Long Kim (Ken) Nguyen
Physiotherapist
BKin, MscPT, CSEP-CEP

Ken graduated the University of Alberta physiotherapy program in 2016 and has been fine tuning his practice in the orthopaedic setting since. He has worked at a busy sport medicine clinic for over four years helping recreational to professional athletes return to sport from a chronic tendonitis injury to a complex ACL reconstruction repair. He enjoys using biomedical dry needling with manual and manipulative therapies to drive healing forwards, but he finds these passive treatments alone rarely will get a client back to their occupational or recreational sport successfully. That is why he will always pair easy active exercises and drills to continue to optimize recovery and push athletic performance forwards.

When he is not in the clinic, you can find this Calgarian-born helping out the Calgary Police Fitness Unit as an on-call instructor. Ken enjoys staying active by running away from mosquitoes, blackflies and bears during his backcountry camping adventures and enduring the occasional half marathon or trail race for the bonus free swag at the end.

That is why he will always pair easy active exercises and drills to continue to optimize recovery and push athletic performance forwards.

When he is not in the clinic, you can find this Calgarian-born helping out the Calgary Police Fitness Unit as an on-call instructor. Ken enjoys staying active by running away from mosquitoes, blackflies and bears during his backcountry camping adventures and enduring the occasional half marathon or trail race for the bonus free swag at the end.
