Upcoming Courses:

Exercise Principles Level 1 – Sunday, June 5th, 8:30 am – 12:30pm

OPTSC Orleans - 1420 Youville Dr #8, Orléans, ON K1C 7B3, Canada

EXERCISE PRINCIPLES LEVEL 1 (4-HOUR COURSE):

A clinical approach to exercise prescription that provides you with a structure on how to determine what level your patient is at and what exercise is appropriate for them. We will review a graded system which will help you determine when a patient is ready for exercise or if they would benefit from treatment/manual therapy prior to starting exercise. Also learn how to choose the appropriate level of exercise and learn stages to either scale the exercise up or down based on your patient's presentation. These principles are easily applied to any part of the body and will help take the 'guesswork' out of exercise selection and avoid the common error of giving patients exercises that are too high a level even though you may think it's easy.

Nishanth Kumar

Nishanth has been a registered physiotherapist since 2007. He is a graduate of McGill University, where he obtained his BSc. PT. He has also obtained a Masters of Clinical Science (MClSc) in Manipulative Therapy from Western University and completed his manual therapy certification levels in order to become a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physical Therapists (FCAMPT).

He has been able to explore different aspects of musculoskeletal rehabilitation having worked in private orthopedic clinics for eight years before coming to Ottawa in 2015. From 2008-2014 he was at a specialized clinic in Montreal where he had the opportunity to work with the general population as well as a number of high end athletes including NHL players, CFL players, professional boxers and MMA/UFC fighters.

Currently he manages and treats out of the OPTSC Main Street Location where he has the opportunity to work with the general population ranging from pediatric to geriatric along with a number of high end athletes. He is also part of the Rapid Access Low Back Clinic where he works with a team of Orthopaedic and Neuro Surgeons at the Ottawa Hospital to help patients with Assessment, Education and Triage.

One of his main mandates is to progress the field of physical therapy. He has previously taught as a guest lecturer at McGill University in the orthopedics classes of their physical therapy program. Currently he is a co-instructor for the Advanced Integrated Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Program on behalf of the Orthopaedic Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association. He has also instructed a number of courses along with mentoring a number of students through the AIM Level System and Western MClSc Program.

Having already made his impression in the field of rehabilitation with his progressive and open-minded methodology, Nishanth is looking forward to making education a priority and helping guide the next generation of physiotherapists.
