Hilary McDermott
MScPT, BScKIN

Growing up I always knew that I wanted to help others, and I truly feel that I am fulfilling that passion with my career. I believe in a holistic approach to treatment and incorporate physiotherapy techniques, postural correction, functional exercise, and education with the goal of restoring function and preventing recurrence. I believe that physiotherapy should be preventative in nature, not just reactive. I love working with women before or during their pregnancies to help avoid common post-partum concerns. However, I also believe that it is never too late to address these issues that women often suffer from in silence. I strive to empower women by educating them on what their body’s optimal function should entail.

I believe my own recent experience with pregnancy and childbirth has bettered me as a practitioner, and I love sharing my journey with patients. Outside of work, I am soaking up every moment of my son’s life and enjoy staying active through working out and yoga.

My credentials include:

  • Masters of Science in Physical Therapy from the University of Alberta
  • Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology from Wilfrid Laurier University
  • Advanced training in Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation (some of the conditions I treat include urinary and fecal incontinence, overactive bladder, pelvic organ prolapse, pre- and post-natal conditions, pelvic pain, and ano-rectal disorders)
  • Acupuncture (AFCI) and Advanced Functional Needling

I recommend Hilary to all my clients. Not only have I benefited from her treatments personally, but as a RMT and doula she is the perfect addition to anyone’s pregnancy, birth and postpartum team! She is incredibly professional and makes you feel 100% comfortable as soon as you walk in the door. Book with Hilary right away, you won’t regret it!

I cannot thank Hilary enough for all her help throughout my pregnancy! Hilary is a well-rounded Physiotherapist with focus on all areas of pelvic floor health and orthopedic concerns. Hilary’s approach is professional and she went above and beyond to ensure I felt comfortable with my treatment sessions. I feel more aware of what is going on in my body and have had a significant amount of pain relief in receiving pelvic floor physiotherapy. With her extensive knowledge and specialized treatment I have been pain free and feel confident going into the birth of my first baby. Hilary is very passionate about what she does and this reflects in her approach and ongoing practice. I look forward to continuing pelvic floor care with Hilary based on the major benefits I have experienced this far.

Hilary is a Physiotherapist any woman can trust! I would highly recommend Hilary’s services specifically to pelvic floor and women’s health.

Hilary provided the most compassionate care; she listens, she is understanding and best of all I received the most helpful exercises!  I received benefit from my visit that same day.

​I saw Hilary McDermott for pelvic floor physiotherapy after my second child. She was simply the BEST! She asked what my goals were and we worked together to achieve them. I got results sooooo much faster than I expected! Being able to exercise again was one of my main goals. In just 5 months I was doing all the activities I loved without any pelvic problems. She individualized my physiotherapy program to find strategies that worked for me to achieve my results. To top it off she is just a lovely person! I can't thank her enough!
