at Dalhousie University and earned her Masters of Science in Physiotherapy degree. In the past 10 years as a registered physiotherapist Jolie has continued her love of learning by participating in post-graduate courses which include several levels of acupuncture through the Acupuncture Foundation Institute of Canada, all levels of the McKenzie/MDT system of assessment and treatment, Mulligan Concept certification, Diagnosis and Treatment of Motor System Impairments certification, as well as courses though APTEI. While the focus of Jolie’s physiotherapy career has been mainly musculoskeletal/orthopaedic in nature, she has had the opportunity to work in diverse settings which, in addition to private practices and CAF bases, has included several retirement homes and long-term care homes.

In clinical practice Jolie’s treatment philosophy embraces treating the whole individual. She doesn’t just look at “what”, as in what is happening to cause pain or dysfunction, but also “who”. She encompasses the whole person and considers functional requirements for work and lifestyle. She also considers “why”. Why is this injury happening? Was there something that pre-disposed the person to the injury? And, if so, what can we do to prevent it from occurring again in the future. Jolie uses a variety of techniques to achieve client-centered goals. She utilizes an active approach to therapy and formulates a simple, personalized program for home use. She educates her clients about their injury/condition and equips them with the knowledge about what may make them better or worse so that they can reach their goals as soon as possible.

After travelling around the country, Jolie is happy to be settled back in the Maritimes. She embraces a busy life with 2 children and her husband. She enjoys staying active, working out, yoga, boating and getting home to Newfoundland whenever she can.

Having completed this post-graduate education, she attained internationally recognized qualifications in manual therapy.

Additionally, Caroline’s strong interest in treating pelvic health and improving quality of life has led her to pursue advanced training in pelvic health rehabilitation. Caroline treats many conditions such as urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, post-partum scar discomfort, and other pelvic pain conditions. Caroline continues to develop her skill set in this new specialty.
