Our Story

April and Keith Weber

April and Keith Weber both Central Albertans. April was raised on a farm just outside of Alix where she grew up playing every sport she could from school sports like volleyball, basketball, and track to her true passion, ringette, "the fastest game on ice". Just like her mother who coached her, April now coaches her own daughter Jade who plays ringette for the Central Alberta AA Sting. April graduated from Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School and went on to get her Bachelor's Degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Alberta. During her time at University she went to the Ringette National Championships with a select Team from Central Alberta where they won Gold. She also worked with a variety of sports teams as a Trainer/Therapist. After graduating from University, she travelled to Europe for several months then worked for a short time as a physio in the U.S. She returned home and worked as a physio in Stettler and Lacombe while taking post-graduate physio courses to advance her knowledge.

Keith grew up in Sylvan Lake where his parents owned and operated a campground. It was here he saw how much work it takes to run a small business but how rewarding it could be. He also enjoyed the steady influx of potential friends that rolled in during the summer holidays and still keeps in touch with many of his cronies from the "Don's campground days". In fact, he still plays hockey with the boys from Lacombe who he initially met at hockey school in Sylvan Lake. He graduated from Notre Game College, which was a dream come true for him as he drove by Wilcox many times with his family as a child on their way to visiting relatives in southern Saskatchewan. After graduation he spent several years travelling, working at a variety of occupations where he could indulge in a love of the great outdoors such as treeplanting, construction, and rigs. He finally realized helping people was his calling and he applied for Physical Therapy at the U of A, graduating from the program in 1998. His plans to be a travelling physio were derailed when he met and fell hopelessly in love with a girl named April so back to central Alberta he moved and has lived happily since.

Keith and April found that they shared similar philosophies on many things, especially their belief that their was a different way to practice physiotherapy. The only way to do this was to set up their own clinic, so in 2001 they left the security of their comfortable jobs and set up the first Weber Physiotherapy Clinic downtown.
