Dr. Kelly Pennell: Staff Chiropractor Yonge & St. Clair
Our staff Chiropractor Dr. Kelly Pennell is a unique therapist. She has over 10 years of diverse experience, including private practice; treating professional athletes; working with orthopedic surgeons in specialty post-operative rehabilitation; performing clinical research in gait analysis and injury; and working as part of multidisciplinary teams.
Kelly enjoys treating a wide cross-section of patients, typical of the varied patient population we see at our clinics. From office workers to athletes to retirees, from children to the elderly. A large number of acute physical injuries and chronic physical conditions can benefit from chiropractic treatment.
Beyond being a great Chiropractor, Kelly is also a great fit with our team, and with our clinic philosophy. She is a Rehabilitation Specialist, having completed a Masters in Rehabilitation Sciences after graduating from Chiropractic College. She has worked alongside Physiotherapists in past roles, and her clinical practice is focused on functional recovery and optimizing physical performance.
Rehabilitation focused Chiropractors such as Kelly approach patient care much like our Physiotherapists do, with an emphasis on hands-on therapy (such as myofascial release and joint mobilization/manipulation), home exercise programming, and education.
Like our Physiotherapists, Kelly also incorporates both passive and active rehabilitation strategies that are driven by clinical evidence. The close alignment of our staff members allows for the smooth transfer of patients (when warranted), and facilitates clinical knowledge sharing within our team.
If you have any questions about chiropractic treatment, or want to know if it’s right for you, please feel free to contact Kelly at [email protected].
Chiropractic Services at Toronto Physiotherapy
Having our Chiropractor on staff helps increase the breadth and depth of our team, and expand the scope of our physical rehabilitation offerings.
Like other health care practitioners, Chiropractors can vary in their clinical focus, methodology, training, and skill set. Chiropractors can offer a range of therapies including: patient education, exercise therapy, manipulation or mobilization of the spine or extremity joints, myofascial and active release therapy (ART), and more. While their approach can differ in some ways from that of Physiotherapists, these distinct disciplines can also be very complementary.
As with our staff Physiotherapists, Dr Pennell has extensive training and experience treating a wide range of orthopedic injuries and conditions, and can also employ a variety of therapeutic tools including ultrasound, electrotherapies and others.
Chiropractic treatment at Toronto Physiotherapy can be covered by employee extended health insurance benefits, motor vehicle accident insurance, or qualifies as a medical expense income tax credit.
