Heather Curilla

Heather Curilla,
Physiotherapist / Redcord Practitioner

Heather Curilla has many years of experience as a physiotherapist here in Calgary. She has taken numerous post- graduate courses in this field. Some of these include the Gunn IMS certification, Intermediate manual therapy, and the Redcord Neurac certification.

Currently, Heather’s sole focus is work with an apparatus called the Redcord System.

This Norwegian founded suspension exercise system is effective for treating injuries and pain by activating core muscles, correcting muscle imbalances and offering progressive strengthening through the use of the systems’ bungees and ropes.

Heather has been working with the Redcord for the past 10 years and is very impressed with the results that this system brings for patients. Working with this exercise-based apparatus truly demonstrates that exercise IS medicine.

In her spare time, she loves to golf and jog. Heather’s personal goal is to run a half marathon once a year!

Russ Gothard

Russ Gothard,
BSc (Hon.) Psych, MScPT

Russ was born in the UK before moving to the Calgary area as a kid. He spent way too many years in university, completing undergrad degrees focused on zoology, computer science, and psychology before finding his calling as a physio, graduating from the University of Alberta with his Master's in Physical Therapy. Since then he has continued his education with post-grad courses in vestibular physiotherapy, spinal manipulation, advanced dry needling, the GLA:D hip/knee osteoarthritis program, TMJ dysfunction, modern manual therapy, neurokinetic therapy, FMS, and more.

Russ takes a global approach to movement, taking the whole body into account to determine the source of pain and dysfunction. He uses manual therapy and modalities such as dry needling to improve pain and function in the short-term, and tailored exercises to make long-term changes.

On the weekends you can often find him climbing, camping, or paddling when it's warm, or playing guitar and watching bad movies with his cats Spike and Dru when it's cold.

Blair Puente

Blair Puente,
Clinic Support Manager

Blair began learning about the world through the unique lens of ballet.  At the age of 17, he started his career dancing at the National Ballet of Canada and then rode into the sunset five years later to join the Alberta Ballet. While still performing around the world, meeting amazing people from myriad cultures and countries, Blair acquired his RMT and ART® certifications. With the birth of his second child, Blair knew it was time to hang up the dancing shoes and begin a new career. With a great stroke of luck, a management position opened up and Blair was able to serve as Company Manager and Program Manager with Alberta Ballet. Hosting educational presentations for up to 1,000 students at the Jubilee Auditoria and local schools was one of his favourite chances to be onstage after "the curtain went down" on his dance career.  Blair also served as a union and board representative, coordinated logistics and communications for two CBC film collaborations, participated in and coordinated media interviews and managed multiple US and Canadian tours.

With Momentum Health, Blair delights in meeting and engaging with Calgarians (in person and online!) who are passionate about health, whether physicians, employers, individuals, or performing arts and sport groups.

The location at Deerfoot city is beautiful, clean and modern!! All the staff were incredibly friendly and super knowledgeable! Rebecca helped me identify the knee pain I have had for many years and developed a plan to get me back to feeling great. As a long time athlete, I have gone to a number of facilities for physio and I would definitely recommend momentum health as a fantastic spot for all your physio needs!
