At Scott Anderson & Associates Physiotherapy in Regina, Sask., we build our effective approach to care on the philosophy that exercise is medicine.
We have a distinguished reputation for excellence in the treatment and rehabilitation of sports injuries and our client roster includes professional and Olympic athletes in addition to recreational sports enthusiasts.
We also have a wide range of experience in treating clients who have sustained workplace injuries and motor vehicle accident injuries.
In each case, we start with an hour-long evaluation to determine the source of pain and to understand the long-term goals of our clients beyond the obvious challenge of easing the pain and starting the healing process.
We prescribe a series of exercises to be done in addition to physiotherapy so that you can be a partner in your own recovery. Some of these exercises can be done at our on-site gym and others can be done daily at home between visits to our facility.
Our modern 2,500 square foot clinic at 4535 Rochdale Boulevard features the latest in exercise equipment in our gym, as well as modern modalities including diagnostic ultrasound.
We are a direct access clinic, so you can book an appointment with us with or without a referral from your doctor or chiropractor.

Ellen Bearss, Bachelor of Kinesiology, CSEP-CPT
Ellen Bearss graduated with a Bachelor of Kinesiology with a major in Human Kinetics from the University of Regina. She is also a Certified Personal Trainer with the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP-CPT).
She joined Scott Anderson & Associates in April 2019, a move she believes will help her pursue her ambition of becoming a physiotherapist by providing her with hands-on experience and knowledge in treating a wide variety of patients in a physiotherapy setting.
“Growing up I was always active and involved in multiple sports,” she said. “This sparked a passion for physical activity and fitness as well as a curiosity about the human body, how it works, and how to optimize its health and performance.
“As I progressed through my undergraduate degree, I enjoyed learning in-depth about human anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and training principles, and became excited to use this knowledge to help others see improvements in their pain, function and performance.”
Her undergraduate fieldwork semester at the University of Regina was spent working for Scott Anderson as well as at the Dr. Paul Schwann Centre working with Exercise Physiologists in both an exercise therapy and cardiac rehabilitation setting.
“It gave me the opportunity to apply my pre-existing knowledge and skills in a clinical setting, as well as to learn from a highly qualified and experienced physiotherapist to develop new skills specific to the profession.”
She hopes to continue to expand these skills as an Exercise Therapist in anticipation of pursuing a Master’s Degree in Physiotherapy.
Dustin Lalonde, Bachelor of Kinesiology, CSEP-CPT
Dustin Lalonde graduated with a Bachelor of Kinesiology degree, majoring in Human Kinetics from the University of Regina and became a Certified Personal Trainer (CSEP-CPT) for the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology.
He did his undergraduate fieldwork placement at the University of Regina with Scott Anderson as well as at the Dr. Paul Schwann Centre, working alongside exercise physiologists in both exercise therapy and cardiac rehabilitation.
His curiosity about the limits and potential of the human body guided his decision to study kinesiology. He says this area of study was fascinating to him and made him think about how it could benefit others.
“Understanding the extent to which exercise can benefit everyone has driven me to further pursue my learning in this area,” he says.
“Physiotherapy is a career that would allow me to use my existing knowledge about human anatomy, physiology and biomechanics and expand upon it to treat individuals suffering from musculoskeletal pathologies. The rewarding experience of using my knowledge and skills to improve the lives of others while being an integral part of a clinical treatment team is very appealing to me and is why I aspire to become a physiotherapist.”
He joined Scott Anderson & Associates Physiotherapy in Regina in April of 2019, bringing a special interest in athletic strength and conditioning, and mobility.
