Stuart Wakefield, Registered Kinesiologist

Stuart has been a Registered Kinesiologist in Ontario since the inception of the College in 2013. His main focus has been treating movement dysfunctions as a result of acute injuries, chronic pain, or to simply improve one’s overall efficiency in movement and sport.

A graduate of The University of Guelph in Kinesiology and Humber College in Fitness and Health, Stuart has been working as a personal trainer and now as a Kinesiologist for 10 years. In 2014, Stuart’s passion for continuing education led him to the Evidence Based Fitness Academy where he trained under podiatrist Dr. Emily Splichal, and became certified as a Master Instructor for teaching the Barefoot Training Specialist workshops to fellow fitness and rehabilitation professionals. As a result, this has had a dramatic effect on how he treats his own clients. With a focus on the foot as the foundation to human movement, Stuart assesses and treats his clients based on foot and lower extremity assessments as well as gait assessments.

As someone who has experienced major foot surgery, Stuart understands the importance of having a stable foundation in order to maximize efficiency. This form of treatment can have a major impact on all age groups and athletes for injury rehabilitation, injury prevention and enhanced athletic performance.

Stuart grew up as an athlete and enjoys to play basketball and baseball recreationally to this day. He currently lives in Essex with his wife, Sarah, and their daughter, Clare.

COVID-19 Update

PhysioFit has been open since the Ontario government and our regulators provided guidelines on Physiotherapists operating as an essential service.  Since late March we have operated under a strict protocol to ensure the health and safety of our team and our clients.  If you need emergency or urgent care, if you have been injured, if you are in pain or are in need of post operative physiotherapy you can trust us with your rehabilitation needs.  David Forrest is the sole treating therapist in the clinic.  Treating one client at a time.  All areas of the clinic are set up to ensure social distancing from point of entry throughout your treatment.

The following COVID-19 protocol is in place:

  • A face mask/face covering is required while in the clinic
  • Indoor shoes to be worn in the clinic and soles of shoes sprayed with alcohol upon entering the clinic
  • Sanitize hands upon arrival
  • Complete COVID-19 Screen and sign attestation
  • Place all personal belongings in a bin (bins are sanitized after each client)
  • All equipment used during treatment/active rehab is placed in a designated area and sanitized after each use

At PhysioFit we are committed to ensuring your health and safety while we provide exceptional care throughout your treatment plan, this is the PhysioFit difference.

Check back to see updates as we receive information from the government and our regulators.  Clinic hours will be flexible to accommodate the needs of our clients and we will be introducing dedicated clinic hours for seniors and those considered vulnerable so they can access the physiotherapy and rehabilitation services they need.  Stay healthy and stay safe.
