Jordan Burgess, Owner & PhysiotherapistJordan Burgess, Owner & Physiotherapist

Jordan’s work experience spans over fifteen years in a variety of practice settings. These have included everything from high-profile sports injury clinics with elite level clientele, to industrial settings within a factory setting to rehabilitating the complex injuries found in a provincial trauma centre.

With this experience behind him, he proudly opened Momentum Physiotherapy in 2009.

Jordan earned an Honours BA in Physical Education from the University of Western Ontario Faculty of Kinesiology in 1995, then earned his B.Sc. in Physical Therapy from the University of Toronto in 1998. He won awards for academic excellence in both programs.

Following graduation, he went through the training and examination process to achieve the highest level of manual therapy accreditation available in Canada, becoming a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Therapists (FCAMT). Of the over 7,300 physiotherapists in Ontario, only a few hundred have achieved this internationally recognized qualification of manual therapy expertise.

In addition to offering manual therapy expertise, he is also a fully certified CSCS, or Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. The combination of these areas of knowledge provides Jordan the ability to thoroughly guide athletes through the injury recovery process to returning to their sport, and can integrate high level performance exercise into their programs at the appropriate time.

He is a member in good standing of the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario and is a member of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association.

Jordan’s post-graduate studies include courses in many areas, including golf injuries and rehabilitation (FITforeGOLF program), dynamic exercise treatment (Fit to Play), the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) and Functional Movement Screen for athletes (FMS).

He is also a fully licensed practitioner of the GunnIMS needling technique.

Jordan has been an instructor in the Canadian Physiotherapy Association’s Orthopaedic Division curriculum since 2004, and teaches many of the local physiotherapists intermediate levels of manual therapy theory and techniques within that framework.

Jordan's wide range of skills have made him popular with athletes that have not been successful with other treatments for their long-standing injuries, and he is known as a troubleshooter for persistent problems in the athletic population.

In his spare time, Jordan enjoys running, playing and coaching hockey, and cheering for the Ottawa Senators!

Angelo Karalekas, Physiotherapist

Angelo has worked in private practice for over 15 years, treating a diverse group of clients ranging from office workers and manual labourers to elite level athletes. He received a B.Sc. in Biology from Ottawa University before moving out west to complete his physiotherapy degree at the University of Alberta in 1997.

Since childhood, sports have been a big part of Angelo’s life and strongly influenced him to pursue a career in physiotherapy. He played soccer internationally while living in Europe and has also played basketball, tennis, and football at different levels. His passion for sports and physiotherapy have merged often in his work as head trainer for teams such as NAIT men’s basketball , Edmonton Icemen football, and the Edmonton Northwest regional women’s soccer team. Angelo has also served as part of the medical teams at many other events including provincial volleyball tournaments, nationals figure skating and the World Track and Field Championships.

Angelo is frequently taking courses and attending seminars in order to expand his knowledge base and refine his clinical skills. The post-graduate courses he’s taken include manual therapy, trigger point dry needling (Kinetacore), acupuncture (AFCI), and functional movement assessment (SFMA). He has also trained in vestibular rehabilitation which is a rather unique area of physiotherapy, dealing with the treatment of vertigo (BPPV), dizziness and other balance issues.

In addition to his clinical practice, Angelo serves as an assessor in the Quality Management Program for the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario, where he is also a member in good standing. The goal of the program is to maintain standards of practice and promote competence and professionalism among physiotherapists.

In his spare time, Angelo can likely be found tinkering at home doing some sort of renovations, riding his bike or just hanging out with his family.

Within the School of Physical Therapy, Kirsten’s research group won the 2012 London District CPA-OPA Physiotherapy Book Prize, awarded to the most outstanding research project for their systematic review on the effectiveness of hip strengthening in the treatment of patellofemoral pain syndrome. In addition, Kirsten won the MPT Clinical Excellence Award, awarded to the graduating student who exemplified the values of respect, excellence and compassion throughout clinical placements.

Sports have always been a big part of Kirsten’s life, and led her to pursue a career in physiotherapy. Upon graduating from physio school, she was accepted to the Sports Medicine Fellowship at the Fowler-Kennedy Sports Medicine Clinic in London, ON. This unique and competitive program focuses on mentorship and professional development in a multidisciplinary sports medicine environment. Here, Kirsten had the opportunity to work closely with highly skilled physiotherapists, strength and conditioning specialists, sports medicine physicians and orthopedic surgeons. She was the head physiotherapist for all the Fanshawe College varsity teams. In addition, Kirsten has worked with Hockey Canada, London FC PDL soccer team and has been on the medical team for Skate Canada International Grand Prix and the World Figure Skating Championships in 2013.

Kirsten has made professional development a very high priority early on in her career. She is currently preparing to challenge her first set of exams to attain her Diploma in Sports Physiotherapy, and is studying towards becoming a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Therapists (FCAMT). She is a member in good standing with College of Physiotherapists of Ontario and is a member of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association.
