Physiotherapy Resident

Kyle earned his Masters of Physical Therapy from Western University. Prior to that, he completed his Bachelor of Kinesiology from the University of Waterloo, where he had the privilege of learning from some of the world’s top researchers in the field of low back pain. While at Waterloo, Kyle played varsity football and worked within the strength and conditioning department, training fellow university athletes and students. Before returning to graduate studies, he spent a year working as a strength coach at a private gym in his home province of Nova Scotia, where he was able to work with several QMJHL hockey players, collegiate athletes, and other active individuals. 

Athletics and performance have always played a big role in Kyle’s life, having participated in year round sports throughout his youth and university career. In recent years, Kyle has focused his athletic endeavours on powerlifting and has since discovered a keen interest in working with fellow barbell sport athletes. As a physical therapist and strength and conditioning specialist, his goal is to work collaboratively with clients to help keep them doing what they love while aiding them in injury risk management, return to activity, and improved performance. He focuses on using an active approach to rehab, combining exercise and education with manual therapy when appropriate to help empower his clients with the tools to live better and manage their function and pain independently. 

Kyle has interests in continuing his education on the topics of evidence-based approaches to pain management,  human performance, and concussion management. Outside of the clinic, Kyle can be found lifting weights, trying new coffees, binge watching Netflix, and spending time with his girlfriend Nadine and their cat Princess.
