Ian Budge- MscPT, Bkin, CSCS.
Ian began his post secondary education in Toronto with a 4 year undergraduate degree in Kinesiology and Health Science from York University. Upon acceptance to Queen’s University, Ian moved his life to Kingston where he completed a professional masters degree in Physiotherapy. For nearly a decade, Ian has been working in private practice treating orthopaedic injuries and helping Kingston’s finest get back on their feet. Commitment and dedication to his career, health care, and physical activity have made Ian feel extremely grateful he has the opportunity to help people on a daily basis.
Additional training amongst regulated health professionals is essential in order to maintain the highest quality health care services. Ian has taken many postgraduate courses in manual therapy, acupuncture, and therapeutic exercise in an effort to provide his patients with the fastest possible recovery. Most recently, Ian has focused his practice on Shockwave Therapy and Functional Dry Needling (Kinetacore). He feels they are powerful tools with the potential to maximize overall speed of recovery.
Postgraduate training as a certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS) with the NSCA for the past 7 years has allowed Ian to expand on his previous knowledge base when it comes to exercise. Correctly prescribed exercise is essential for a client’s full recovery from injury. Whether for clients who seek pain relief or who simply want to get back to the activities they value the most, professional guidance is important. Ian will take the time to ensure the gains made during physiotherapy sessions don’t get wasted with a lack of attention to detail.
Ian enjoys an active lifestyle which usually includes hitting the gym, backcountry camping, and sports of any kind. From a young age, physical activity has always played a big part in Ian’s life; regularly playing hockey, baseball, golf, soccer, volleyball and his new favourite – Ultimate Frisbee. In his down time, Ian also enjoys relaxing with some of the finer things in life; such as drinking a rich espresso, exploring new travel destinations with his wife, and strumming on the acoustic guitar. Being both a happy and hardworking individual, Ian provides an optimistic outlook for his patients dealing with all kinds of injuries and functional restrictions.
