Owner – Physical Therapist

I graduated with a Masters of Physiotherapy degree from Dalhousie University in Halifax, N.S. in 2010 as well as a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and a Human Resource Management Diploma from St. Mary’s University in Nova Scotia, 2004. I completed my Diploma in Manual Therapy in 2020 and I currently hold a Fellowship with the Canadian Academy of Manual Physical Therapists.

I conduct detailed assessments to clearly identify patients’ needs and I develop a treatment plans with my patients. I combine manual therapy skills with functional dry needling, intramuscular stimulation and therapeutic exercises to help achieve therapeutic goals. My manual therapy skills include both joint mobilizations and manipulations for peripheral joints and spinal segments. I am also proficient in athletic taping. I am friendly, out-going and motivated to get you back to you.

A little about me: I grew up in St. John’s NL, lived in Halifax, NS for twelve years and have been calling beautiful Fort McMurray my home since 2011. Before becoming a Physical Therapist, I am proud to say I served for 8 years in the Canadian Forces as both a Non-Commissioned member and as a Commissioned Officer. I am the proud father of four wonderful boys who keep me busy.

I treat all of the following populations: Athletic, post-surgical, geriatric, WCB, neurological, motor vehicle, and cardio-respiratory. If you’re serious about actually getting results, book with me or my team today.
