By Joseph Kenny


After 37 years of helping keep Brock University student-athletes healthy, Joe Kenny (MEd ’85) retired in 2018.

Kenny, was honoured by Brock University. He and his wife Karen McAllister-Kenny (MEd ’97) received the Distinguished Alumni Award by the Brock University Alumni Association.

Athletic Therapy Ontario (OATA) has honoured Joe Kenny as the 2023 OATA Trillium Award recipient for his leadership role in advancing the profession in Ontario.


This book is dedicated to the many different individuals who have in some direct or indirect way, contributed to the success of the Brock University Athletic Therapy Clinic and to my personal and professional development.

Athletic Therapy literally means the treatment of physically active individuals and is most often associated with treating injuries in individuals involved with sports or physical activity.

The Brock University Athletic Therapy Clinic’s Mission was more traditional and in line with Van Beek’s idea of supporting athletes in a competitive sport environment. Although the profession continues to evolve and expand its client base and services, the Brock clinic, for the first 50 years, has focused primarily on providing Brock University students with exceptional care and education in the prevention, assessment and treatment of sport and exercise related injuries.
