About Me

Hello, Bonjour, Buna! my name is Amanda Ager, I am a Canadian physiotherapist presently living in Romania. I have over 7 years of clinical experience, working firstly as a Military Physiotherapy Officer and then as an orthopaedic physiotherapist in private practice. I am presently working towards my Ph.D. at Ghent University. My expertise lies in shoulder pathologies, neuromuscular control, proprioceptive and motor control, as well as making evidence based-practice easily accessible to clinicians. I am looking forward to contributing to the world of Physiopedia!
