Physical therapist for Cyclist

Anyone know of a good physical therapist who is experienced with cyclists in North Edmonton, Canada preferably outside main city?

I've been riding my CAAD10 for a couple of years now after a 20 year hiatus from cycling. I injured by back a month and a half ago and despite rest and low impact strengthening and stretching the soreness refuses to go away. So my doctor recommended I see a physical therapist. Also, I've never had a bike fitting.

Will most physical therapists be OK or should I find one who has experience with cyclists? I think it may be time for a fitting. Should I do it sooner or wait until my sore back feels better? It doesn't prevent me from riding but it does prevent me from riding hard.

Also, as far as fitters go, any reason I might choose Steve Carre over Nate Loyal.

Thanks.

Any help will be highly appreciated!

Did your doctor diagnose any physical problem or injured tissue / muscle that a therapist should be concerned about?
Not visited any doctor or therapist yet. Last week, I watched few YT videos about it and according to those doctors, I should visit therapist to recover quickly.

Thanks to all of you and especially those who recommended me a good physiotherapist in north and south Edmonton.
