Waymen Wong, BSc.Kin, DPT, MTC, FCAMPT, FAAOPMT, MCPA, Doctor of Physiotherapy
Waymen graduated with his Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree in 2002 with high honours from the University of St. Augustine in Florida, USA. Later that same year he received his Manual Therapy Certificate (MTC) from the same university. In 2003 he moved to Seattle Washington to practice in a sports medicine clinic working along side orthopaedic doctors and surgeons treating college level and professional athletes, such as the Mariners. He continued to further his orthopaedic training through the Ola Grimsby Insitute by completing a residency in Seattle and then a post-doctoral fellowship in Chicago. In 2006 he completed this rigorous process and became a Fellow in both the Canadian and American Academies for Manual Therapy. He then returned to Vancouver, BC and practiced in several different clinics before opening his own clinic, Kerrisdale Orthopaedic Manual Therapy and Sports Medicine. Prior to life as physiotherapist, in 1988 Dr. Wong received his Bachelors of Science in Kinesology degree with honours from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada, and had worked as a Kinesiologist and as a personal trainer devising and overseeing exercise programs for injured athletes as well as patients hurt in motor vehicle or work related accidents.
Waymen has been involved with the Ola Grimsby Institute through assisting in the residency programs and coordinating courses in Canada, and is a contributing author in the academic textbook “Science, Theory and Clinical Application in Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy: Scientific Therapeutic Exercise Progressions : The Neck and Upper Extremity”. He sits on the Extended Scope of Practice Task Force and the Professional Development Advisory Council for the provincial physiotherapy association (PABC).
Waymen has specialized training in treating temporomandibular disorders (orofacial pain) and in treating sports performance when it is affected by breathing and jaw dysfunction as they can impact postural biomechanics, power generation, and core stability through the ligamentous system of the body.
