Kevin Arkko, PT

Kevin completed his undergraduate degree in Sports Performance at the University of Alberta while playing football for the Golden Bears. He then went on to complete his master’s degree in Physiotherapy at the U of A as well. At this time, he was working as a strength coach for the Alberta Sport Development Centre, teaching the fundamentals of Olympic weightlifting to junior level provincial athletes from backgrounds ranging from figure-skating to rugby to archery. Kevin was also the head coach for Special Olympics Edmonton Powerlifting, and he helped lead multiple athletes to new personal bests in the squat, bench and deadlift.

 

Kevin has spent time working in spinal cord injury but more recently has been working in private practice where he uses his background in strength and conditioning to bridge the gap between traditional rehabilitation and high-performance. He utilizes an active approach to treatment, consisting largely of corrective exercises to help clients return to their desired level of function. Kevin has completed post-graduate courses in manual therapy and acupuncture, both of which serve as useful adjuncts to therapeutic exercise. 

 

 

Jackie Reynolds, PT

 

Jackie graduated from U of A with a BScPT and has a wide variety of clinical experiences starting in Alberta before moving to Saskatchewan, onto Ontario and finally back to Alberta again to settle in Calgary.

She has completed numerous manual therapy courses ranging from the assessment and treatment of joint dysfunction, to myofascial tightness and mobilization of the nervous system. She is certified with the AFCI for acupuncture and certified in Biomedical Dry Needling for the treatment of trigger points. She has also attended various courses related to adaptive and core strengthening as well as active strategies to help with persistent pain.

Jackie feels that treatment is a team effort with the physio providing the hands-on work and relevant information so that the patient can actively enhance their recovery.

She enjoys traveling with her husband, practicing yoga and walks/play time with a young-at-heart yellow lab.

Anna has participated in additional training for complex pain management, functional movement screening, running gait analysis, and concussion assessment. She has completed AA1: Foundations of Anatomical Acupuncture and is currently working on her certification through AFCI.
