Ryan Sleik

Ryan co-owns Creekside Physiotherapy, a multidisciplinary clinic in Kimberley BC that provides concussion and vestibular rehabilitation care in the East Kootenay region. As a rural practitioner, he has a unique perspective in working with limited resources and referral options in his region.

Ryan’s graduate research explored the relationship between attention and anxiety on motor control in a dual-task context. He has treated vestibular, neurological, and persisting pain disorders since graduating from McMaster University in 2003. He completed his Certificate in Vestibular Rehabilitation at Emory University in 2016 and joined the Shift Concussion Management Group in 2015 as a clinical instructor.

His interest in persistent pain, whiplash disorders, neuroplasticity, and functional neuro-optometry helps him see the many dimensions associated with treating persistent concussion patterns.
