Prior to studying physical therapy, he obtained a Bachelor of Science in Human Kinetics, graduating with first-class honours, from St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, NS.
Kyle was born and raised in Nelson, BC. He grew up playing in the mountains and has been involved in athletics since a young age, including soccer, basketball, volleyball, and martial arts. His passion and interest in human movement and performance, along with his own athletic injuries, helped steer him into the rehabilitation world.
Kyle has worked in acute care, community outpatient, and private practice settings and has enjoyed working with clients of all ages (even 6-week- olds!) and from all walks of life. He has a keen interest in orthopedics and musculoskeletal injuries related to sport or just everyday life. Since graduating from PT school, Kyle has completed several courses in manual therapy, including spinal and peripheral manipulation (Jim Meadows), mobilization of muscles (Charlie Kelly), and is currently working toward his diploma in manipulative physiotherapy from the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy. He has also completed courses in anatomical acupuncture with the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada, and is certified in the Selective Functional Movement Assessment through Gray Cook’s Functional Movement Systems.
Kyle is a member of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, Ontario Physiotherapy Association, and the College of Physiotherapists of Ontari0.
