Jordan Burgess RPT, BScPT, FCAMPT, GunnIMS, CSCS, SFMA
Jordan’s physiotherapy practice spans twenty years in many practice settings. These have included everything from high-profile sports injury clinics with elite level clientele to industrial clinics within a factory setting to rehabilitating the complex and serious injuries found in a provincial trauma centre.
In 2008, he opened Momentum Physiotherapy Clinic in his Riverside South neighbourhood, delivering expert care to clients outside of the city core, seeing athletes and community members alike. His practice continued to evolve and in 2016, he took his expertise in physiotherapy and exercise physiology, combined it with his love for improving sport performance and injury prevention in youth athletes and became a partner in Amped Sports Lab (www.ampedsportslab.com) in Ottawa, Ontario. Within Amped, he has opened a state-of-the-art clinical treatment area as well as having a performance gym and an ice surface to carry out physiotherapy sessions to help his patients recover faster.
There are many ways to approach client care as a physiotherapist, but Jordan believes to be effective, he must be hands-on with his clients. He achieved the highest level of manual therapy accreditation available in Canada, becoming a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Therapists (FCAMT) in 2004.
After the Fellowship in manual therapy was awarded, Jordan trained in Gunn IMS, (Intramuscular Stimulation) to add needling techniques to his manual therapy approach.
He then returned to his original exercise background from his degree at Western, and became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), the premier performance coach designation in North America.
His combination of manual therapy, IMS and exercise training expertise provides Jordan the ability to guide all levels of athlete from the acute injury phase through the entire recovery process including the training they need to return to their sport. He can integrate high level performance exercise and sport vision training into their programs at the appropriate time.
Jordan’s wide range of skills have made him popular with athletes that have not been successful with other treatments for their long-standing injuries, and he is known as a troubleshooter for persistent problems in the athletic population.

Throughout her university studies, Emma served as a member of the Sports Physiotherapy Canada Ontario executive committee, was the student therapist for the uOttawa women’s rugby team, and worked with Team Canada’s medical team at the Rio 2016 Olympics (with the hopes of returning to another Olympics soon)!

This has helped to shape her ability to develop tailored programs and treatment plans for people of all ages and all activity levels. In recent years, she was the lead physiotherapist of a very successful aquatic therapy program which provided a unique setting for active rehabilitation.
Growing up in Ottawa, Emma’s life revolved around a busy, competitive soccer schedule until she suffered her second ACL injury. No stranger to a daunting rehabilitation process, she was extremely fortunate to work with a talented physiotherapist. They inspired her throughout her journey, giving her ownership and responsibility for her own care. With such an exemplary professional model, Emma now hopes to ‘pay it forward’ by providing her clients with a similarly positive and empowering experience.
Emma is a lifelong learner and has already taken several courses in acupuncture, dry needling, athletic taping, K-taping and Part A of the McKenzie Method for the low back. She looks forward to completing her manual therapy levels and concussion management courses in the near future. Emma’s treatment style is a combination approach of manual therapy and tailored, functional exercises that relate to the goals at hand. Emma believes in breaking down troublesome or painful activities into smaller components in order to train the system as a whole and work to achieve a functional movement pattern. She believes in encouraging her clients to be their best selves and incorporates a variety of tools to support their individual needs.
Emma’s personal motto is “leave people better than you found them” and she looks forward to working with you to help you reach your goals, whatever they may be.
