Kirsten Balcom



Kirsten graduated from the University of New Brunswick in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology followed by a Master of Science in Physiotherapy from Dalhousie University in 2017. Since graduating, Kirsten has worked as a Physiotherapist with the Nova Scotia Health Authority in various roles gaining experience in treating Orthopedics, Complex Persistent Pain and has developed a special interest in Neurological conditions, working with acute stroke and Spinal Cord Injuries. She enjoys working with people of all ages and continues to work part time with the health authority mainly in geriatrics.  

With an ongoing desire to continue education and expand knowledge of a holistic full body approach, Kirsten entered the specialized area of Pelvic Health Physiotherapy. Kirsten completed Level 1 and Level 2 training for Urinary Incontinence and Pelvic Pain with no plans to stop there. Kirsten's practice is open to treating all genders in an inclusive environment. 

Kirsten’s approach to physiotherapy is guided by client-centered goals with assessment and treatment focused on limitations and return to desired activity.

In Kirsten’s spare time, she can be found working out at the gym, hiking, playing/watching basketball, softball, and various other sports, or just relaxing with her two cats, one of which has a neurological condition requiring extra special love and attention.
