Richard KleinPhysiotherapist

Biography

In 2009 I accepted a soccer scholarship to Baker University, Kansas, with the ultimate dream of one day playing professionally. Within my first year I suffered a near career-ending injury that crushed my hopes of playing professional soccer, but fueled my desire to help others overcome their own debilitating injuries and conditions. 4 years later I graduated from Baker University with Magna Cum Laude honours in Exercise Science. I then pursued my Master’s of Science in Physical Therapy at the University of Alberta, graduating in 2017.

I am also a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and have over 4 years of experience as a personal trainer, specializing in athletic performance and weight lifting. My goal as a physical therapist is to bridge these worlds of human performance and rehabilitation so that my patients not only return to their pre-injury statuses, but exceed them.
