About

Kevin graduated with a Bachelor of Science with Distinction before completing his physiotherapy degree (BScPT) with Distinction at the University of Alberta in 2001. He has since worked in Edmonton, New York City and Toronto.

Kevin is a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy (FCAMPT). Fellows have completed extensive post-graduate education and have attained internationally recognized qualifications in hands-on manipulative therapy. Fellows provide focused treatment based on research-guided techniques that speed up patient recovery while educating them about their condition to reduce the risk of relapse.

Kevin is currently an instructor with the Orthopaedic Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, and taught for New York-based Hands On Seminars, a manual therapy continuing education company, for 10 years. This gave him the opportunity to teach manual therapy skills to other physiotherapists throughout the United States, Turkey and South Africa. 

Kevin enjoys working with a variety of clientele, from elite athletes to seniors with hip and knee replacements. He is passionate about the benefits and necessity of appropriate strengthening for everyone, and looks at not only strength imbalances, but also movement patterning. Kevin often employs the use of video analysis and EMG biofeedback to assist in the recovery of his clientele, especially runners and other athletes. 

Outside of his professional life, Kevin enjoys playing soccer, volleyball, fitness and strength training, playing guitar and traveling the world. He is also a co-founder of All It Takes, a group which organizes an annual fundraising event to help local Toronto charities.
