Christopher Dong
Interim Physiotherapist

Chris holds a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from the University of British Columbia and a Master’s degree in Physical Therapy from the University of Queensland. He has experience working in a hospital setting as well as different physiotherapy clinics. Chris grew up quite active and did sports throughout his life, especially track and field. He discovered his passion for rehabilitation and physiotherapy after a sports injury tearing his hamstring on the track. After months of excellent physiotherapy guided rehab, he was back to running and able to compete as a member of UBC’s Varsity track team. Chris wanted to combine his passion for human movement and helping people to get back to doing the things they love.

He equally enjoys working with an athlete wanting to get back to their sport, or with a grandfather wanting to play with his grandkids. He has volunteered as a weight training coach for Special Olympics Vancouver, and has worked as a personal trainer and fitness instructor. Chris wants to continue learning, improve constantly and empower people to achieve their goals. His approach involves creating strong relationships with his clients, listening to their concerns, and creating a goal-oriented, individualized treatment plan.

In his spare time Chris likes to run, play volleyball, go to the gym and achieve his own fitness goals while spending downtime with family and friends.
