LONG KIM (KEN) NGUYEN
BKin, MScPT, CSEP-CEP
Ken graduated from the University of Alberta physiotherapy program in 2016 and has been fine-tuning his practice in the orthopedic setting since. He is trained in biomedical dry needling and spinal manipulative therapy but finds these passive treatments alone rarely will get a client back to their occupational or recreational sport successfully. That is why he will always incorporate easy active exercises and drills to help drive recovery and performance forward.
He has a special interest in treating knee injuries, especially those who have undergone ACL repair surgery.
When not in the clinic, you can find Ken staying active by running away from mosquitoes, blackflies and bears during his backcountry camping adventures, the occasional half marathon or road race, and weight training. He is fond of all things Subarus but is currently taking an interest in the German car scene.
