Kim McArthur Bio

Kim McArthur (Yae), Physiotherapist at Van Sports and Physiotherapy Clinic, Vancouver, British Columbia

Kim has been working in the downtown core since 2009 after re-locating to B.C. from Ontario, and look forward to many more years working in the area. Kim got her book-smarts from University of Toronto and received a Masters of Physical Therapy in 2007, and Honours degrees in Kinesiology from McMaster University in 2005.

As a physiotherapist, her goal is to identify source of dysfunction with a thorough assessment and provide the best possible combination of treatment techniques to get you back playing as quickly & as physically prepared for the challenges of your chosen activity as possible.

Kim’s days are filled with treating weekend warriors, athletes, and regular Joe/Jane-blows; those pesky office repetitive strains, mistaking capabilities of our (aging) body without proper training, as well as those bumps, bruises, strains and sprains.

Rehabbing people back to hitting the slopes, back to the golf course, chasing down that huck, playing with your kids, or simply to be able to work… Whatever your goals, she believes an individualized treatment plan to your body’s specific needs will be the most successful. Her passion is helping people get back to the activities, both recreational and functional, that bring smiles inside and out.

Kim also enjoys working with various levels of sport. Working with the 2012 Olympic Canadian women’s soccer team in training camp, addressing the aches and pains of hours of training, providing preventative and rehabilitative treatment of the athletes. Kim was apart of the performing arts medical team for “A Chorus Line” at The Cannon Theatre and was a therapist for BC Rugby teams (U23 women’s, U18 men’s). Kim enjoys participating at local sporting events like Seek the Peak, beach soccer and giving educational sessions to local running groups.

Additional qualifications: Acupuncture and/or Dry Needling*, Certified Gunn Intramuscular Stimulation practitioner (CGMIS), Custom Orthotics, Intermediate certificate in Orthopaedic Manual Therapy, Clinical Pilates, Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation

Why did you choose your current profession?

Because its awesome! Getting people back or being apart of getting people back to life is an exciting and rewarding part of my job. Working with people keeps me on my toes, and I love that! Assessing the 'problem' or issue and thinking critically about the potential causes, coming to a working diagnosis, putting a plan together, and finally seeing the whole process come together with evidence of improvement... how great is this rational process!?! ok... it doesn't always work like this with a bow on top, but this is the template and we always work towards improvement, 110%, and living life active.

Who influenced your profession choice the most?

Clients present, past and future... people influence me and motivate me and help me feel so lucky to be doing what I'm doing :)
