Dr. Elliott Perkins DC, HBSc, CSCS
I have a passion for health, and a drive to help improve the lives of those around me. I work with people of all backgrounds, from office workers with debilitating jaw pain to elite athletes recovering from spinal injuries.
I have advanced training in chronic pain management, jaw & facial pain and sports injury rehabilitation.
It is my goal to bridge the gap between the highest quality research and clinical practice to better support people suffering from painful musculoskeletal conditions. I provide the highest standard of care for the complete management of musculoskeletal problems. I partner with patients to promote positivity, independence, and a healthy, active lifestyle.
I have spent over 8 years learning the complex nature of the human body. I have worked in the musculoskeletal rehabilitation field for several years in multiple settings. I have worked in a hospital setting, as part of a team with emergency physicians and other health professionals. I have worked with professional athletes and sports teams in athletic development and sports injury rehab. In my Kingston practice, I work with everyone from acute & chronic pain patients to individuals with neurological disorders, with a focus on TMJ & facial pain disorders.
My Goal: making sense of pain
There are many myths, misunderstandings and unnecessary fears about pain and the body. Most people, including many health professionals, do not have a modern understanding of pain. By making sense of pain we can learn to manage and overcome it. My goal is to educate the people I work with about their bodies and empower them to take control of their recovery from persistent pain.
