CURTIS TAIT, BSC, MPT, IMS
Curtis has always enjoyed helping people, which made his journey to become a physiotherapist a natural one. Practicing since 2012, Curtis started his studies at the University of Victoria in 2004 studying kinesiology. This whetted his appetite to understand all aspects of the human body, and most especially movement. He reached his goal of becoming a physiotherapist graduating from the University of British Columbia in 2012, he has been practicing in Victoria since.
Curtis has a bottomless appetite for both food and for learning and growing professionally. To this end he has taken courses in manual and manipulative therapy, IMS/dry needling, vestibular and neurological rehabilitation, as well as chronic pain seminars. Having worked in private practice, pain management, head injury programs, and in neuro-rehabilitation, Curtis works with all types of clients. Sports injuries, chronic pain conditions, vestibular, neurological and concussion presentations are all within Curtis' area of expertise. While he maintains a diverse interest in treating all types of conditions, Curtis particularly enjoys spinal pain, headaches, hip, knee and ankle conditions, sports injuries, temporomandibular dysfunction, chronic pain, diabetes-related conditions, vestibular disorders, stroke and spinal cord injuries.
Inspired and enthused by an approach that focuses on providing his clients with the highest standard of care, Curtis completed post graduate training with The Evidence In Motion Institute of Health Professionals; a stellar program that focuses on evidence based practice and the clinical science of physiotherapy.
Curtis was naturally drawn to Tall Tree Integrated Health Centre based on the clinic’s orientation to excellence, fun, and positively changing the landscape of healthcare on Vancouver Island and in BC. He is very excited to be working with like-minded professionals dedicated to making a positive difference to their patients, community, and profession.
When not engrossed in the latest BJSM publication, Curtis loves spending time with his family and friends travelling around BC and the west coast finding adventures involving the beach and mountains. Having grown-up in northern BC and the Yukon he relishes any chance to play in the snow, and has maintained a love for board sports, basketball, photography and anything involving creative movement.
