Hussein Khakee

Registered Physiotherapist

As a graduate of University of Toronto's Master of Science in Physiotherapy program (2014), Hussein has developed extensive experience in clinical care, teaching and mentorship to physiotherapists, medical students and various patient populations. He espouses a mechanical approach to treatment while communicating and integrating into patient healthcare teams. Said integration is the key to patient positive outcomes and rehabilitation. Hussein is an avid reader and continuously reviews most recent literature from various professions to implement his care. He works hard to understand the roles and scopes of other complementary interventions, to holistically care for his clients.

Hussein has special interests in mechanical low back pain, vestibular rehabilitation and sports/exercise related injuries. As a recreational long distance runner, he uses previous personal experiences to facilitate physical activity in his clients, addressing various injuries, while recognizing contributing factors that could cause injury moving forward.

Hussein has previous experiences working and managing clinics in corporate environments. He decided to make a shift to small business, opening Brant Lakeshore Physiotherapy to provide an accountable, accessible and personal client care experience, as he feels this creates an environment facilitative to patient recovery.
