Ryan’s interest for physical therapy started at an early age with multiple injuries from hockey and baseball. After a few different positive experiences in the clinic as a patient, Ryan was sold on physiotherapy as a career. Ryan graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from the University of Western Ontario in 2021 and returned home to Alberta to complete a Master’s of Science in Physical Therapy (MScPT) at the University of Alberta.
A firm believer in providing a holistic approach to rehabilitation, Ryan’s treatment approach incorporates a combination of evidence-based interventions, manual therapy techniques, therapeutic exercise and education. Ryan is passionate about empowering clients to not only return to activity but also provide strategies to prevent recurrence of injury (because who wants to do rehab all the time?!).
A goal of Ryan’s is to provide people with the tools, knowledge and confidence needed for effective self-management long after your rehabilitation ends. Ryan takes pride in being able to provide care to a variety of individuals regardless of your age or level of exercise experience. From competitive athletes to weekend warriors, to those looking to get into exercise for the first time, there is a place for everyone to start and reach their goals.
Growing up Ryan spent most of his time on the ice or the baseball field, playing competitively until going off to university. Now he spends more time watching than playing but is still trying to get out there as much as he can. Ryan is always open for sports discussion and constantly taking new food, coffee and travel recommendations. In the summer you can see him working on his golf game or checking out some of the trails around the city!
