Registered Physiotherapist-Pelvic Health
Chantale graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Health Promotion in 1997 from Laurentian University followed by a bachelor’s degree in Physiotherapy in 2001 from the University of Ottawa. She is registered with the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario as well as a member of the Women’s Health Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association.
Chantale has been a practicing physiotherapist at The Ottawa Hospital for the past 15 years. She has a range of experience with multiple inpatient population including post operative orthopedics, oncology, and cardio respiratory care. Her interest in women’s health issues is what prompted the transition into this fascinating world of pelvic health physiotherapy.
Chantale’s post graduate courses in pelvic health include male/female incontinence, pelvic pain, pregnancy and post partum care as well as pediatric bowel and bladder dysfunction. Services are provided in both French and English.
Her goals of care are to provide a safe and compassionate environment where patients feel empowered to take action and be fully involved in their journey towards health. She believes that everyone should be able to recover from pelvic health dysfunction and return to optimal function and activity.
Outside of the clinic, Chantale enjoys staying active through spinning classes and gym workouts, travelling, entertaining friends and spending time with her husband and 3 boys.

Gilbert Legault is a bilingual physiotherapist who received his Master’s degree in physiotherapy in 2010.
Gilbert will evaluate a client’s signs and symptoms as well as the person as a whole to ensure continuity of activities throughout the rehabilitation process. He works at finding the best exercises to help you get better, stay better and in the long run prevent injuries.
His approach is really simple but seems long forgotten. The body, if given proper mindset, food, rest and exercise, has the capacity and all the tools to heal itself. Gilbert facilitates the empowering process in you to make regular exercise part of your daily routine no matter how busy you are. He prefers a technical, thoughtful approach to training over an all out, no pain no gain style.
In addition to his Physiotherapy degree Gilbert has bachelor’s degrees in Education (2001) and Human Kinetics (2000). He worked for 4½ years as a teacher in various high schools throughout Eastern Ontario before refocusing his career and becoming a personal trainer.
Gilbert joined The Physio Space because he believes that the clinic values reflects his own personal vision of individualized, compassionate care for all clients. The one-on-one approach to patient care aims to improve the quality of life of his patients. He hopes to continue to grow in an environment that fits his personality and beliefs as a physiotherapist.
Gilbert has many years of personal training under his belt and has recently certified as an Holistic Lifestyle Coach Lv1 with the CHEK Institute. He is therefore looking forward to live by example and coach others to improve their health and fitness level.
When not working Gilbert loves to play with his son and daughter, see them grow and develop. Gilbert and his wife have chose a more simpler lifestyle, moving outside the city in late 2014 and planning a sustainable garden. Gilbert plays badminton and practices martial arts when time permits it. When he finds some time for himself, Gilbert likes to read about health and fitness related subjects such as food fermentation, gardening and therapeutic exercises.
