Kyle AikenRegistered Physiotherapist

    Kyle obtained his Master’s degree in Physical Therapy at Western University. He has since specialized in treating chronic and acute musculoskeletal disorders and chronic pain of various natures, such as post-operative rehabilitation, work-related injuries, and sports injuries. 

    Favouring an active approach, he orients his treatments according to your goals to guide you where you want to go, be it living without pain, facilitating activities of daily living with chronic conditions, or more fitness-oriented goals. Kyle is a certified strength and conditioning specialist with over 10 years of experience in coaching and he is a strong advocate for exercise as medicine. He considers collaboration essential for developing effective, individualized, and enjoyable treatment plans.

    To that end, he favours a therapeutic style that prioritizes patient education and active forms of treatment such as active manual therapy and gradual activity. Such an approach usually minimizes the number of treatments necessary by giving the keys to well-being in the hands of the patient. If appropriate, he completes his interventions with passive treatments like massage. 

    Outside of the clinic, Kyle can be found searching for the best baked goods and espressos Ottawa has to offer, rock climbing, watching formula 1, and spending time with his partner.
