Tait has been an amazing part of our team as a kinesiologist and now he is attending chiropractic school at CMCC in Toronto. We are excited to see him go on this four year graduate program and come back as Dr. Tait. Good luck Tait!
Tait is a UBC Okanagan Graduate with a degree in Human Kinetics. Majoring in Clinical Physiology, his learning was geared towards physical body function, biomechanics and human anatomy. Tait specializes in tailoring treatments to his patient’s individual needs; he builds workouts and routines around his patients, ensuring the therapy is as beneficial to each person’s goals and well-being as possible.
During his time at UBC Okanagan Tait played four years with the Men’s Varsity Soccer Team as a goalkeeper. His time spent on and off the field as a varsity athlete paired perfectly with his kinesiology degree. Originally from Tsawwassen, Tait but was drawn to the Okanagan for the superb seasonal activities it has to offer. His passion for sport and activity roots deeply into his life from childhood and plays an important role in his life today.
Tait recognizes the importance of individualizing exercise due the the immense variability in personal body type and functional ability. Using a combination of functional movement screens, baseline measures, and exercise history, patients will receive unique routine to get their rehabilitation on track and enjoy the experience along the way.
Tait’s mission is to get individuals excited about exercise. Home care often goes overlooked when prescribed to patients. His approach is to incorporate the necessary aspects of personal home care with the individual’s desired exercise goals. The main goal is to get people comfortable exercising post-injury and ultimately understand their body and what it takes to prevent potential re-injury.
