Michelle Cojulun, MScPT, BSc, MRSc, FCAMPT, IMS


Michelle is an Orthopedic Physiotherapist.

Michelle completed both her Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 2013 and her Master of Science in Physical Therapy in 2015 from the University of Alberta.

Since becoming a Physiotherapist, Michelle has been passionate about continued education. In 2020, she completed her post-professional Master of Rehabilitation Science, with special focus on Orthopedic Manual Therapy and Clinical Reasoning from the University of British Columbia. In 2021, she became a Fellow of the Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy, an internationally recognized organization that aims to help patients get better, recover faster, and stay healthier.

Michelle has also taken additional courses focusing on management of chronic and neuropathic conditions, as well as focused courses in Athletic Soft Tissue Release and Advanced Shoulder Clinical Seminars. She is also certified in Acupuncture and Intramuscular Stimulation Dry Needling. Additionally, Michelle has special interests in Nerve Pain and Neurodynamic management of injuries. These include interventions that facilitate the nervous system and reduce sensitivity, improving the pathways and connections between nerves, pain, and the brain.

She has also partnered with local Dentists to assist in the management of Temporomandibular (Jaw) pain, which can include treatment of stress, headaches, and tension, as well as a biopsychosocial approach to finding underlying causes and triggers for pain.

To Michelle, treating a problem is not enough. She believes that understanding ‘why’ the problem exists is even more important. To do this, she will often look beyond body impairments, facilitating ways to change underlying contributors and working with clients to encourage maximum self-efficacy. She does not believe in finding a quick fix for a client’s problem and will work extensively with clients to find meaningful, practical, and long-lasting solutions that will go beyond the time in the clinic.  

Michelle is passionately involved in Clinical Education and is a Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine Associated Clinical Educator. She is involved with mentorship of Physiotherapy students and practical education.

When not in the clinic, Michelle can be found travelling with her husband Andrew, snuggling her two cats, Henry and Rosa, and participating in fun activities such as cooking, painting, and rock climbing.

Michelle hopes that her experience, attitude, and desire to help clients learn more about themselves will help clients have an amazing physiotherapy experience, feel better, and ultimately, stay better.
