Meet Our Team

With almost 20 years of clinical experience as an injury specialist, in addition to working directly with various athlete populations, founder Karen Nichol has really learned to listen and understand what each client’s goals and motivations are. 


This vast experience has allowed for Royal City Physio to clearly define which specific manual therapy techniques and rehab exercises work most effectively to treat various injuries.  

At Royal City Physio, all of our physiotherapists have these same philosophies in mind.


All of our physiotherapists listen closely, perform manual treatment, and provide specific exercises and guidance with each and every visit. We too lead very active lifestyles and appreciate the impact that an injury can have on our life.
