Karen Boyle completed her Master of Science in Physical Therapy at the University of Toronto. Prior to this, Karen graduated with Magna Cum Laude from the University of Ottawa, receiving her Bachelor of Science with a specialization in Human Kinetics. As a past athlete herself, having played basketball at a competitive level for eight years, Karen is a strong advocate of sport and physical activity. Karen does not believe in providing solely passive therapy. She puts an emphasis on movement and functional exercises that are meaningful to her patients. The therapy Karen provides is a combination of manual therapy, acupuncture, individualized education and tailored exercises to suit each of her client’s needs. Karen is a firm believer in evidence-based practice and continual learning, and ensures that the treatment she provides is up to date, effective and safe.

Karen has worked with a wide array of patient populations in different therapy settings throughout her education and work experience. She has worked in inpatient and outpatient settings in both hospital and private practice environments. In addition to her knowledge of common musculoskeletal injuries and conditions including plantar fasciitis, patellofemoral syndrome, lower back pain, shoulder impingement and arthritis, Karen has also been instructed in the rehabilitation of the amputee and spinal cord populations. For the past two years Karen has been mentored and trained in baseline concussion testing and the rehabilitation of acute concussion and post-concussion syndrome. She is eager to continue to learn more about this condition and advocate for concussion policies and increased awareness to protect athletes as well as the general population.
