Bergen is a physiotherapist who specializes in the treatment of sports injuries, work injuries, and motor vehicle accidents.
He says, “The best advice I was ever given is to open my ears and close my mouth. Because 10-minutes of good listening can usually help solve a patient’s pain more than any stretch, pill, or magic cure ever will. When we understand the problem the answer is usually close at hand.”
Bergen is passionate about athletics and regularly works with junior, provincial, and national athletes. In 2017, he was recognized by the Canadian Physiotherapy Association for his work in developing a role for ring-side physiotherapists treating combat sports injuries in professional MMA, and boxing.
He is a recreational lifter and also teaches Brazilian Jiujitsu. He studied at the University of Saskatchewan and liked to hunt and fish.
