• Mila Pavlovic, Dipl.PT

    Being a Registered Physiotherapist with over 25 years of clinical experience in different countries, such as Canada, China, Serbia, Sweden, Saudi Arabia, allowed me to see the world and expand my knowledge in a completely different way. I am able to understand and apply multi-culturalism in its true meaning. Working in multinational, multidisciplinary teams of professionals is something I am very comfortable with.

    While previously residing in Canada I worked mostly in private clinical practice and I have done multiple postgraduate courses in myofascial, craniosacral therapy, acupuncture, osteopathy, sports med, industrial rehabilitation, functional evaluation, case management and a variety of others and I strongly believe that education never stops if you want to give your best to the people you treat.

    Upon returning to Europe, over past the few years I have had the chance to work in the field of international elite sports, which I enjoy immensely. I have been the Head PT for the Chinese National speed skating teams, both short and long track. I am also the Head PT for the Serbian National short track speed skating and inline skating teams. I was a Member (Head PT) of the official Swedish medical team at the 2019 European Athletics U20 Championship.

    Being able to utilize my knowledge and skills as a physiotherapist, apply it to the sport-specific needs of athletes, and watch them excel and achieve great results gives me professional satisfaction and also the desire to work harder and learn more so that we can achieve even greater results.

    Some of my athletes are: Wu Dajing (2018 Olympic gold medalist and world record holder on 500m), Li Jinyu (2018 Olympic silver medal 1500m at the age of 16), Dr. Darko Sarovic (European and Balkan Track and Field champion 60 and 100m sprint and Swedish National dodge ball team member), just to name the few.

    I am bilingual (English and Serbian but I can also include Croatian, Bosnian and other former Yugoslav languages.

    With my present return to Canada it is my pleasure to offer you my knowledge, experience and multicultural understanding and to serve your medical needs to the best of my abilities.
