Brandon M. Butt MSc. PT, BSc. Kin, M. Manip.Thpy, FCAMPT, CGIMS
Brandon completed a BSc. in Kinesiology in 2000 at Simon Fraser University. In 2003 he graduated from the University of Toronto with a MSc. in Physical Therapy. After 2.5 years of clinical practice, Brandon travelled to Curtin University, West Australia, for post graduate training in spinal and peripheral joint manipulation, completing a Masters in Manipulative Therapy. Brandon acted as a teaching assistant for clinical skill labs for the Bachelor and Masters of Physiotherapy students and as a clinical instructor/examiner during his time at Curtin University. He was also a Clinical Instructor for clinical skills labs at James Cook University in Townsville Queensland.
Brandon is currently a Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physical Therapists (FCAMPT). To further pursue his interest in sports physiotherapy he completed his Sport Certificate training through the Canadian Physiotherapy Association Sports Division in 2009. In 2010 Brandon completed his certification for intramuscular stimulation (IMS) through Dr. Gunn’s Institute for the Study and Treatment of Pain (iSTOP).
Since beginning his career in 2003 Brandon has had a keen interest in Sports Physiotherapy and has worked with rugby, soccer, lacrosse, baseball and hockey teams (Jr A) as well as many other athletes. From 2011 to 2018 Brandon was a physiotherapist with the Canadian National Ski Team and was the Chief Physical Therapist for the National Synchronised Skating Championships in 2008. He travelled with the Canadian Men’s Speed Team (Downhill and SuperG) to the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.
In addition to sports physiotherapy, Brandon has also taken courses for vestibular rehabilitation and the treatment of osteoporosis. His treatment philosophy centers on the use of manual therapy, soft tissue techniques and intramuscular stimulation to relieve pain and movement issues and reinforce this treatment with exercise to improve movement patterns, tissue quality and restore physical function.
Brandon and his new family – his wife Ashley and sons Ryley and Jake – are excited to be in the Okanagan and explore the region. He is excited to pursue all of his interests in the outdoors – fishing, skiing, mountain biking, backpacking and anything else his colleagues at SunCity Physiotherapy introduce him to!
