Ranil Kumara, Clinical Director (Retired)
After 33 years of successfully treating thousands of patients and running numerous rehabilitation clinics, Ranil has retired from the profession of Physiotherapy.
Ranil established a successful group of clinics trusted by patients from all demographics including seniors, children, performers and athletes, to address their health and therapy goals. These clinics provide rehabilitation therapies based on an in-depth assessment of factors such as the mechanism of injury, the time since onset (chronic vs. acute), and sporting/occupational activities of each patient. This assessment is combined with detailed orthopedic testing during the initial consultation to create a full clinical picture. The Greater Toronto Rehabilitation healthcare practitioners use evidence-based, active-oriented rehabilitation to achieve optimum results. Ranil believes that the best clinicians are those who teach their patients how to relieve short-term symptoms and achieve the long-term goals of the healing process by including home programs as part of every treatment protocol.
Ranil was the owner and clinical director of Greater Toronto Rehabilitation Clinics. He was also a partner in a group of fitness facilities located throughout Toronto (Higher Ground Health Clubs). Ranil graduated from the University of Toronto Physiotherapy program and completed his MBA at the Schulich School of Business, York University. He was certified by the Titleist Performance Institute and Fit4Golf for golf-specific assessments and treatments.
A physiotherapist for over 33 years, Ranil gained extensive clinical experience and leadership skills. He worked with a special team of healthcare practitioners at the Artists’ Health Centre at Toronto Western Hospital, providing health services to the arts community in Toronto including dancers, actors, singers, musicians, visual artists and all those who work full-time in the production, training, coaching and support roles of this industry. He was the consulting physiotherapist for company members of Mirvish Productions, Canstage Productions, Disney Cruise Ships, and numerous dance, film, TV and musical productions for 18 years.
Ranil was an examiner for both the University of Toronto’s Department of Rehabilitation and the National Physiotherapy Board Examinations. He was a volunteer for the Atlanta Committee for the Olympic Games in 1996. He was also a member of the on-site rehabilitation team for numerous skating, volleyball, ultimate frisbee, and martial arts competitions, and for national level competitions such as the ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Competition, Skate Canada Junior Nationals, Skate Canada International, and Skate Canada Festival of Synchronized Skating Championships.
