The Bridge YQL Team

Niko Saler


“I am passionate about helping people reach their highest capacity in movement and performance. My goal as a physiotherapist is to take this approach into helping empower every one of my patients in their own personal comeback.”

Morgan Branch


“I like to blend my nerdy fascination with movement/mechanics with my love of fitness and sport performance. My focus is on working with athletes to help them move better, to understand their body better and become more resilient.”

Matthew Okrainec


“I love rehabbing all types of musculoskeletal injuries, but I have a special interest in sports injury management, lower extremity injuries, post-op rehab, and individuals who are struggling with persistent pain complaints. The plan is always to get you back to what you love to do.”

We have seen two physiotherapists at The Bridge- Niko S for a whiplash injury and Matt O when my son had a concussion. Both were extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. They took the time to assess our injuries thoroughly and in the context of our unique circumstances. We received education and strategies for best healing in the long-term. So rarely do you meet a healthcare professional who goes above and beyond in the way they do at The Bridge. Wish there were more than five stars to give!

Stacey Goldstein

Fantastic facility, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Great to have a place like this in the community that puts athletes first. Would highly recommend to any athlete at any stage of their career.

Sam Heap

Very knowledgeable with advice and suppport for sports injuries of all sorts. My body has never felt better. Highly recommend.

Karim Broodhagen

These guys are joining the fight to change the physiotherapy industry for the better. This model has the individual off the bed as soon as possible, and into exercise programming that will make a lasting change. This is the new way forward and we are lucky to call them colleagues. If you’re in the Lethbridge area, I highly recommend this clinic to be your go to for all injuries.
