Christopher Nedelko BA(Kin), MScPT

Chris completed his Master of Science in Physiotherapy with honours at the University of Brighton, United Kingdom. Previously, he completed a Bachelor of Arts in Kinesiology with honours at Wilfrid Laurier University and became a Registered Kinesiologist (R.Kin) in 2015, helping clients alleviate their pain through individualized exercise programs.

Before becoming a physiotherapist, Chris spent his adolescence heavily involved in rep sports. These experiences and his unique first-hand experience with injuries has given him a deep understanding of the relationship between movement and the body. Chris completed his dissertation with honours on the effects of strength training for adults with acute nonspecific low back pain. He has a deep understanding of how a biopsychosocial approach can help manage pain and enjoys researching the latest evidence to assist in his clinical decision making.

Chris is passionate about sharing his knowledge, experience, and expertise with his clients. He believes every treatment plan is unique and uses a combination of manual therapy and exercise. He empowers his clients through education and ensures they are equipped with the best tools to manage themselves at home, the office, or when hitting the pavement for a daily run. Chris has experience in managing common injuries, athletic populations, and neurological conditions. He has a history of personal training and providing exercise prescription for individuals with Parkinson’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis. He has taken Functional Movement Systems (FMS) professional courses to better understand how to assess and treat clients with faulty movement patterns, which may be contributing to pain and dysfunction. Chris is actively pursuing courses in manual therapy and is interested in taking courses in acupuncture, dry needling, and neurokinetic therapy.

When not at the clinic, Chris enjoys cooking, learning a new song on the guitar, travelling and playing sports.
