Alex Kim, PT
Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
With my background in Biology & Physiology and Physical Therapy, I provide a thorough assessment to figure out whether your symptoms are originating from muscles, bones/joints, or nerves. During the initial assessment, we will also spend time identifying any barriers to recovery (daily aggravating factors, job, posture, activities/sports). At the end of the assessment and subsequent treatment sessions, you will receive a comprehensive Physiotherapy treatment that consists of both hands-on therapy and progression of your exercises.
What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?
Individualized Physiotherapy Exercise Program
Education (Activity modification, postural awareness, Gradual return-to-work/sports)
Manual Therapy (Soft Tissue Release/Massage to relax tight muscles and Joint Mobilization to get stiff joints moving again)
What are you proud of in your practice?
I am proud to be in a profession that is embedded in both public and private healthcare system. Having had previously worked closely with family physicians and specialists, I strive to provide evidence-based rehabilitation medicine that focuses on empowering patients through movements & exercises. As they say, you don’t “get” physio, you “do” physio. I find it extremely rewarding when my patients feel like they are given the tools & resources to take care of themselves.
