Tell us a bit about yourself
Hi, I am Kelvin Yeung, a Registered Physiotherapist and owner of Launch Rehab & Kensington Square Physio.
Tell us a few personal interests and hobbies
I love working out, cooking, all sports, and before having kids, video games.
When and why did you choose this industry over others?
I chose this industry back when I was 15 years old. I have always been fascinated by how the human body worked and I was considering a career as a physician. At the same time, I was a competitive and injury-prone athlete, which exposed to me to the field of physiotherapy. I loved the idea of being part of someone’s recovery journey from start to finish. I felt by being a physiotherapist, I was able to create much more personal and meaningful relationships with my patients as you usually spend 4 to 6 weeks with a patient during their recovery process.
How does a financial planner play a role in your personal and business life?
A financial planner helps me in a similar way to how I help my patients. They’re able to help set a path towards a particular goal in my life and with check-ins, are able to adapt, react, and adjust accordingly to the changes that are happening both in my personal and business life.
As a clinic owner, how do you keep your team motivated?
Our team believes in a few simple values. Accountability, integrity, and growth.
As a clinic owner, I take full responsibility for the success and failure of my team. By keeping myself accountable and acting with integrity, I hope to set an example for my team. We create weekly and monthly “lunch and learns” to keep everyone up to date with the latest research and clinical gems. But most importantly, our clinic culture abides by the philosophy of being a family unit. Maybe cause I’m a dad, but I look at all my practitioners as my kids and I try my best to take care of them.
What's the most fulfilling part of the job?
The smile of a patient when they walk out of the clinic feeling 100%.
Who should be reaching out to you?
Anyone who wants to improve their quality of life through movement and exercise. We are a clinic that welcomes everyone, as long as they want to improve. No matter your age or exercise experience, we will be there alongside to help you! I encourage you to check out my website (www.launchrehab.ca)
