I graduated from the University of Toronto with a bachelor of science in human physiology and physics in 1988. Taking my interest in physics and physiology to the University of Toronto's faculty of medicine, I went on to complete my degree in physical therapy in 1992. I received my credentials in mechanical diagnosis and treatment of the spine in 1999 through the McKenzie Institute International, one of only 55 in Canada at the time. I received my certificate in acupuncture from the Acupuncture Foundation of Canada Institute in 1997. Postgraduate studies have included extensive work in manual therapy, sports proprioceptive and kinesio taping, craniomandibular disorders, M.E.T. (medical exercise therapy) and the treatment of golf related injuries. I completed my doctorate in physical therapy through EIM institute of Health Professions.
I've of course been a member of the Canadian Physiotherapy association since 1992, belonging to the orthopaedic, sports physiotherapy and private practice divisions. I currently own a practice just east of Toronto where I choose to limit my practice to musculoskeletal conditions, orthopaedic and sports related injuries and motor vehicle accident injuries.
A large proportion of my patients are people over 50 suffering from osteoarthritis or who just live sedentary lifestyles who benefit greatly from a program that includes effective stretching. I've had the good fortune of working with athletes, both competitive and recreational in hockey, soccer, swimming, rugby, baseball, rowers, triathletes, skiers, snowboarders, and runners. I have a special interest in skiing, snow boarding, weight training, golfing, and swimming. My current participation in sports includes playing golf, skiing, snowboarding, scuba diving, and weight training.
