The Killens Reid Physiotherapy Clinic was founded by Louise Killens and Suzanne Reid in Ottawa in 1992. The practice has grown and evolved wonderfully over the years, both in physical size, staff and professional skills.

    Suzanne and Louise, as well as their team, share a strong commitment to the profession and a core belief that hands-on intervention, ongoing education and active patient involvement are at the root of a successful therapeutic outcome. They believe in providing high-quality, one-on-one physiotherapy assessments and treatments with specific focus on manual techniques, client education and promotion of a healthy lifestyle. They strongly encourage their clients to assume responsibility for their health and to participate actively in their recovery. Suzanne and Louise believe laughter and a positive spirit are two essential keys for healing.

    The History of Physiotherapy in Canada:

    "The KillensReid team of registered physiotherapists and massage and osteopathy therapists are dedicated to improving physical performance and functional independence, preventing and managing pain and promoting a healthy, fit lifestyle."

    Physiotherapists made their early mark in Canadian history during both World Wars when they were recruited to treat injured soldiers and war amputees. From these tentative beginnings, physiotherapists have emerged as first-contact, autonomous and important members of Canada’s health care team.

    Post-war, when many women left the occupations they had assumed during the war, a small group of determined women challenged the prevailing social expectations and refused to give up their profession. These women were the founding ‘mothers’ of the physiotherapy profession today, which has grown exponentially over the years in numbers, expertise and scope of practice. Along with these changes, has been an increasing focus on continuing education, specialization and research.

    Education for Physiotherapists:
    Entry-level education for physiotherapists in Canada takes place in one of 13 university programs across Canada. The minimum qualification to practice is a Bachelor of Science degree in Physiotherapy. Many institutions now offer post-graduate programs in physiotherapy at the Masters or Doctoral levels.

    In addition to the academic requirements, physiotherapists must complete a minimum of 1000 hours of practical experience in a clinical setting (i.e. hospital, rehabilitation centre, private clinic).
