Claudia Wagner Searle,

PHYSIOTHERAPIST

Biography

Clinical Practice Area: Orthopedics, Neurological, Women’s & Pelvic Health

Areas of Interest: Women’s and pelvic health, female athletes, all musculoskeletal conditions and neurological conditions 

After a 4-year undergrad in human kinetics, Claudia chose to pursue her career in physiotherapy to help people work through movement to improve their quality of life. After working on a research project comparing the female anatomy to the male anatomy and the risk for running injuries, Claudia quickly developed an interest in the field. As an avid female runner, she found her passion in women’s health. Through this passion, she hopes to cater to patients’ needs to allow them to maintain a high quality of life. After shadowing a pelvic floor therapist and having a physiotherapy placement with Bloom, Claudia saw the rewarding feeling of helping individuals through pelvic floor physiotherapy.

Claudia focuses her patient’s treatment plan by orienting sessions around a meaningful task. She is a strong believer that treatment should be goal-oriented and patient-focused to provide an individualized treatment plan. Claudia is looking forward to starting her career by helping individuals achieve their goals.

When she is not working at Bloom, she is helping individuals with neurological conditions obtain more function and independence through their everyday tasks. When not practicing as a physiotherapist, Claudia enjoys living an active lifestyle filled with outdoor activities including swimming, biking, hiking and running.

Claudia is looking forward to expanding her post-graduate education throughout her career.
