MEET KENNETH C. W. SALMON
B.P.E., BSc. P.T., M.C.P.A.,
Over 35 Years' Experience
Member of Canadian Physiotherapy Association
Ken Salmon has combined his degrees in physical education and physiotherapy to develop an active approach to physiotherapy, over the past 30 years. Ken is continually keeping abreast of new approaches in rehabilitation as well as new technology to assist patients in accessing our services. He recently received the latest training in concussion management. We now know much more about the physiology and assessment of concussion. Evaluation and proper progression of exercise are key components in assisting people returning to normal activity, work and sport. Evidence based treatment is always striven for and when you combine this with experience and a very personalized approach the results are most often very positive. Ken likes to stay active himself, participating in sailing, hiking, hockey, and skiing. He is really just trying to keep up to his three sons.
