Bentzen Takyi

Physiotherapist

Bentzen Takyi (PT, BAHons, MScPT, CSCS) graduated from York University with a Bachelor of Arts specializing in Kinesiology and went on to receive a Master of Science in Physical Therapy from Queen’s University. He has completed courses in soft tissue release, pre-rehabilitation and currently is a member of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS).

He has a comprehensive understanding of managing and treating acute and chronic conditions such as neck and low back pain and peripheral joint injuries (shoulder, knee, ankle, to name a few). He is also knowledgeable in preoperative and postoperative treatment and management. Bentzen is dedicated to promoting a healthy lifestyle and physical activity. He uses a combination of primarily active- based therapy, education, and manual therapy to help patients get back to doing what they enjoy, but more importantly, build the resilience to avoid future injury.

Prior to becoming a physiotherapist, Bentzen worked as a fitness consultant for the City of Vaughan and worked with training elite basketball athletes. Having a strong interest in basketball, he has worked with several teams, camps, and showcases as a therapist on-site. He also plays in an ultimate frisbee league and has one full marathon completed under his belt.
